I'm for the first time ever going to f disk my computer.

Don't laugh. :P

I'm kinda nervous.

Something's I'm comfy with doing - hardware and OS that are evil stuff - not so much.

Yes - I - broke it.

Stop laughing. :P

So the lovely Atnevon will be walking me through this via telecommunications.

Should all go as planned, you will only see me flicker and poof, then return like magic! Like nothing ever happened.

Should all go not as planned - weeeeeeeeeeeeeeellll - ermmm well....

I have the latest Ubuntu. :D

oO. I see him there!

I wonder what his email screener is going to say when they see that? Something tells me this could get interesting ;)

Good job on a format and re-partition well done! You are now an honorary geek :)

Oh and here I missed it. Next time warn me ahead of time and I'll do a ritual sacrifice of something or another to ensure some stability.
And if all else fails, call in the thousand tribes of hummus....they may not fix much but are great at computer-smashing parties.

( yes yes, this was edited for content as apparently it was a little TOO un-nerving, even for the darkness among us *evil cackle* but no it wasn't a joke. )

Thanks! :D


@ starphoenixkoroias

While I appreciate the gesture, it's thoughtful - but - there will be no animals sacrificed on my behalf. Not nice :( *pouts* :(

Edit to add: I see you edited your post - that was kind of you starphoenixkoroias. Thank you!

I like Hummus though! :D

We could always sacrifice the spirit of a politician to compensate for the general suffering of mankind.

You mentioned ubuntu, i tried it and thought "meh" not for me.

But it's good to see that Atnevon is able to talk someone trough the installation process. Dual boot with Gates of Vista?
Unauthorized Copying is not only forbidden, but will prey upon your conscience, spoil your sleep, destroy your complexion, and eventually will wind up turning you into the kind of person who drinks methylated spirits out of a bottle hidden in a brown paper bag, and who lives under bridges, burps noxiously, and prays day and night for release from the unsupportable burden their life has become. We thought you'd appreciate the warning.
Originally from a Neil Gaiman cd, so i might suffer from all the things mentioned above.

As Sanctuary put it best, I do have to say that I wish all of the people I troubleshoot with every day were like her. It would definitely be a better world out there :)

Oh yes I agree Politicians are acceptable sacrifices. :D

Why didn't you like Ubuntu?

He is - he talked me through it on the phone - with issues and all - step by step and - it was my very first time. :D He done good! It's very easy. I was sort of shocked at just how easy it was.

HAHA Thankfully - no Vista. XP :wizard: I mention Vista cause - well - it's the devil.



@Atnevon


They only have to really do one thing - learn how to read LOL. But seriously - it was really just logic's and reading. Though I did have something they didn't have - you - in case I did something incredibly stupid.

It was really nice that you let me pick what I thought I should do and then tell me yes (and why) or no (and why).

I really appreciate all your patience with me. Thank you!!!

Is that what that smell was? And here I thought it was a pot of coffee.
Speaking of which ..... *swipes all the coffee you hid in your neighbors house* *cackle* :ph34r:

We don't accept politician sacrifices in Hell. We made them, why do we want them back????

Vista is not the devil, it is a Catholic priest in disguise. Can't you see the porn behind it?

Now - new laptops - now fighting with Vista. Now I'm in real hell.


@Shatterskulls

That's because I'm plain, average Jane. Besides - no one wants to see me. You really want to see my puppy!! :D


@starphoenixkoroias

oh you betcha there was coffee involved!! Though what you probably smelt was me having a melt down LOL

Vista is a priest! This explains a lot.

LO l@ politicians.

Speaking as someone that has been lucky enough to see a picture of Sanctuary... I have to say that this is about as far from the truth as it gets. I know I'll probably make her blush bright enough to see the glow from where I sit (across the lake), but I have to say that she is stunningly pretty.

'Plain Jane', at least for me, is more of a statement about personality than about looks though, and I have to say that on that front as well, she's about as beautiful as it gets.

So... plain Jane? No. Delightfully enchanting? Yes :)

*hides*

Oh... and yes, post more puppy pictures!!! She's pretty too :)

and he's just trying to get onto the eat list again. pffttt. I'm not falling for that. I'm onto you!

*hides face*

Although he is right on one thing - the puppy Taiya is quite beautiful! :D

Doh! My plot has been foiled. What can I say? It was nice and warm and cozy in there. Can you blame me for wanting to go back?

I did mean what I said though. No need to hide :)

*shakes head sadly*

1.) No fair passing off the hives from that imitation coffee I snuck into your house as blushing! Besides, that weird scalded look is pretty funny.

2.) Hmm...if Atnevon is blind, that's your fault Sanct. It was your picture that did him in! :D

3.) The puppy is best displayed on a oiled and heated surface. I can teach it to tap dance at 360 degrees :P

4.) Exchanges like this are fun at times.

5.) Plot? What plot? You dug it yourself <_<

6.) *greases up the wok* :lol:

oh you betcha there was coffee involved!! Though what you probably smelt was me having a melt down LOL

Vista is a priest! This explains a lot.

LO l@ politicians.


I was wondering why you tasted so good...you bathe in coffee! I'm hiring my own mercenary crew to take out the world coffee supply and bury it in my bunker now.

Of course Vista is a priest. The original name of it was Longhorn. And Longhorn is an Archbishop in the Holy Church of the Bouncing Divinity.
Of course I don't have any control of that. Hell doesn't associate with priests. But I admit they do burn better than most.

As far as politicians are concerned, well... remember, I get to run your government another four years though my politicians.

Oh yeah....and you still have yet to go "missing". Maybe I'll have to hire Waldo and have him make you go missing a few days :ph34r:
