Perceptions of supernatural beings reveal feelings about good and bad in humans - Ori Friedman research
UW licensing of Windows 10 requires that machines connect on campus once every 3 months to keep the Win10 license active. If you let the license lapse, you won't be able to run Windows Update to keep it up to date. Aside from not getting fixes and new features, you won't get securoty updates and could be vulnerable to attacks by the bad guys.

If you are working off campus, I'd recommend to connect to the UW VPN at the start of each month and run Windows Update which should keep your machine in good shape. Logging in to the VPN is the same as working on campus.
