Upgrade from Boyfriend 1.0 to Husband 1.0

Posted by cotojo on November 15, 2007

Last year a friend of mine upgraded from BoyFriend 1.0 to Husband 1.0 and found that it’s a memory hog, leaving very little system resources available for other applications.

She is now noticing that Husband 1.0 is also spawning Child Processors which are further consuming valuable resources. No mention of this particular phenomena was included in the product brochure or the documentation, though other users have informed her that this is to be expected due to the nature of the application.

Not only that, Husband 1.0 installs itself such, that it is always launched at system initialization, where it can monitor all other system activity. She’s finding that some applications such as SpendingSpree 2.4, GirlsNight 3.5 and CocktailNight 7.0 are no longer able to run in the system at all, crashing the system when selected (even though they always worked fine before).

During installation, Husband 1.0 provides no option as to the installation of undesired Plug-ins such as MotherInLaw 5.8 and BrotherInLaw Beta release. Also, system performance seems to diminish with each passing day.

Some features she’d like to see in the upcoming Husband 2.0 include:

1. A “Yes I’ll cook, clean etc.” button.
2. An install shield feature that allows Husband 2.0 be installed with the option to uninstall at anytime without the loss of cache and other system resources.

I myself decided to avoid the headache associated with Husband 1.0 by sticking with BoyFriend 2.0. Even here, however, I found many problems.

Apparently you cannot install BoyFriend 2.0 on top of BoyFriend 1.0; each program begins damaging the other. You must uninstall BoyFriend 1.0 first. Other users say this is a long standing bug that I should have known about. You’d think they would have fixed such a stupid bug by now! To make matters worse, the uninstall program for BoyFriend 1.0 doesn’t work very well, leaving undesirable traces of the application in the system.

Another thing–all versions of BoyFriend 1.0 continually popup little annoying messages about the advantages of upgrading to Husband 1.0.

Bug Warning
Husband 1.0 has an undocumented bug. If you try to install Lover 1.1 before uninstalling Husband 1.0, Husband 1.0 will delete MS Clothing allowance files, before doing the uninstall himself.

More applications that won’t run with Husband 1.0 include Chippendale 2.0, Netballwatching 3.5, Suremoreshoes 6.0, and Cleanup 4.3.

Applications that run very well with Husband 1.0, however, include Bummingaround 1.0, Pubnight 2.3, Golfing 2.7, Pokernight 5.3, and Wanderingeyes 4.9.

I’m a Hufflepuff – It’s Official

Posted by cotojo on November 15, 2007

I have been tagged by Marzie, author of Mariuca for a two part meme. Marzie was tagged by Trinity for the first one and FL Sam for the second.
Part one is the Sorting Hat Test which determines which Hogwarts House I belong to……..Harry Potter strikes again!!  What does he have in store for me? 
I tremble, waiting for the Hat to shout……Hufflepuff – sounds like it would be nice with double cream and a pot of tea 🙂

Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

Marzie also tagged me on this fairly simple meme, which was quite interesting! Here’s how it works:
Use the first letter of your name to answer each question. Must be places, names….nothing made up. You can’t use your own name for the boy/girl’s name question. If you get stuck, skip to the next one.
1 Famous Singer: Chris De Burgh
2 Four Letter Word: Clap
3 Street: Channel View
4 Colour: Crimson
5 Gifts/Present: China Ornament
6 Vehicle: Citroen C4 Coupe
7 Things in Souvenir Shop: Charm Bracelet

18 Reason for Being Late to work: Chronic Idleness

And now, I’d like to tag the following bloggers to do these 2 memes. You can pick either one or do both, whatever takes your fancy:
