    Unhappy Dont you hate it?

    Dont you hate it when stuff just suddenly disappears from your computer? Doom and Doom 2 are just suddenly gone...what the heck happened to them? Did Windows decide they were fun and so it took them away from me so it could play them on its own in the background, away from where I can play them, and so it can have all the fun...therefore its paying too much attention to Doom and not to itself, so it could error at any time and I would have to reboot...stupid Windows....going off to play Doom without me...I always knew computers had minds of their own...

    Why izzit when anything goes wrong with one's
    computer, everyone immediately accuses the
    operating system thereof? Give poor Bill Gates
    a break, willya?

    Here is the breakdown for these events:

    5% of the time its a user error (you accidently do these things)
    75% of the time its stupid windows
    20% of the time the hardware just doesn't care anymore, and gives in to the temptation of deleting our favorite games.

    And if windows weren't responsible for it most of the time then why is it that windows doesn't dissapear?
