Scribbling will be light today and possibly tomorrow.
I'm moving house.
The problem is that the new house is fully furnished with Windows 8 [*yech*, *spit*] and I have to decide whether to chuck it completely out or install another less vile Windows beside it. Then there is the [significantly less] hassle of installing Linux.
At the moment, its' going through the first-time setup process.
It has already asked for my most intimate details including my Microsoft Account details [told it to fuck off on that score as I don’t have one]. It is now going through a series of tedious fucking screens greeting me with an over familiar “Hi” and telling me that “I can install apps from their store” [they can fuck off there too as I HATE the word “app” – it’s fucking “application”! OK? Lazy cunts.]
"We are now setting up your computer". We? There is only one computer and it's an inanimate piece of electronics, so less of the chatty chatty "we". I don't care if you have a fucking split personality, and I DO NOT want to be your friend. Show some fucking respect for your new master.
OK. It seems to have finished installing. Now it's downloading all sorts of shit I never gave it permission to download. It's asking me if I want to discover three reasons for buying my new machine. Why? I have already bought it and I did my research beforehand, so why the fuck give me a sales-pitch after I have bought it? Morons.
Fuck! Now it wants me to create an account with the computer manufacturer. Why? God knows. It can fuck off there as well.
Oh, sweeeeet! I have just received my first error message and I haven't even done anything yet. There is a problem with a shortcut? Too fucking bad. Fix it yourself if you're so fucking clever.
At this rate I won't be scribbling again for weeks.
