Windows XP is incompatible with Windows XP

September 25, 2012

I had to go through an excruciatingly lame ethics “course” for my employer that was really a slide show. The only challenge was figuring out which button or link to take next since their interface was horrendous, but that didn’t take long. There weren’t even any questions; I could have ignored all the text of their fit-for-elementary-school tale.

Before I could look at their ethics tale, I had to convince the web server to let me see their crap. In the process, I received a turd that I have tried polishing for you, but the poor fonts and scaling mean you may have to take the link to read it.

System Compatibility Check

System Compatibility Check

One of the computers I use at my job still runs Windows XP. The claim that it isn’t optimized enough shows whoever wrote the error doesn’t know the meaning of optimized. Even better is the suggestion that instead of running Windows XP, I should try running Windows XP. To get this far, I had to use Internet Explorer; the installed Firefox was too new according to the server, but I’m sure it would have worked fine. I tried to print the error page, but IE choked, quit responding to events, and crashed three hours later.

The Windows search dog is high

The Windows search dog is high again.

The search dog is high

That stupid dog can’t count and got the path formats confused. The last two results look like the first two with relative paths fit for a UNIX-like machine. I had this happen a few times while purging the computer I use at work of useless files. Several would show up all UNIX-y with slashes, and when I requested all the files be deleted, I was told that the files just found didn’t exist.

That dog is so very high.
