    Oh no!

    Okay, go here and listen to daisy.wav to help set the mood.

    I got the same error. And I'm disappointed about that, because there's nothing more heartwarming than apple pie, the Miss America Pageant, and a nice story about a boy and his server.

    Heh, got it now.

    Greg, I wouldn't start to worry unless you start on the upgrade and your machine asks you, "What are you doing, Greg?" :rofl:

    I was hopeful that upgrading would change my title to a Super Mentor! Somehow that means "PF is gone!". But it didn't happen!:grumpy:

    Funny you should mention that. A couple of years ago I got the 2001 soundtrack on CD. Included were clips of all the conversations with HAL. So I put the CD in my computer and used edited sections of those clips for the sounds for my computer.
    So for the Exclamation sound I got "What are you doing Dave?"
    For the Program Error sound I got " I'm afraid that I can't do that, Dave"
    And for windows shut down I got a few bars of HAL singing "Daisy"

    I think it was in Windows 95, but maybe it was way back in Windows 3.11 that they had those wav files as options for the sounds, so I had those, along with the StarTrek sounds (the doors opening and closing accompanied opening and closing a window or application). :rofl:

    Hal is simply way too scary for me.
    I had to run off and have Leonard Nemoy sing a reassuring ballad for me:
