SJ's Saturday Jam

I chose today's video for the title -- Show Me! I bought an air card yesterday from my cell phone carrier. It installed perfectly in the laptop that's running XP and connected instantly, albeit it seems rather slow. I spent hours trying to get it to work with the laptop running Vista, though, to no avail -- until nearly midnight last night when I accidentally got it working due to something I found (via the Google gods) on a "technogeek" blog. Why is it that nothing seems to work with Vista unless you can find some applicable drivers to download and/or find arcane articles on ancillary techniques? So far, I haven't found the magic drivers and am relying on the arcana. I hate Vista! I'm seriously considering having Vista removed and XP installed.

Anyway, enjoy the song. Oh, and what would I like in return? Vista limericks! And the dirtier, the better.

Audioslave rocks, thanks for cranking up my Saturday morning.
I know zilch about Vista and it's too early to be limmericking.lol
I've heard it's sucky software

Glad you like it, TC. Happy cranked up Saturday morning to you. Vista big-time sucky, you bet.:)

Excellent choice. Those guys just look like they should be in a band. As for Vista, well, that operating system was the final straw that sent me to Apple. I've had my Mac for several months now and abso-f*-lutely love it. I would describe the Mac experience this way: It just works.

Rawk on sista SJ, and don't let that bitch vista get you down. :-D

I once met a system named Vista
Whose mannerisms made me pissed-a
If by chance I should meet
Vista developers here on the street
Up their hineys I would shove-a

Serena Joy said...

Merci, Trée, glad you enjoyed it.:) Sista may asking you for Mac lessons before all is said and done.

Puggy! I love, love, love your limerick! It so succinctly expresses every sentiment I've been feeling about the evil one.:-)

I'm happy you were happy with the video, /t. But come now, I know you can crank out a wickedly delicious ode to the evil Vista.:)

There once was a girl named Trista.
Post-coitus she remained in the nude,
Unlike the prude she called Sista.
I feel similarly screwed,
When I use the OS named Vista.

Serena Joy said...

Tell it, Brotha Charles! That's what I'm talkin' about.:-)

I need to go through here and label all these limericks, hiakus, and poems for posterity.

Sling said...

Vista OS on my 'puter,

I swear nothing in life could be ruder.

It's always a pain,

and if it screws me again,

well,..I'm just gonna take my hammer and smash the fuck out of it!

...I suck at this game.

Serena Joy said...

LMAO, Sling. I love it! Now I wish I had a hammer.:-)

It's not so much that Vista sucks, it just is VERY difficult to get drivers for much yet, so you're going to be facing that a lot. That will get better, it's just going to be awhile...

Like Tree, I am also switching to Mac asap, and hope to only have to deal with Vista when I am working.

There once was a guy named Bill
Who created an OS that will
Cause you to hate
Drivers not up to date
And trash it once you've had your fill!

Not dirty, but sooo true! :)

I think it's the lack of available tools to make it work properly (and efficiently) that causes so many people to hate Vista, Snow. I think that the bottom line is that it was released before it was ready for prime time. I've never used a Mac but I'm about ready to start learning how.

And thank you for the delightful limerick. It rocks!:-)

Camille Alexa said...

Not dirty, but:

I know not a thing about Vista.
It seems, the old system, most missed her.
Many tried the new way,
Got fed up in a day, and
Banged keyboards so hard they got blisters.

Serena Joy said...

Thank you, Camille, for another excellent limerick on the evil Vista.:)

ThatGreenyFlower said...

SJ, I just can't get all limericked-up about a Microsoft product.

Sorry. I did try!

Serena Joy said...

S'okay, Greeny. It's hard to work up a passion for Vista.:-)

G-Man said...

The G-Man knows nothing of Vista.
Cause he's an ignorant technological Mista..
But while playing a Bard
It makes him grow hard..
For Red-Heads and Starbuck Barista's...

Serena Joy said...

Galen! I am speechless -- but LMAO.:-) I knew I could get a limerick out of you.:)
