Subj:     Upgrading Girlfriend 1.0 to Wife 1.0 (S419)
          From: CHRISDADDYG on 2/2/2005

 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 initializa-
 tion where it can monitor all other system activity.  He's
 finding that some applications such as PokerNight 10.3, Beer-
 Bash 2.5,and PubNight 7.0 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 diminishwith each passing

 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 Girl-
 friend 2.0 on top of Girlfriend 1.0.  You must uninstall Girl-
 friend 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 conficts 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 does
 not 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

Second version
Subj:     Tech Support for GirlFriend x.x
          From: Octagon999 on 97-12-09

 Dear Bob in Tech Support,

 I'm currently running the latest version of GirlFriend and
 I've been having some problems lately.  I've been running
 the same version of DrinkingBuddies 1.0 forever, as my
 primary application, and all the GirlFriend releases I've
 tried have always conflicted with it.

 I hear that DrinkingBuddies won't crash if GirlFriend is
 run in background mode and the sound is turned off.  But
 I'm embarrassed to say I can't find the switch to turn the
 sound off.  I just run them seperately, and it works okay.
 GirlFriend also seems to have a problem co-existing with
 my Leisure 3.1 and QuietTime programs, often trying to
 abort them with some sort of timing incompatibility.

 I probably should have stayed with GirlFriend 1.0, but I
 thought I might see better performance from GirlFriend 2.0.
 After months of conflicts and other problems, I consulted
 a friend who has had experience with GirlFriend 2.0.  He
 said I probably didn't have enough cache to run GirlFriend
 2.0, and eventually it would require a Token Ring to run
 properly.  He was right - as soon as I purged my cache, it
 uninstalled itself.

 Shortly after that, I installed GirlFriend 3.0 beta.  All
 the bugs were supposed to be gone, but the first time I used
 it, it gave me a virus anyway.  I had to clean out my whole
 system and shut down for a while to re-check my hardware.

 I very cautiously upgraded to GirlFriend 4.0.  This time I
 used a SCSI probe first and also installed a virus protection
 program.  It worked okay for a while, until I discovered that
 GirlFriend 1.0 was still in my system.  I tried running
 GirlFriend 1.0 again with GirlFriend 4.0 still installed, but
 GirlFriend 4.0 has a "feature" I didn't know about that
 automatically detects the presence of any other version of
 GirlFriend and communicates with it in the background in some
 way, which results in the immediate removal of both versions.

 The version I have now works pretty well, but there are still
 some problems.  Like all versions of GirlFriend, it is
 written in some obscure language I can't understand, much
 less reprogram.  Frankly I think there is too much attention
 paid to the look and feel rather than the desired functionality.
 Also, to get the best connections with your hardware, you
 usually have to use gold-plated contacts, which is very
 expensive.  And I've never liked how GirlFriend is totally
 "object-oriented", as that interface is sometimes cumbersome
 and even counter-intuitive.

 A year ago, a friend of mine upgraded his version of Girl-
 Friend to GirlFriendPlus 1.1, which is a Terminate and Stay
 Resident version of GirlFriend.  To his dismay, however, he
 discovered that GirlFriendPlus 1.1 expires within a year of
 the upgrade, if you don't upgrade AGAIN to Fiancee 1.0.  So
 he did, but soon after that, he had to upgrade YET AGAIN to
 Wife 1.0, which he describes as a HUGE resource hog.

 It has taken up all his space, so he can't load anything
 else.  In fact, it has even automatically deleted several
 of his other programs to make room for itself, not the least
 of which was DrinkingBuddies 1.0, which used to be one of
 his favorite applications, as well.  This is particularly
 disturbing to me, as we used to run DrinkingBuddies 1.0 on
 a network with several of our mutual friends, and now he
 can't even connect anymore!

 He told me that one of the primary reasons he decided to go
 with Wife 1.0 was because it came bundled with FreeSexPlus,
 which sounded great.  Well, it turns out the resource
 allocation module of Wife 1.0 sometimes inexplicably
 prohibits access to FreeSexPlus, particularly when he
 starts the new Plug-Ins he wanted to try.  Also, for no
 apparent reason, the OralSex 1.0 module that worked fine
 in his previous versions of GirlFriendPlus and Fiancee,
 stopped working the instant the upgrade to Wife 1.0 finished

 On top of that, Wife 1.0 must be running on a well warmed-
 up system before he can do anything with the FreeSexPlus
 module.  This warming up process requires him to run an
 antiquated version of ForePlay Beta, which has an
 agonizingly slow interface, and which has an unfortunate
 tendency to crash, requiring a cold reboot to his system.
 The real insult to injury however, is that even though he
 did not ask for it, Wife 1.0 came embedded with MotherInLaw
 2.0, which has an irritating automatic pop-up feature he
 can't turn off.

 I told him to try installing Mistress 1.0 (which I had
 heard works great in such situations), but he said he heard
 if you try to run it without first uninstalling Wife 1.0,
 Wife 1.0 will delete all of your MSMoney files before doing
 an uninstall of itself.  Then Mistress 1.0 won't install
 anyway because of insufficient resources.

 Please help me Bob, I don't know what to do.  Since the
 initial release, I have had nothing but problems.

 I've heard that I would really like the CoolGirlFriend 1.0
 Deluxe Upgrade (which is supposed to come bundled with a
 completely functioning version of FreeSexDeluxe), but that
 release is no where to be found - not even the Beta version!
 That release is also supposed to come with it's own resource
 management module seamlessly layered in, so it won't
 conflict with any of my other programs (barring previous
 versions of GirlFriend, which I would happily delete!).

 Please advise.

Subj:     I've Got An AOL Wife (S25)
          From: ArmaDillow on 97-07-14

 So here I sit, in all my glory...
    lend me an ear,and I'll tell ya a story...
 I once had a wife, all warm and cuddly;
    then came AOL, and it all turned ugly!
 Now there she sits for hours on end...
    don't care where I'm goin, or where I have been.
 I could be home, or I could be gone...
    she really don't care, as long as she's on...
   (line, that is)
 After work she rushes home...I guess I shouldn't be
    pissed... but its not to see me, its to see what
    she's missed!
 To say Hi to her buddies, who bout live in that room...
    when this place needs a mop...and could sure use
    a broom!
 So I'll just drink me a beer, and watch some TV,
    and wonder just why she's not talkin to me!
 I sit here each day-GOD I NEED A LIFE-
    but that's how it is with an AOL wife...
 I sat here and pondered just what I might do...
    Hell, I got a screen name-now I'm online TOO!!!!

Subj:     Silicon Valley Lingo (S32)
          From: vcarlew on 97-09-10

 You can't be professionally cool if you're using outdated
 jargon.  Here's the latest from the corporate and Silicon
 Valley jungles.

 "percussive maintenance"
 The fine art of whacking the stuffing out of a device to
 get it working.

 "prairie dogging"
 In companies where everyone has a cubicle -- something
 happens and everyone pops up to look.

 "blowing your buffer"
 Losing your train of thought.

 "yuppie food coupons"
 Twenty dollar bills from an ATM.

 "square headed girlfriend" (or boyfriend)
 Your computer.

 Manuals and documentation.

 Concealed intimate relationship, as in, "This is Dale,

 Putting up emotional shields (from the retracting armor
 that covers the batmobile), as in, "She started talking
 marriage and he started batmobiling."

 Afflicts those with vibrating pagers characterized by
 sudden spasms, goofy facial expressions and loss of
 speech and voluntary muscle coordination.

 When a technology is overtaken in the market by inferior
 but better marketed competition, as in, "Microsoft
 betamaxed Apple right out of the market."

 A WWW site that never changes.

 "high dome"
 Egghead, scientist, PhD.

 "Elvis year"
 The peak year of popularity, as in, "1993 was Barney the
 Dinosaur's Elvis year."

 Fast food joints, strip malls, sub-divisions, as in,
 "We were so lost in generica that we couldn't remember
 what city we were passing through."

 Annoying but you can't stop watching, e.g. the O.J. trial.

 The physical world (as opposed to the virtual), also
 "carbon community", "facetime", "F2F", "RL."

 "siliwood" also "hollywired"
 The coming convergence of movies, interactive TV
 and computers.

 "world wide wait"

Subj:     Upgrading Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 (S221)
          From: gheckman on 4/20/2001

 Dear Tech Support:
 Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and
 noticed the new program began making unexpected changes to
 the accounting modules-limiting access to flower and jewelry
 applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend
 5.0.  In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable
 programs, such as Romance 9.9 but installed undesirable
 programs such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0   Conversationion 8.0
 no longer runs and HouseCleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.
 I've tried running Nagging 2.3 to fix these problems, but to
 no avail.

(Signed) Desperate

 Dear Desperate,
 Keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package,
 while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.  Try to enter the
 command:  C:/I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and install Tears 6.2.
 Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications:
 Guilty 3.0 and Flowers 7.0.  But remember, overuse can cause
 Husband 1.0 to default to GrumpySilence 2.5, Happyhour 7.0
 or Beer 6.1.   Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will
 create "Snoring Loudly" wave files.  DO NOT install Mother-
 InLaw 1.0 or attempt reinstall another Boyfriend program.
 These are not supported applications and will crash Husband

 In Summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have
 limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly.
 Consider buying additional software to improve performance.
 I personally recommend HotFood 3.0 and Lingerie 5.3.

Subj:     Husband Gets A Computer (S44)
         From: humorlist-digest V1 #264 on 97-12-01

 To my darling husband,

 I'm sending you this letter in a bogus software company
 envelope so you'll be sure to read it.  Please forgive the
 deception, but I thought you should know what's been going
 on since your computer entered our lives two years ago.

 The children are doing well. Tommy is 7 now and is a bright,
 handsome boy.  He has developed quite an interest in the
 arts.  He drew a family portrait for a school project.  All
 the figures were good but yours was excellent!!.  The chair
 and back of your head are very realistic.  You would be
 proud of him.  Little Jennifer turned 3 in September.  She
 looks a lot like you did at that age.  She is an attractive
 child and quite smart.  She still remembers that you spent
 the whole afternoon with us on her birthday.  What a grand
 day for Jen despite the fact that it was stormy and the
 electricity was out.

 I am doing well.  I went blond about a year ago and was
 delighted to discover that it really was more fun.  Lars,
 I mean Mr. Swensen, the department head, has taken an
 interest in my career and has become a good friend to us

 I discovered that the household chores are much easier
 since I realized that you didn't mind being vacuumed and
 that the feather duster made you sneeze.  The house is in
 good shape.  I had the living room painted last spring.
 I'm not sure if you noticed it.  I asked the painters to
 cut air holes in the drop cloths so you wouldn't be

 Well dear, I must be going.  Uncle Lars, Mr. Swensen, I
 mean, is taking us all on a ski trip and there is much
 packing to do.  I've hired a house-keeper to take care
 of things while we are away.  She'll keep things in
 order, fill your coffee cup and bring your meals to the
 computer room just the way you like it.

 I hope you and the computer have a lovely time while we
 are gone.  Tommy, Jen and I think of you often.  Try to
 remember us while your disks are booting.

 Love, Mary
