After successfully getting Windows XP SP2 installed on my laptop, I started installing other software.
This post has nothing to do with IE, but I need to vent.
Nameless 3rd Party App: Where do you want to install me? How about c:\nameless?
Jeffdav: How about c:\program files\nameless?
Nameless 3rd Party App: It is a bad idea to install me somewhere with spaces in the path. Continue anyway?
Jeffdav: No. Lame. At least it knows it is lame and told me while I still have a chance to do something about it.
Jeffdav: Okay, fine, c:\nameless.
Nameless Microsoft App: Installing…
Nameless Microsoft App: Installing… <30 minutes later>
Microsoft Windows: You have lost your connection to the wireless LAN! (I was walking to a meeting.)
Nameless Microsoft App: Internal Error 3452. [OK]
Microsoft Windows: You have reconnected to the wireless LAN!
Jeffdav: <clicks OK>
Nameless Microsoft App: Uninstalling…
Nameless Microsoft App: Thanks for playing. Please start from the beginning again.
The moral of this story, I guess, is that Setup is Hard.
