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!
Dear Troubled User:
This is a very common problem that men complain about.
Many people 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 is 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. 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,

--Make a Dog's Day Day: started/sponsored by Subaru, today is a campaign for dog owners to share the fun things they do for their canine friends that make them feel special; today is also a reminder of the shelter dogs that still need someone to adopt them and make it their day.
--National Knee Day: today celebrates our knees for the mobility and flexibility they give our bodies; from checkiday: " Most movements done with legs require knees, which connect the femur bone of the thigh to the tibia bone of the shin. The largest joint in the body, the knee works like a hinge, and can also rotate slightly, allowing the bending and straightening of legs, which in turn permits standing, crouching, walking, running, jumping, and turning. Humans are not born with kneecaps, but instead, have soft cartilage which ossifies sometime between the ages of two and six. The knee joint is covered by the kneecap, which is known as a patella, or "small plate," in Latin. The kneecap is a sesamoid bone, a bone buried within a tendon. Knees are prone to injury: strains can cause ligament and tendon injuries such as chronic inflammation and the tearing of the meniscus, and knees are also susceptible to rheumatoid arthritis, and Ehlers-Danlos, a collagen disorder."
--National Nut Day: today is a salute to a very healthy snack when eaten in moderation; nuts help reduce hypertension plus are full of protein, fiber and unsaturated fat.

--Wombat Day: observed in Australia and its surrounding islands; the wombats are short-legged, muscular quadrupedal marsupials that are native to Australia; as a marsupial, the young are carried in the mother's pouch but, where the kangaroo pouch opens towards the mother's head, the pouch of the wombat opens to the side so mom doesn't kick dirt on baby when she's digging her burrows.
