Shove them where the Sun don't shine

Heh heh heh. My anonymous friend is correct, of course, "Score: 5 funny" comments are too common and, usually, not funny.

I went to see "The Ring" this afternoon - not very good or scary. Seeing this little argument made me smile again.

Windows XP Service Pack 1

Half way through the installation of SP1, it says I don't have enough diskspace and it's aborting.

It then says my O/S is probably destroyed and I need to repair it.

Thanks Bill.

Here's a hint ... make the installer check for diskspace before altering anything!

If you're interested 250Mb on the system drive was too low.
450Mb was enough, for me, to install SP1

I wanted a moderation, any moderation, to test a theory. So I posted crap early. -1 troll? No. 4+ Funny. Yes.

If you want cheap karma, write a comment about robots.
