it must be the month for microsoftie to fuck wit' folks. i'm having all sorts of problems too, including a major fuser crash and many many more problems since the crash b/c reinstalling microsoftie isn't so fun what with all them thar drivers and upgrades and bugs. i discovered star office somethingerother on the web though. freeware, not shareware. i don't know much about it since i can't download -- my isp is thoroughly fucked as well. if anyone knows anything about staroffice i'd be interested. the point, though, is that there are alternatives such as freewar and shareware that's pretty reasonable. [btw, that dang www.anoyances site chuck recommended was no help.... boo hoo] oh and excuse my language but the entire structure of the 'fuser world is going to feel and hear my wrath in about 35 minutes if i have my way....

here's the link and below's a description:

sorry for overposting dougie but thought this plea warranted a response, particularly since i can only imagine that there must be more folks in same boat
