Hated wife, still with here though
Never upgrade to wife 1.0, it's a common mistake

Question To Tech Support: Last year I upgraded Girlfriend 1.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. No mention of this phenomenon was included in the product brochure.

In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization where it monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Boys Night Out 10.3, Poker night 10.3, Golf 2.5 and Saturday Football 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected. I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some of my other favourite applications. I also can't seem to purge Wife 1.0 from my system. I am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 1.0 but uninstall does not work on this program. Can you help me?

Response: This is a very common problem men complain about but is mostly due to a primary misconception. Many men upgrade from Girlfriend 1.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a "UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT" program.

Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its creator to run everything. It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to Girlfriend 1.0. Hidden operating files within your system would cause Girlfriend 1.0 to emulate Wife 1.0 so nothing is gained. It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program from the system once installed. You can not go back to Girlfriend 1.0 because Wife 1.0 is not designed to do this. Some have tried to install Girlfriend 2.0 or Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than original system. Look in your manual under Warnings - Alimony/Child Support.

I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and just deal with the situation. Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPFs). You must assume ALL responsibility for faults and problems that might occur, regardless of their cause.

The best course of action will be to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE as soon as lock-up occurs. In any case, avoid excessive use of the ESC key because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to normal. The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all GPFs. Wife 1.0 is a great program but is of very high maintenance.

Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Chocolates 5.0. Do not, under any circumstances, install Secretary with Short Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operation system.
 
Which TELIC tours did you do?
What difference does that make?
Like I didn't do HERRICK. My point remains, Yokel took a cheap shot at someone who, whatever his faults, has deployed on an Op tour. Not the done thing, IMHO.
Generally I agree with your views on what's 'the done thing' etc, but this makes no sense at all.

Does someone doing 'an Op tour' excuse or justify their behaviour in any way?

I'm not just talking about their actions during the 'Op tour', whether it might have been killing or abusing prisoners or shooting or gassing civilians, but at any time?

... and does not doing a particular 'Op tour' mean you're not entitled to talk about it? Avoiding the holocaust, that would suggest that unless you were one of the Vietnamese who invaded and occupied Cambodia you're not entitled to talk about Pol Pot and the Killing Fields.

... or any less entitled to talk about it than someone who's done a particular tour, even though you may actually be far better informed?

That would seem to make studying history, ancient, modern or recent, a rather pointless affair!

I was out long before Telic and Herrick were a thing. And when they were, they wouldn't let me back in.
 
Looking back at some of the comments, I have missed a trick. In the early 80's when 32 AER was the only Armd Engr Regt, there was a 24 hour period, when due to Adventure Training swap over, yours truly as a Class 2 ECE was the only "electronics/electrical" guy left in the Regt.
I suppose my CV should read: "Had sole responsibility for the electrical inspection and maintenance of 1 (BR) Corp Armoured Bridging Capability"

You don't get it at all.

"Had sole periodic responsibility for the management, supervision and training of all Corps specialist electrical staff and the electrical inspection, oversight and maintenance of all 1 (BR) Corps Armoured Bridging Capability."

Doing an OP tour doesn't make you immune from ridicule or scrutiny.

Taking the p1ss for tour stuff whilst being a bare-chested type is something different, however I don;t think there's many Bravo_Bravo types about who do. Never served civvies jumping in for a bit of abuse to be cool is a bit irritating too.

Agreed completely. There's plenty of 'proper' soldiers around taking the p1ss for tour stuff from their fellow soldiers, past, present and in a body bag, without letting anyone else in on the act.


edit: to be fair, far from 'plenty'.

2nd edit: apparently Banner wasn't an Op tour, for those who thought it was:
Someone said:
Don’t include Banner. That was a standing commitment
... and, no, I'm not making that up.

Oh, he has amended it now

Hiya Steven HIYA
That's some going

Let me get this straight, he was a Lt.Col/Full Colonel at the same time as he was a Lt General (COMD IRAQI FORCES) - all whilst serving as the President of the Board (Court Martials).

He's got some time management skills, I'll give him that.
