Top 10 Reasons Why E-Mail is Like a Male Reproductive Organ:
- Those who have it would be devastated if it were ever cut off.
- Those who have it think that those who don't are somehow inferior.
- Those who don't have it think it's not worth the fuss that those who have it make about it.
- Many of those who don't have it would like to try it (e-mail envy).
- It's more fun when it's up, but this makes it hard to get any real work done.
- In the distant past, its only purpose was to transmit information vital to the survival of the species.
- If you don't apply the appropriate measures, it can spread viruses.
- If you use it too much, you'll find it becomes more and more difficult to think coherently.
- We attach an importance to it that is far greater than its actual size and influence warrant.
- If you're not careful what you do with it, it can get you into a lot of trouble.
There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.
When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"
He works for Microsoft, writing error messages
Upgrading to Wife 1.0
Last year a friend of mine upgraded from Girlfriend 4.0 to Wife 1.0 and found that it's a memory hog leaving few system resources for other applications.
He is also now noticing the Wife 1.0 is also spawning Child-processes which are further consuming valuable resources.
No mention of this particular phenomenon was included in the product documentation, though other users have informed me that this is to be expected due to the nature of the application.
Not only that, Wife 1.0 installs itself so that it is always launched at system initialization where it can monitor all other system activity.
Some applications such as Poker Night 10.3 , Bachelor Party 2.5, and Pub Night 7.0 are no longer able to run on the system at all, causing the system to lockup when launched (even though the apps worked fine before).
Wife 1.0 provides no installation options. Thus, the installation of undesired plug-ins such as Mother-in-law 55.8 and the Brother-in-law Beta is unavoidable.
Also, system performance seems to diminish with each passing day.
Some features my friend would like to see in the upcoming Wife 2.0:
- A "don't remind me again" button.
- Minimize button.
- Ability to delete the "headache" file
- An install feature that provides an option to uninstall 2.0 versions without loss of other system resources.
- An option to run the network driver in "promiscuous mode" allowing the system's Hardware Probe feature to be much more useful/effective.
I myself wish I had decided to avoid all of the headaches associated with Wife 1.0 by sticking with Girlfriend 3.0 Even here, however, I have found many problems.
Apparently you cannot install Girlfriend 4.0 on top of girlfriend 3.0. You must uninstall Girlfriend 3.0 first; otherwise the two versions of Girlfriend will have conflicts over shared use of the I/O port.
Other users have told me that this is a long-standing problem that I should have been aware of. Guess that explains what happened to versions 1 and 2.
To make matters worse, the uninstall program for Girlfriend 3.0 doesn't work very well, leaving undesirable traces of the application in the system.
Another identified problem is that all versions of Girlfriend have annoying little messages about the advantages of upgrading to Wife 1.0!
All users should be aware that 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 MS Money files before doing the uninstall itself.
Once that happens, Mistress 1.1 won't install and you will get an "insufficient resources" error message.
To avoid the aforementioned bug, try installing Mistress 1.1 on a different system and " never" run any file transfer applications (such as Laplink) between the two systems.
FYI: Don't even think about a shared directory!!!
