Bugs and Dust Balls: A ‘Clean’ Installation

Mildly amusing article at the New York Times, describing a typical person’s experience performing some simple upgrades on her PC. I got a big laugh comparing her experience with my own recent upgrades. I replaced almost every part in my PC, and I think I had less trouble than she did, and she was just trying to upgrade to Windows XP and add some RAM. (Also, I didn’t have to make a single tech support call. She must have made twenty.) I guess there’s some advantage to being a total geek after all. Also interesting to see the way she uses jargon. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone use the phrase “debugging the hard drive” before.
