Vista, User, Apps and Daddy – a complex relationship

Here is how fellow Avanut Wayne describes the "conversation" between Vista and you (the user) when an app. decides to kick the bucket. I particularly like the last one. Big Smile

User: “This thing’s frozen.”
[Tries to close program using various keyboard and mouse actions.]

U: “Yep, totally wasted.”
[Task Manager displays]

U: “Kill this program.”

Computer: “Hey, uh, did you know that this program isn’t really responding?  I think it might be frozen.”

U: “Uh, yeah.  That’s kind of why I told you to kill it.”

C: “So, what do you want me to do about it?”

U: “Kill it already!”

C: “Wait, wait, I think its not responding…”

U: …

C: “Oh, ok, it stopped responding, lets figure out why.”

U: …

C: “Hmm, dunno.  I'm going to tell daddy.”
[Uploads problem report to Microsoft.]

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
