Configure this

Dear Laptop: Ok, you kinda suck. I gave you time to recover from your ordeal. Lots and lots of time. Just last week, you had two nights that I left you on so you could download the 62 Windows updates, and then install them. Why oh why did I have to wait an hour yesterday when I turned you on for you to configure updates? Didn't we do this last week? Don't you know I have things to do, and among them, a blog to write? I'm bigger than you. I can totally crush you. Or throw you against the wall. Or jump up and down on you. Stop pissing me off! Love, Von

Did it respond?? Also, is it vengeful? If so, maybe you want to lock it in the bathroom when you go to bed tonight...

The people that program Windows updates are clearly shut-ins who look forward to update time, because it provides an hour of distraction from their miserable, empty lives.

I also hate the Hard Drive Access of Mystery, where my drive starts conducting its own digital Air America operation. What's going on in there? And I don't believe your "virus database updating" cover story.

J - Good idea! That way I won't have to sleep with one eye open...
B - Sounds like our comps are related.

Give it the stinkeye. I find that works in most situations. Or shake your fist at it. That's another good one.
