    Rant about Software Updates in Mountain Lion
    OK these new software updates that pop up as reminders in the upper left hand corner are driving me crazy!! Even after clearing my notifications they still pop up a few minutes later....look I dont freaking care to update AirAttack right now!! leave me alone!!! Please tell me theres a way to make this go away

    Doesn't the notification go away after a few seconds?

    Are you aware that you can turn notifications off (either entirely or just for a set period of time)?

    Alas you cannot have it both ways. Either important OS X updates or turn it off.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    That's odd. Mine dismiss automatically after a moment or two.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I'm not running ML anymore, but I could have sworn that there was a way to turn individual notifications on and off? Why not just access OS X updates via the Apple icon if that is the case?

    Yeah, something odd is up there.
