Microsoft's problem in a nutshell

.
When you need a special webpage to show customers how to open the goddamn box your product comes in, you're missing the point of the whole "user friendly" idea.

    Of course. PCs and Microsoft are what pay the bills around here. If they actually took my advice, I'd be out of a job.

    Well, we don't need none of that shit, the job market is fucked-up enough as it is, we can't lose you to the ranks of the under and un-employed. You gotta keep plugging away, with those low-rent MS programs, to keep us dorks & losers with our heads above water, when it comes to 'puters.

    Any luck with that Quicken, btw?

    Yes, she's nagging.

    Whatta shock, huh.

    Feel free to embed it with nagging pop-ups and subversive worms and anything that might give her a REAL stroke this time, instead of a mere TIA, dammit.

    With a TIA, she never ONCE lost the power of speech, in other words.

    Quickbooks, not Quicken. I think you can download a starter version of Quicken for free.

    I thought there was a copy down at work, but I can't find it. I've got an old one she can have, but it's OLD - I think it was made for Windows 3.1 or something like that. Would probably make XP choke - I'm not about to install it and find out.

    Trouble is, Quickbooks is small business - the place I work employs well over 100 people. Quickbooks wouldn't work for us - too small-time. Our accounting software runs on a server, not a stand-alone PC, so it wouldn't do her any good even if I could get a copy.

    Ahhhh, well, it was worth a shot.

    Fuck 'er.

    Actually, no, don't. You don't EVER want to go there --- more traffic's been through there than the Jersey Turnpike.
