I hear you on the wife bit. My wife used to buzz over me like a bee 
anytime I got near her computer, and would -- literally -- rip my hair 
out if I changed something she was used to. 

So I gave up on keeping her computer upgraded. 

But fortunately, the major problem -- the wife -- will soon be over. My 
only regret is that divorces take so damned long. 

However, I am happy to say my hair is growing back now... 

Now, if only us geeks could figure out how to make as wise a choice for 
spouses as we do about operating systems, hardware, software, raid 
configurations ... 


Will never make that stupid marriage mistake ever again... bad choices 
in that arena are VERY difficult to debug.
