  1. GIRLFRIEND UPGRADE[align=center]

    EIGHTEEN MONTHS AGO I UPGRADED TO GIRLFRIEND 1.0 FROM DRINKING MATES 4.2 WHICH I’D USED FOR YEARS WITHOUT ANY TROUBLE. HOWEVER, THERE ARE APPARENTLY CONFLICTS BETWEEN THESE TWO PRODUCTS AND THE ONLY SOLUTION WAS TO TRY AND RUN GIRLFRIEND 1.0
    WITH THE SOUND TURNED OFF.

    TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, GIRLFRIEND 1.0 IS ALSO INCOMPATIBLE WITH SEVERAL OTHER APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS LADS NIGHT OUT 3.1, FOOTBALL 2 AND PLAYBOY 6.1.

    SUCCESSIVE VERSIONS OF GIRLFRIEND PROVED NO BETTER. A SHAREWARE BETA-PROGRAMME, PARTY GIRL 2.1, WHICH I TRIED HAD MANY BUGS AND LEFT A VIRUS IN MY SYSTEM, FORCING ME TO SHUT DOWN COMPLETELY FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. EVENTUALLY I TRIED TO RUN GIRLFRIEND 1.2 AND GIRLFRIEND 1.0 AT THE SAME TIME, ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT WHEN THESE TWO SYSTEMS DETECTED EACH OTHER THEY CAUSED SEVERE DAMAGE TO MY HARDWARE.

    SENSING A WAY OUT, I THEN UPGRADED TO FIANCIE 1.0 ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT THIS PRODUCT SOON HAD TO BE UPGRADED (AT GREAT COST)TO WIFE 1.0, WHICH I RELUCTANTLY AGREED TO BECAUSE, WHILST WIFE 1.0 TENDS TO USE UP ALL MY AVAILABLE RESOURCES, IT DOES COME BUNDLED WITH FREESEX PLUS AND CLEANHOUSE 2000.

    SHORTLY AFTER THIS UPGRADE HOWEVER I THEN DISCOVERED THAT WIFE 1.0 CAN BE VERY UNSTABLE AND COSTLY TO RUN. FOR EXAMPLE, ANY MISTAKES I MADE WERE AUTOMATICALLY STORED IN WIFE 1.0’S MEMORY AND COULD NOT BE DELETED. THEY THEN RESURFACED MONTHS LATER WHEN I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT THEM. WIFE 1.0 ALSO HAS AN AUTOMATIC DIARY EXPLORER AND E-MAIL PORN FILTER, AND CAN, WITHOUT WARNING, LAUNCH PHOTOSTROP AND WHINGEZIP! THESE LATTER PRODUCTS HAVE NO HELP FILES AND I HAVE TO TRY AND GUESS WHAT THE PROBLEM IS MYSELF.

    ADDITIONAL COSTLY PROBLEMS ARE THAT WIFE 1.0 NEEDS UPDATING REGULARLY, REQUIRING SHOE SHOP BROWSER FOR NEW ATTACHMENTS AND ALSO HAIRSTYLE EXPRESS WHICH NEEDS TO BE REINSTALLED EVERY OTHER WEEK. WIFE 1.0 ALSO SPAWNS UNWELCOME CHILD PROCESSES THAT ALSO DRAINS MY RESOURCES. IT ALSO CONFLICTED WITH SOME OF THE NEW GAMES I WANTED TO TRY, STATING THAT THEY ARE AN ILLEGAL OPERATION.

    WHEN WIFE 1.0 ATTACHES ITSELF TO MY AUDI TT PROGRAMME IT OFTEN CRASHES OR RUNS THE SYSTEM DRY. WIFE 1.0 ALSO HAS A RATHER ANNOYING POP-UP CALLED MOTHER-IN-LAW, WHICH CAN’T BE TURNED OFF.
