Sadly, Microsoft doesn’t see the user account control system as a bug. Sigh. Still, having done tech support for Vista, and then set up and rather extensively either used or […]

From a thread regarding a speech-friendly installer for another Linux distro: There’s definitely interest. I’d even learn the process for doing that for the sole purpose of contributing. Thanks for […]
Things broke like there was no tomorrow when Vista first showed up last year. And now, Microsoft’s coming out with its first service pack for said piece of royal crapola. Now taking bets on just how sideways that one’s gonna go.
Fixing apple’s. What’s worse than fixing Apple’s mistakes? Fixing that which they already know about. For the record, I never want to get that involved with anything Apple related again. And this from a guy who’s got a well documented hatred of Microsoft. But at least their software doesn’t break everything else when you’re installing […]
Now that’s a cover up for anyone who doesn’t happen to bother reading the local news. I probably shouldn’t be irritated about it–well, or using MSN messenger either for that matter, given my already stated opinion of Microsoft. But I do. So this morning I thought I’d jump online and see what was going on. […]
Well, actually, I despise Microsoft. But Office 2007 for specific reasons. Primarily, it should not take me, who knows his way pretty much around Office products for the most part like the back of my hand, an hour and a half to figure out where the hell they put this or that setting that in […]
Proof that, after finding pieces of wireless card that have gone mysteriously astray, and after repeated phone calls to Dell techs in a rather mislead attempt to get a straight answer out of said Dell techs, I am still the master of all–well, okay, most–things Microsoft. Except Vista, which I will continue to maintain I […]
Welp, as some of you know and others of you guessed I’m sure by now, the formerly Vista and now XP computer is up and running. Well, partially. No wireless network support and there’s still a rather lengthy list of devices Windows doesn’t have drivers for. But I’m slowly piecing that together. Now, here’s why […]
And all because of a little CD HP didn’t send me. Round 1, external HD goes on the blink. Or so I thought. Turns out Windows just decided it suddenly didn’t know what it was. Well, after getting frustrated with that, I decided to go right on ahead and start following these instructions figuring, y’know–it […]
This is what happens when I can’t come up with a more creative title. But… who’s counting? Ordinarily I’d be up to my eyeballs in calls… but… thank the gods for system outages, now it’s “we’re updating, call back tomorrow”. And I get paid to just sit here and be all kinds of cute. Or… […]
New definition of ‘legal battle’, and like everything that’s trying to be redefined lately, Microsoft’s right in the middle of it. Everyone’s already heard about the suing spree Microsoft’s going on so far as piracy charges and such goes. Good luck with that, by the way, Billy. And, speaking of Billy Gates and legal battles, […]
It takes them forever to release a security update, or a fix so something like the MS blaster worm stops actually affecting people, but you go and break their DRM features, intentionally or otherwise, then watch what happens. And that, folks, is why I wish I could use linux. At least we know where their […]
Who believes Microsoft is actually a spyware company. Who’d of thunk it?
I usually don’t like posting things from sites like Slashdot, but in this case, I’ll make an acception or few because it gives me an excuse to bash Microsoft. Not that they need me to add to the pile of MS bashers, but you know… and people wouldn’t be looking to bash them senseless if […]
Call it a response to programs kinda sorta like Jabber and Trillian if you’re so inclined; I’ll just call it about goddamn time. Microsoft and Yahoo are, apparently, working on a kind of IM partnership. MSN (Windows Live, now, I guess?) Messenger and Yahoo Messenger users will be able to IM each other without having […]
