Eight years of viral paranoia ... eight years of watching that lying motherfucking progress bar crawling - or just as often, straight-up frozen like a bloody mammoth in a glacier ... eight years of molasses-velocity boot-ups & command response ... eight years of knowing that I paid WAAAAAAAAAY too much for teh warez in my otherwise adequate Acer.
Four years of giving up in total humiliation & just ignoring it completely in favour of a new model once it became so unreliable & torpid that it was a ticket to more pain than utility every time I powered it up. But it still sat there the whole time, mocking me with its utter uselessness, like a scoreboard reading "Computer-1, Human-0."
Can't bear to use Apple software - I know it's sexy stuff but I find it both painfully abstruse & much too cute for its own good - so I guess I just have to grin & bear it ... I mean, you can't fight

I may be a dipshit when it comes to computers, but I'm nothing if not a stubborn one: after numerous failures, today I finally got the poor old critter to install 12.04 LTS without a hitch. It's running now even as I type.
