Unhappy would like to trade my wife

I am looking to trade my wife for one that understands the webmaster life. I am looking for one that will not call my name everytime i am in my computer room or ask me if she can check her e mail when i am in the middle of writing some killer copy.
If you have any ideas please send me an e mail

Uh-oh. Mistake - never, never, I repeat NEVER install Wife 1.0 !!!!!

I just got to Girlfriend 8.0 and had to uninstall due to daily crashes. (almost had to wipe the whole dang HD!)

Well, I do have a tech note about dealing with Wife 1.0 (since you are now stuck with it), let me know if you need it.

Put your partner's picture on your web site, as I have done here: http://www.diet4women.com/

(she is the one at the top left of the page in the logo area, not the one on the book cover!)

When you are called away from the computer, just reply, I am just tidying up your picture. Works like a charm http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Just remember that wives are not the only ones who do this kind of thing. The male model, known as Husband 1.0, is just as bad. He says nothing until I am in the middle of doing some research for a book I am writing or as soons as I start looking at the weblogs.

Well, Wife 1.0 has a number of known problems , most notably Pre MonthlyCheck Syndrome (commonly referred to as P.M.S.). I cured this problem by installing the latest model, Wife 2.0. She came complete with her own computer and all the accessories. Of course you can never get rid of version 1.0. Even a low level format doesn't remove it completely. But life is much better with 2.0

Cool

While we are on the subject, I am looking for a copy of GirlFriend 9.0. There are no new copies available, so I am sure I will have to find a used one, preferrably not too used, though.

So if you have an old copy laying around, let me know. Manuals not needed, I can install/anger/run-off this program just fine without them.

8.0 was such a mess, I am hoping 9.0 will work more seamlessly with my other systems and functions. I got a lot of GPFs (General Partnership Faults) with 8.0 while running Drunken Boys Night 3.0 and Sunday Football 5.0. CloseFriendWithShortSkirt 4.0 completely locked up the system. Any known problems with GirlFriend 9.0?

Ok, with the help of some friends at MIT, we've built a code that will handle Wife 1.0.......but be warned, it's a pretty drastic measure.

'Set Underline Style for Beheading
LuckyHead.Style.textDivorceUnderline= True
'Set color style to blue
'Seed Random wife generator (for truly random spins)
Randomize
'Display your Coin Stack
Image.src ="c:\Virtual Interruptus Redundantly Until Snapola(VIRUS)
'Configure and Open Multimedia {L=long; A=awaited; W=whisk; E=entirely; R=removed (LAWYER)**
MMCourt.Notify= True
MMCourt.Wait= True (3 Months)
MMControl.Shareable= False
MMControl.DeviceType= "Wave byeBye"
MMControl.Command= "Open"
'Use GetProperty function to determine what you want first
'Hide $$ Value
'Lucky 7" hyperlink to wife 2.0
Result.innerPeace= "Win: Get Property _


Using this code will send you to the Post Oppression Orphanage Respite, otherwise known as the POOR HOUSE. So use it wisely....

Hope this helps....

My two cents - Single.exe has a dull enough interface to warrant avoiding it completely. Stay away from it if you can.
