i'm bi now... (uhg)

Well, I did the dirty deed and installed Windows on my computer. I can't say I'm happy about it, actually I have this awful "unfaithful lover" feeling, like Linux did all it could to keep me and it just wasn't enough. Sigh.

I'd forgotten how much Windows really sucks. I mean, installation took like two hours once I got all my setup stuff done and service packs handled. It formats, you restart, it installs the setup files, you restart, it runs setup, you restart, you change something little and stupid, you restart... the process continues. Not happy. Then it took way too much effort to get my zip drive configured, George showed me how to do that in Linux (it involves pasting two lines of text in a file, no restart needed) then to get it done in Win 2K we had to download patches and go through all this crap. Arg.

Plus, I had to click "agree" to all their stupid licence agreements, I probably just signed away my first born child or something. They asked who I was and I didn't feel like giving my real name so I said I was Osama Bin Laden. Hey, if you're gonna run an evil OS, you might as well be evil, huh? Let's see if the FBI comes after me. My mom's gonna kill me if she sees my startup screen, "This product is registered to Osama Bin Laden, The Taliban Regime". Ha!

But anyway, Linux knows me once again as Spacefem, it's still happy over on its 15G of hard drive space (does that blow your mind? I never did fill up my 6G in my old computer, now I have enough to give two OS's 15G each.) Linux seems okay with sharing, but it's that lover thing, it shouldn't have to share, you know?

In other news, I think I patched things up with Walter. He, Linsey & George were all over last night, configuring LILO and watching Star Trek Enterprise. It was nice, I forgot how it was to hang out with multiple friends. Sure, they're all weird and quirky, but maybe that's why I get along with them, because I'm pretty damn flawed myself.

Oh hey, my screensaver still doesn't work in Linux :) Maybe it's not such a great lover after all.
