“Hello, a user would like access to XLS Viewer.”
“They have Excel.”
“They need access to XLS Viewer.”
“They have Excel.”
“Yes, but they’ve requested access to XLS Viewer…”
“OK, they can have it. But we have an updated version. it’s called Excel.”

I’ve just spent two evenings battling with Windows 8. What an awful, awful operating system it is to support and repair.

Just installed the Alpha 3 version of the next generation of Canonical’s wonder OS.
And all I can say is they’ve got a bloody long way to go before I’ll let it near my computer.
What’s with the theme being ignored? Why does Gnome look like it did in Red Hat back in 2000? And the nasty glitchy shit on the dialogs and menus each time they’re opened? It’s like someone’s de-tuned a television. Still, at least it installed – on the second time of asking.
And the universal App Menu? Ahahahaha, do fuck off. I thought we’d seen the last of FULL SCREEN APPS after Windows 3 was launched.

I have some kind of lurgy. It involves a damnable sore throat, which in turn is covered with ulcers. It’s all very nice. In fact even nicer is when one of the bloody things bursts. Like the big one did.
Any doctors out there wanna take a punt at what it is?
People have hummed and harred and said I should probably be off work, but hell, I just know I’d be missed terribly, and besides I’d go stir crazy if I didn’t go in. For example, it’s nice for one to enjoy some kind of interaction or banter with the one’s work colleagues. Of course, the only thing you get from a bunch of computer geeks is “Morning”, followed eight hours later by “Bye”. Obviously, none of them ever looks you in the eye when talking to you, but it is nice that both words are said in an almost friendly fashion.
