    Default A laugh for you this morning

    Installing A Husband
    Dear Tech Support,

    Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed
    a distinct slowdown in overall system performance, particularly in the
    flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under
    Boyfriend 5.0.

    In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs,
    such as
    ·Romance 9.5, and
    ·Personal Attention 6.5,
    and then installed undesirable programs such as
    ·NBA 5.0,
    ·NFL 3.0, and
    ·Golf Clubs 4.1.


    Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, andHousecleaning 2.6 simply
    crashes the system.
    Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems,
    but to no avail.
    What can I do?

    Signed,
    Desperate.


    DEAR DESPERATE,

    First, keep in mind,
    Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while
    ·Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

    Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download
    Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.

    If that application works as designed, Husband1.0 should then auto-
    matically run the applications Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

    However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause
    Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or
    Beer 6.1.

    Please note that Beer 6. 1 is a very bad program that will download
    the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0.
    (It runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all
    your system resources.)

    In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program.
    These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

    In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited
    memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider
    buying additional software to improve memory and performance.

    We recommend
    ·Cooking 3.0, and
    ·Hot Lingerie 7.7.


    Good Luck, Babe.

    This is sort of related:

    Notes about Free Upgrade
    Last year a friend of mine upgraded GirlFriend 1.0 to Wife 1.0 and found that it's a memory hog leaving very little system resources for other applications.

    He is only now noticing that Wife 1.0 also is spawning Child-Processes which are further consuming valuable resources. No mention of this particular phenomena was included in the product brochure or the documentation, though other users have informed him that this is to be expected due to the nature of the application.

    Not only that, Wife 1.0 installs itself such that it is always launched at system initialization where it can monitor all other system activity. He's finding that some applications such as PokerNight 10.3, BeerBash 2.5, PubNight 7.0, and Excuses 5.0 are no longer able to run in the system at all, crashing the system when selected (even though they always worked fine before).

    At installation, Wife 1.0 provides no option as to the installation of undesired Plug-Ins such as MotherInLaw 55.8 and BrotherInLaw Beta release. Also, system performance seems to diminish with each passing day.

    Some features he'd like to see in the upcoming wife 2.0.

    * A "Don't remind me again" button
    * Minimize button
    * An install shield feature that allows Wife 2.0 be installed with the option to uninstall at anytime without the loss of cache and other system resources.
    * An option to run the network driver in promiscuous mode which would allow the systems hardware probe feature to be much more useful.

    I myself decided to avoid all of the headaches associated with Wife 1.0 by sticking with Girlfriend 2.0. Even here, however, I found many problems.

    Apparently you cannot install Girlfriend 2.0 on top of Girlfriend 1.0. You must uninstall Girlfriend 1.0 first. Other users say this is a long standing bug which I should have been aware of. Apparently the versions of Girlfriend have conflicts over shared use of the I/O port. You think they would have fixed such a stupid bug by now. To make matters worse, The uninstall program for Girlfriend 1.0 doesn't work very well leaving undesirable traces of the application in the system.

    Another thing that sucks -- all versions of Girlfriend continually popup little annoying messages about the advantages of upgrading to Wife 1.0

    ***** BUG WARNING ********
    Wife 1.0 has an undocumented bug. If you try to install Mistress 1.1 before uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney files before doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.1 will refuse to install, claiming insufficient resources.

    *** BUG WORK-AROUNDS ***************
    To avoid the above bug, try installing Mistress 1.1 on a different system and never run any file transfer applications such as Laplink 6.0. Also, beware of similar shareware applications that have been known to carry viruses that may affect Wife 1.0.

    Another solution would be to run Mistress 1.0 via a UseNet provider under an anonymous name. Here again, beware of the viruses which can accidently be downloaded from the UseNet.

    *** UPGRADE VERSION *****************
    Although advertised as being Plug'n'Play, installing the Upgrade version of Wife 1.0 results in several of the better features of Girlfriend 1.0 refusing to continue working. The supposed compatibility with Fast-Car 3.6 & Ski Holiday 6.2 is also flawed, and launching these applications results in strange noises and error messages.

    Wife 1.0 also appears to be totally incompatible with all previous versions of BEST MATE, and some users have reported that continued use of BEST MATE can lead to unwanted sharing of resources and I/O ports unless the System Agent is installed as a background task.

    *** SUMMARY *******************************
    It appears that Girlfriend 1.0 is still one of the best products on the market, especially just after installation. Though not as much fun as CASUALSHAG 63.8 for the power user, it remains relatively reliable and easy on system resources. The timeout feature of Girlfriend is the major problem, and in severe cases can force the user to upgrade to Wife 1.0 with dire consequences on system health.

    Far from stealing, Google it and take your pick from thousands of sites. These two have been around for awhile.

    Both were hilarous. BTW, I already copied and pasted them to my c:\e-mail_ gag_file.txt

    Do I have to return to goal because I didn't say "May I?"
