I've observed none of these problems - and considering just about every one of them is made in China, I'm quite surprised. The white ones, where appropriate, give much more apparent visual bang for the buck but I've realized the warm-white is more applicable to living space. Where I can get away with it I'll mix the two, brightening the area and still not making it look like a workshop.
Now the house isn't full-blown LED: I have quite a number of the squiggly fluorescent bulbs still in use - only slightly less efficient (both relative to incandescent). I still have a stock of these and they'll be cycled through in places where they make sense: places where the light stays on for a while between toggles. Fluorescent bulbs typically fail when the filament finishes burning out (black in bulb is slow sputtering of filament metal ions - as it slowly thins). They still last a long time, with the occasional loser. And an occasional breakage.
My grow-bulbs for seed started are mixtures of red and blue LED's in more-or-less wands. No failures yet and for the time they're in use (Feb, Mar, Apr) they're on rough 12/7 . And the seedlings just love them.
Nope, LEDs by themselves are perfectly OK and will last their typical 50.000 to 100.000 hours or so. It is all of the shoddy electronics they use to power them that fails. You know what it is like: anything they think off to shave a few cents of the total price is a bonus. If you can ride on thereputation of LEDs who cares if it fails prematurely?
Originally being an electronics engineer instead of a programmer I can guarantee that the first thing you need to know as one of those is to work out the thermal analysis of any device you design. Alas, finding people who really understand that is just as difficult as finding a really good software developer.
Been there (several times)... That's why I now write my logs in UTC
BTW... is daylight change day not next in two weeks?
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
And then there was the time they took my field data capture system across state lines (and time zones), and called me to say the system was "off" by an hour (according to their watches; which weren't set to the proper time).
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.

Had a Win10 update this morning.
Took hours to download and install and then about half an hour to restart.
Largest update I've had in years.
I'm not really sure what changed either, except that my mouse feels a bit off.
It moves slightly faster, but not always.
I've checked my mouse settings and it seems pretty standard.
Disabled the mouse pointer precision enhancement, which feels more natural.
It sounds pretty ridiculous and I can't back it up with data, but something feels off nonetheless.
