So its a little after noon today and I just woke up. No, I’m not a lazy late sleeper, I got home from work last nite about 4:45am. We had a huge server room rebuild consolidating ~40 servers, rebuilding two racks, and going to the data center. Loads of fun, let me tell you. Anyway, that information is incidental. I just woke up because my Dad called and woke me up asking for a favor. The conversation goes a little like this…
Dad: I need a favor from you and you’re not going to like it
Me: I’m not going to like it?
Dad: Your Uncle is here with his computer running Vista–
Me: You’re right, I’m not going to like it.
Dad: I’ve been on this stupid thing for hours and I can get it to connect to the wireless!
Me: I don’t support Vista, you know that.
Dad: Will you just look on one of your technical sites and find some answer?
Me: <quickly google “remove wireless network vista“>
Dad: Why did they have to move everything around? XP worked just fine and now they moved things and changed things I can’t even find what I’m trying to do!
Me: I’m upset that you woke me up, but I’m loving how much you’re hating Vista.
Dad: It’s a peice of crap!
Me: <giving instructions based on google search results>
Dad: Thank you.
I just thought I’d share that quick story with everyone. And here I spent months trying to convince them to switch to Linux. I guess all I needed to do was give him a copy of Vista for the morning. Mr. Ballmer, sir, you’re doing a fantastic job. Keep up the good work! 😉
