Let me say this: Today is a different day from yesterday (and the day before) and so far it's been pretty good! (NO stress, woohoo) :D

Hey, I'd rather deal with fussy drivers than this customer below!

Customer: When are you open?
Me: We are open everyday, 24 hours a day. :)
Customer: Are you open on weekends?
Me: Yes, we are open every single day including weekends.:rolleyes:
Customer: Oh! So your open on weekends, right? :confused:
Me: Yes, *sigh*:rolleyes:, WE.... are "OPEN".... EV....ER...Y...DAY!, EVEN on the weekend!!! (trying not to lose it here)
Customer: Oh ok, I thought you guys weren't open on weekends. :)

And that was the end of that call, but if she would have asked me anything else I would have lost it! :D

Besides some frustrating customers my day is good. :)

well, it it aint just the drivers, it started after SP1 ****ed up all of windows "c:\windows\system32\config\system is missing or damaged, please insert the Windows XP CD-ROM and press r to repare at the first screen (or something like that)" well, did that, seems the windows repair needs to be able to start windows to repair it? what the fuk? Why would i want to repair windows if it were able to start up? so i replaced the damaged file with a back-up under dos, which is in the same directory called system.old? why windows doesnt just use that when it discovers the correct one is damaged I wouldnt know. So, starting up windows, guess what? "Setup is starting, preparing to repaire windows, please insert the Windows XP SP1 cd." never heard of the SP1 cd and certainly dont have it.
So, after half an hour or so I finally convince windows to use the original XP cd, takes 45 minutes to fix that damn program, Windows starts up. Next problem: Log in screen "please click your user to start windows, after you have started for the first time you can create extra users bladibladibla" but there's no user to click on, restarting in save mode, all is going well and guess what, there's my user, so i think, must have been some sort of error, restart windows in normal mode and again, no user to log in with, restart windows again in safe mode, lot of work trying to get internet to work, install TweakXP and set it up to automatically log in (i've waisted 4 hours of my life by now), finally it works. But none of the drivers are installed, so i install the nVidiot drivers, restart my computer, it hangs at the first windows screen with the progress bar, restart, hangs again, and again, finally restart with safe mode, and repeat the process, etc, etc, etc, now i've already waisted 6 hours of my life and gonna spend a few more, it's time for my favourite command: "format c:"

You know, I had that same problem. No user to click on to log in. Damn you Bill! Hmm, come to think of it, it was caused by my GF2 GTS drivers! :rolleyes:

Ok, my day just got a lot worse. :(

So that's it, 3 days of bad news in a row. Only this time I have no control over the situation, I can only pray. :(

I can't take it anymore, I don't know if I will be able to handle anymore bad news. Arg!!!

I hope it is not that insane chick again. If it is Me and a few others may need to go on a road trip, and take her out. :mad:

Ok, looks like I need to say what's up cause you guys are way off track with this one, hehe. :D

It's about my grandma, her heart is failing and my dad once again left in a mad rush to go see her. She's been off and on for a few months now and she's only getting worse.

So that is what's troubling me today. :(

Sorry bout your Grandma.

When it rains it pours. Zokes are you sure you are not a stress experiment? Best wishes to you, and if there is anything we can do, just let us know.

Everyone has sad news. :(


Best wishes to all. To help, I suggest watching Zokes avatar for a while. It always ma....Bouncy Bouncy...

Turns out my grandmas medication was slowing her heart rate a lot so they took her off those and transferred her to another hospital and she's doing slightly better, which to me is good news. (just got home and checked my messages)

Thank you all for being so supportive. :)

BTW, boobies are very comforting, wether your just watching them bounce (note the very obvious avatar) or wether some hottie shoves them in your face! :p
