    where the temp is 32 deg and headed to 38 deg with snow in the forecast. :rolleyes:

    Chief - so when do you find time to build your benchwork and run trains. Better slow down for your own health. :)

    Tonight we will stop by the museum to take some pics of the building we got out.

    where the temp is 25 deg and headed to 35 with Blue Clear Skies. We only got a dusting of snow last night. :D

    Gil - that sounds great. I also like having some items from the same RR that I model.

    Chief is out of town again. Hard to tell when he will ever find the time to work on his benchwork. sign1

    Here are some pics of some the building that the museum had. They still have to be cleaned up.

    Dear Tech Support:

    Last year I upgraded from
    Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6

    I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!

    Thanks,

    A Troubled User.

    Dear Troubled User


    <DIV><DIV>

    This is a very common problem.

    Many men upgrade from
    Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

    You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony-Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

    The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.

    Wife 1.0 i s a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2.

    However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5 and/or PMS 99.0. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0!

    WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

    Best of luck,
    Tech Support

    ....... Also, if you DO NOT follow the instructions and warnings under "Warnings - Alimony - Child Support" -- This will result in a Virus: "Lawyer 1.0" .......which will, after permanantly attaching itself to wife 1.0, in but a few excruciating months result in the complete deletion of the following programs:

    wife 1.*
    Girlfriend 1.*
    House 1.0

    It will also overlay your Job 1.0 application with Job 2.0, Apartment 1.0 and completely uninstall all your "money" addendums and all extensions. sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1

    If you happen to ever see your wife in a "compromising position" with the gardener.... just shut the bedroom door.....

    If you do anything else....all it will get you is an apartment and a second job.. :D :D :D
