100% agreed.
Almost everything on pop radio these days is like this. The majority of what you hear of their voice doesn't even sound like their real voice either.

Play instruments, sing into a mic with your real voice....that's music.

One other thing I noticed today....
At work, all of the pc's run XP. everyone in the office area has updated programs,like, as current as they can get.
Now me, being in shipping, have XP, but don't have full internet access. can only go to select sites( usually trucking companies, UPS, FedEx).

The problem gets to be is that when I get emails, forms, and stuff that needs to be filled out, read, printed, yada yada.....everything is being sent from newer versions of everything. Even the stuff that the trucking companies send me don't like what I have to use to view/edit them with.

Office has newer versions of everything.
I have excel 97
word 97
Outlook 2003
And am stuck with Adobe Reader 6 for gods sake.
Everything I get in pdf format warns me that it may not work or look right, telling me to upgrade.
I get pdf's like every other day, and some of the trucking forms I have to fill out and print are pdf's.

What do I have to do to get something to not work right so they can upgrade my crap? I've tried just about everything, just hoping Outlook or Adobe fumble with something so then maybe they'll finally listen.

Oh, i'm getting a newer pc eventually, they think it may have 7 on it, but they might wipe it and downgrade to XP.....is that not just assanine? Everything we have runs on 7 just fine, but they're hanging onto XP with full grip.
If they can't at least make an effort to make things a bit less of a hassle for me, I might just have to ask for a demotion, so I don't have to deal with their stupidity.


I love my job, can't ya tell?

Real IT person, without a lot of leverage from the company. Everything these days is about saving money. Funny, they are getting me a new pc, but wanting to go back 10 years with the software.

Nothing at all today - I usually annoy others,
and I never met a person I couldn't annoy

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
