    That looks so true and very familiar. That explains why my 4core, 8gbram, 120gb ssd still lags just browsing the web.

    @Ken: Office 2003 was the last anyone ever saw of Clippy. He is rumored to be in exile, in an “undisclosed location” plotting his revenge by which he will short-circuit the world’s Windows PCs in a mass blue-screen attack.

    His possible manifesto reads as follows: “It looks like you’re trying to survive a mass overthrow of civilization by sentient AI beings culled from the depths of Microsoft Agent!!!!1! MISS ME YET?!?!?!?111!?”

    Rover the search dog, meanwhile, is reportedly in cahoots with Cerberus, the demon hound of hell (aka Kerberos, the demon hound of Microsoft’s security framework).
