    Made My Day

    Just got sent this and it really made my day:

    Dear Technical Support,

    18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2,
    which I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are
    apparently conflicts between these two products and the only solution
    was to try and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

    To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several
    other applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and
    Playboy
    6.9.
    Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better.

    I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and
    left a virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for
    several
    weeks.
    Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the
    same time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each
    other they caused severe damage to my hardware.

    I eventually upgraded to Fiancée 1.0, only to discover that this
    product soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0. While Wife 1.0
    tends to use up all my available resources, it does come bundled with
    FreeRumpyPlus and Cleanhouse2005.

    Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife 1.0 could be
    very unstable and costly to run. Any mistakes I made were
    automatically stored in Wife 1.0's memory and could not be deleted.

    They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them.

    Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary, Explorer and E-mail filter, and
    can, without warning, launch TurboStrop and Multi-Whinge. These latter
    products have no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the
    problem
    is.

    Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly,
    requiring ShoeShop Browser for new attachments and Hairstyle Express
    which needs to be reinstalled every other week. Also, when Wife 1.0
    attaches itself to my Saab 93 Convertible hard drive, it often
    crashes.


    Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw,
    which can't be turned off.

    Recently I've been tempted to install Mistress 2005, but there could
    be problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife
    1.0 detects Mistress 2005, it tends to delete all of your Money before
    uninstalling itself.

    Help requested please

    Hi!
    A great take on a old favorite. Oh..btw...Wife 1.0 deletes your Microsoft Money files before uninstalling.

    I noticed another part has been removed:

    Girlfriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 conflict over shared use of the IO port <giggle>

    Woot! Geeks Rulez!

    Hi!
    Arrrrgh! Noooooo! Blue screen of deaaaaaatttthh! Thanks, Unca Bill..for many hours of...umm...challenging misadventures.

    Yes..there is a reason there is no hyperlink to the registry editor...beware! XP even has executables in there..along with a ton of other stuff that may or may not cause the computer to never boot again.

    On a kind note, though...can't imagine a 'puter without freecell! Must..have...freecell!

    >>Oh..servers4me..I'll start work on a multi-boot howto. It's not terribly difficult..but it's not for everyone. I can't imagine having a computer without it.
