I hate Vista. That, and I think I hate Google Chrome. That, and I hate Norton. Ever since my last Windows Fuckupdate, I am having problems commenting on other blogs. And by that I mean I can't. I'm sure this is for my protection.

What pisses me off is that I had both clever comments and useful advice. Not really, but it still pisses me off that I can't comment.

I'm getting a Mac. That's all there is to it.


  1. Poor Stuart! Vista still lets me comment (obviously) after the last update, but now I have to agree to sign away my first-born in order to see people's avatar pictures.

    Totally worth it, btw.

  2. Stuart, you and I must get together for a PC burning! I just got this one and apparently I have no admin rights! Who needs other programs anyway! And fucking Windows 7 SUCKS!

    I thought I was the only one who was no longer allowed to see Avatars.

    Oh and right now it's giving me a load of shit about commenting. Can't be processed! You little fucker!

  3. Wooo, Windows XP!!!! I love being in the stone ages sometimes, I was the last person I know to switch off of Windows 98, because my PC was working just fine while the XP machines were not. They even overwrote Vista with XP on my laptop when they ordered it, just for me.

  4. Bev - Obviously, I can post here, and the test on your blog worked, so it appears that re-uninstalling Norton has helped. I will test this by commenting the word "test" on every single blog I see. Yeah. Oh, and the avatar issue? Got that too. I can usually see the first three or four (assuming I get that many), but then nothing.

    Mala - Once I buy a Mac, I'm going to set this thing on fire and leave it on Bill Gates' doorstep next Halloween. I'm starting to wonder if the commenting thing might be an issue with Blogger. Maybe they've installed a filtering process that weeds out clever comments in order to maintain some sort of status quo. I can't discount that ...

    Elliott - I knew a guy who held the young Russian tech guy at Best Buy at gunpoint and had him install XP over Vista. It worked like a charm until one day his testicles exploded. He's sure there's a correlation.

  5. There are only a handful of blogs that I can see avatars on, which is annoying, especially after answering "yes", I want to view all content. I dunno, doesn't bother me all that much. Maybe it does. Who knows. Just happy to be online. (That's the little saint in me.)

  6. Update - apparently it's a time-related problem. I could comment earlier, but not now. On any blog except for my own.

    SM - I wanted to tell you that you rawk (for the charity donation and in general), but I guess I can't. This is fucking annoying.

  7. Well then I guess we're just going to have to move the party to your place, because a world without Stuart is not a good one.

    Why don't you get on Facebook? Come, join the party.

  8. I'll just have to erect a shrine in the form of a new topic so's I can say shit.

    I said "erect". Tee-hee.


Dance for me, my little puppets ...
