Maybe I am a cynic but when ever a street criminal has a problem with the police and goes to the press, Girlfriend 2.3 is automatically upgraded to Finance 1.0
Case in point, the person in Phoenix who shoplifted underwear and whose child shoplifted a doll. Cops came and arrested him.
His pregnant girlfriend, with whom he has already had two children instantly morphed into his fiance. It is part of the script.
Call me cynical. If he had not married her after the first baby then he was never planning to marry her.
I'm currently running the latest version of GirlFriend and I have been
having some problems lately. I have been running the same version of
DrinkingBuddies 1.0 forever as my primary application, and all the
Girlfriend releases I have tried have always conflicted with it. I hear
that Drinking Buddies runs fine as long as Girlfriend is ran in
background mode and the sound is turned off.
Unfortunately, I can't find the switch to turn the sound off. Therefore,
I have to run both of them separately. Girlfriend also seems to have a
problem coexisting with my Golf program, often trying to abort Golf with
some form of timing incompatibilities.
I probably should have stayed with Girlfriend 1.0, but I thought I might
see better performance from GirlFriend 2.0. After months of conflicts
and other problems, I consulted a friend who has had experience with
Girlfriend 2.0. He said I probably didn't have enough cache to run
Girlfriend 2.0 and eventually it would require a Token Ring to run
properly. He was right, as soon as I purged my cache, and realized that no
one in their right mind is installing new token rings, Girlfriend 2.0
Shortly after that, I installed Girlfriend 3.0 beta. Unfortunately,
there was a bug in the program and the first time I used it, it gave me a
virus. I had to clean out my whole system and shut down for a while. I
cautiously upgraded to Girlfriend 4.0. This time I used SCSI probe first
and also installed a virus protection program. It worked okay for a
while until I discovered that GirlFriend 1.0 was still in my system. I
running Girlfriend 1.0 again with Girlfriend 4.0 still installed, but
Girlfriend 4.0 has a feature I didn't know about that automatically
senses the presence of any other version of Girlfriend and communicates
with it in some way. This results in the immediate removal of both
The version I have now works pretty well, but there are still some
problems. Like all versions of GirlFriend, it is written in some obscure
language I can't understand, much less reprogram. Frankly, I think there
is too much attention paid to the look and feel rather than the desired
Also, to get the best connections with your hardware, you usually have
to use gold-plated contacts and I have never liked how GirlFriend is
A year ago a friend of mine upgraded his version of Girlfriend to
GirlFriendPlus 1.0, which is a Terminate and Stay Resident version of
GirlFriend. He discovered that GirlFriendPlus 1.0 expires within a year
if you don't upgrade to Fiance 1.0. So he did, but soon after that, he had
to upgrade to Wife 1.0, which he describes as a huge resource hog. It has
taken up all his space: He can't load anything else. One of the primary
reasons he decided to go with Wife 1.0 was because it supposedly came
bundled with a feature called FreeSex Plus.
Well, it turns out the resource requirements of Wife 1.0 sometimes
prohibits access to FreeSexPlus, particularly the new Plug-ins he
wanted to try. On top of that, Wife 1.0 must be running on a well
system before he can do anything. Although he did not ask for it, Wife 1.0
came with MotherInLaw which has an automatic pop-up feature he can't turn
off. I told him to trying installing Mistress 1.0, but he said he heard if
try to run it without first uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete
MSMoney files before uninstalling itself. Then Mistress 1.0 won't install
because of insufficient resources.
P.S. Watch out for the K-I-D-S virus because they have an insatiable
appetite for memory and CPU time over and above everything else above
