Patches! We don’t need no stinkin’ patches!

It’s time again for our monthly visitor.  No, not that one.  I’m talking about Microsoft patches.   We’re pretty aggressive here in applying them.   How aggressive?  We like to play Russian Roulette by patching all servers within 48hours of patch release.   Strangely enough, we’ve been really lucky.  I think we’ve had only five outages in the seven or so years of patching.  I would prefer more time to test, but that’s not my call.  However, if something breaks, my team has to pick up the pieces.

How about you?  When do you patch?
