box downtime
Today (monday june 18) was gone for about 30 minutes. During a software upgrade a very important library got broken because of which some programs could not start anymore. So I took the box down to fix it... and now it works...
so sorry for the inconvenience if you could not visit the site for 30 minutes (if you realy missed it I think you should get a life)

I bought mine from that little guy on a cloud in the skies, can't recall his name on the moment, I thought something with a "G" .... }-)

But I did notice that the forum and the site were down, but no need to say sorry. Nevertheless, nice you did it !

Really, I bought mine from this guy AND he gave me a discount.
I think his name was Lucifer or something.

Well nowadays everyone has to go for Microsoft LifeMe. Pretty soon after they released it, all the latest versions of the necessary programs (like Walking2000, TalkingMe, Learning2001) would only run on LifeMe.

But what they don't tell you is that LifeMe will only run on an Intel Body Inside at 2000GHz or above, and requires you to install DirectBrain 8.3a. You may, of course, then have to install patches 8.3b then 8.4 to stop your brain crashing every 5 minutes. This can be annoying because when you 'come to' after a DirectBrain crash, your desktop is rearranged. This is as yet unexplained by Microsoft.

The upgrade also means that if you have any problems with older programs (such as Thinking3.11 for Workgroups - I mean, who ever does that any more), you get no support from manufacturers; they just say that the problems arise from the latest version of DirectBrain, which is not yet supported by said manufacturer.

Ho hum.

If you want to be really radical - to 'think different,' as it were - go for an Apple iLife. They are extremely stable, fast and reliable lives. Unfortunately only a tiny percentage of people own iLives and so the many programs are not supported. You would not be able to Walk2000, TalkMe, Learn2001 or even FuckNT in the same way as everyone else. Which sometimes can be embarrassing (though some people do like to do things differently).

I'll try LifeXP when it comes out, together with BodyXP.
Or maybe RedHat Life, or SuSe Life.

We might be taking this metaphor a bit to far...
