Windows 98

Jan. 2nd, 2006 | 12:34 am

I'm setting up an old PC for the kids, running Windows 98. whee! This probably isn't a win98 problem specifically, but why the fucking fuck do I need the original CD to uninstall office 98? There are ways around it, but why do I need a way around it?

Oh for the times of yore

At times like this I want to be 12 again, when being a bonehead usually involved a mixture of parental scolding, amusing your mates, and sometimes a little pain thrown in for good measure. The ones where you got hurt were usually the most amusing. As you get older, though, bonehead moves can get bigger and grander. They start costing your time and your money. As a kid all you have is time, and it's usually not your money. No matter the age though, you still end up amusing your mates. Two lessons I learned tonight:

  • When your mom told you not to defrost the fridge with a hammer and screwdriver, she actually had a good reason for it.
  • No matter how pitiful your plight seems when you're buying a refrigerator at WalMart at midnight, it's probably better than the guy who pulls into the lot with his engine on fire.

If you haven't read "America: The Book", you definately have to give it a try. It's gut busting funny. I'm looking at "America: The Calendar", a daily calendar for my desk. On the back are some instructions, and even they're funny: "Step Four: Open calendar to today's -- and only today's -- entry. Seriously, if you read tomorrow's entry you're not only hurting yourself, but also the calendar's feelings."
