I fucking hate computers

Srsly. What the fuck.

Installed SP3 on the XP machine at home, and now it wont boot. Sits there at the BIOS screen. A brief search on the interpipes and I discover its not an uncommon thing for people with AMD. But SP3 has been out for months! That's terrible!

And there is a KB article on removing SP3.

At least warn me when I am reviewing the pending change that this might brick your machine.

Luckily I had a Ubuntu laptop from work given to me. Ah but Ubuntu is shite isn't it. Yes, the networking never works after boot up, and when I try to configure the interfaces, the interface configuration tool tells me that the configuration name is invalid. WTF?! Not to mention that this IBM R60 seems incapable of resolutions higher that 1024×768. What is this, the 90's?

There is no wifi monitoring tool, out of the box for Ubuntu. C'mon guys, when I clicky-click on the little network icon in my toolbar, I expect to be able to select from a list of Wifi's, then to enter my details. And I also expect you to fucking remember that I've done that next time I reboot.

I fucking hate computers.

I'm going to go play in the big blue room today.
