I decree that there should not be any more modification of Windows by system manufacturers - this includes the fucking annoying practice of Dell of limiting their Windows CDs to only be used on Dell machines, based on the BIOS I think. I spent an hour this morning trying to fix a computer that wouldn't finish booting by locating a copy of the Scanreg program, because for some reason it doesn't seem to be on the HP Vectra machine that was broken, not on the boot disk I created, but finally found on the Dell Win 98 CD. Of course, I couldn't just put the CD in the machine and run the program. Oh, no! Its an HP and I'm trying to run a Dell CD on it!! The world is ending!!!! So I had to come back to my desk, copy the one fucking program to a floppy, take that back over and then run it from the disk. Of course, it worked like I knew it would. But seriously, an hour? So gay.

yes, gay. not homosexual. just gay. i use gay, technically, as a derogatory term, but not actually towards gay people, if that makes any sense. it doesn't bother me because i know i'm not anti-gay or anything. its something i picked up and i use it a lot. thats a terrible explanation but hopefully it gets the point across.
