Today's Mantra

I will not rant about Windows, I will not rant about Windows, I will not rant about motherf*cking Windows....

Okay, not just today's. For the past few days I've been engaged in a knock-down-drag-out with that infernal operating system, trying (probably in vain) to get the damned thing to work properly. Again. It's a bit more than an uphill battle; it's more of a St George versus the dragon sorta thing, and so far I'm losing. Several reinstalls later, and key components aren't working, and I've just had to go through the laborious, exasperating process of trying to repair the entire OS from the ground up, and I'm willing to bet that won't work. I swear, if I have to format my hard-drive, I'll probably have to demolish some perfectly innocent appliances in response. Ugh. As Norm Peterson once said of women, Windows: can't live with 'em, pass the beer nuts.

Which leads me to think Dante was wrong. He had no idea what the Gates of Hell were really all about.

UPDATE: Four hours later, and still no progress. Every single recommendation from Microtoss and various fora on the net have yielded SQUAT. My glee must be positively palpable.

UPPERDATE: M'kay, that last failure tears it: I'm drinkin' early today. Now where are those perfectly innocent appliances....

DOWNERDATE: Urge to kill rising....

dante unleashed hell on generations of students with his trilogy, curiously enuf his "hell" was funnier than his paradise - man, paradise with beatrice unlimited is hell...

p.s. the word verification now sounds like rehab - pretty appropriate for the moment huh?!
