When I got this computer last year, Vista had not yet been released, but the computer came with the “Vista Upgrade” option which I was excited about because I am nerd and I like Microsoft.

So last night I decided to finally upgrade my computer only to find out that HP is a huge f-ing liar and the supposed upgrade was a flat out reinstall of Windows, which meant bye bye Karla’s programs and custom settings.

I kid you not, the installation instructions went something like this:

WARNING: Window’s Vista is a brand spanking new installation. Back up all your shit or you will be sorry.

The Hewlett-Packard Upgrade Utility for Windows Vista will half assed guide you through the following steps to install the Windows Vista operating system on your notebook computer.

Two disks are provided in the upgrade utility kit, but only one works.

Tee hee.



Good luck Sucka!

When the install is complete proceed to make out with your new operating system because you love it that much.

And then cry when you realize that your forgot to back up all of your RSS feeds.

May I suggest Fedora Linux as an solution? :)

SUE EM!~ Hey - that lawyer is suing the Chinese Dry Cleaning people for losing a pair of his pants and getting like, 54 million out of it.

Bill Gate has more money than the Chinese couple... I'm thinking you should sue for BIG BUCKS BABY! :)

Hi Steven
This is Mark's response to your Linux suggestion:

SteveErcolaniObj ConvertToLinuxDweeb(Person RegularHuman)
SteveErcolaniObj ConvertedPerson = new SteveErcolaniObj();
Person TempPerson = RegularHuman;
TempPerson = ConvertedPerson.MakeHateMicrostForNoGoodReason(RegularHuman);
RegularHuman.CanBeSteveErcolani = true;
SteveErcolaniObj =RegularHuman.ConvertToSteve();
return SteveErcolaniObj;


But don't worry. We love you anyways. :)

Oh no!!! I would be devastated if I had a complete reinstall of windows. Especially if I lost my RSS feeds. I'm so sorry. So I will shamelessly remind you not to forget to add my blog into your new list! (And can I add that your Nate may be THE cutest most precious thing I've ever seen? After my own, of course)

If I lost my RSS feeds, I would surely cry.

My BIL gave us Vista on our new computer, and I really like it. Luckily for me, I had my feeds on a server, not my computer.

That sucks so bad! We've had so many problems with Windows that we are mostly using Linux...except for a few programs that need windows. I use a Mac's sweet!

BTW, L-O-V-E Marks response to Steven's comment...must show to geekified hubby!

My FIL, who knows next to nothing about computers, just tried to install Vista without any help. He has since bought the business version (thinking it would be easier), reformatted his hard drive, and reinstalled what he had before the whole debacle.
