I'm getting short of amusing sayings etc so I thought I would go back in Ruffled Feathers to find threads I enjoyed. This is from one such thread titled "Tech Support for Women" 1st post is on #9929
This is the last one on this thread:--

This is the full transcript of something similar that was doing the rounds a couple of years ago. Some of it is a repeat of what has already been quoted in this thread but there are a few amusing new concepts
"Dear Technical Support,
18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from Drinking Mates 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 Lads Night Out 3.1, Football 3pm, and Playboy 6.9.
Successive versions of Girlfriend proved no better. A shareware
program,Party Girl 2.1, which I tried, 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 then 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 FreeSex Plus and Cleanhouse
Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife 1.0 can 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 WhingeExcel. 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. Wife 1.0 also spawns unwelcome child processes
that drain my resources.
These conflict with some of the new games I wanted to try out, warning me
that they are an illegal operation. Also, when Wife 1.0 attaches itself to
my Audi TT hard drive, it often crashes.
Wife 1.0 also comes with a rather annoying pop-up called Mother-In-Law,
which can't be turned off.
Recently I've been tempted to install Mistress 2003, but there could be
problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0
detects Mistress 2003, it tends to delete all of your Money files before
Any help on this matter would be most gratefully received."
Its not an optical illusion!. It just looks like one!.

My final entry--assuming these really are entries at this point. This has gone on long enough, yes?
The birds are back in force and I hear the warblers outside my office window this morning. Yellow, Chestnut-sided, Northern Parula. Red-eyed Vireos aplenty. I'll get the work done and head out.

Another day closer to the last Prime HD unit to be given away. Is today going to be the lucky day for one of us?
One thing to note when reading these forums is to make sure and "filter" the reviews through the prism of knowledge that we are a bunch of OCD nutcases who hyperanalyze any minute differences in order to have stuff to talk about here.... Eitanaltman

Hello Chosun Juan!
It is raining today in Penns Woods.
If you have insomnia imagine raindrops on your window pane or hide your head under the counterpane above your bed and imagine someone dancing on the ceiling!
