    I did the same thing last night for five fucking hours setting up a new PC. Somehow I completely fuzzed on the entire CONCEPT of a computer shipping without wifi, so I guess i didn’t add it in. Which meant shredding an ancient fullheight PCI 802.11b card and turning it into a halfheight PCI card and then finding the drivers on a working computer that takes four minutes to launch a new browser window. My choices include 3001a_1, 3001a_2, or 3000a_3. OH MY.

    Then the printer fun could begin!

    DID YOU MEAN THE HP 1980 DESKTOP COMPUTER OR THE HP 1980 DESKJET PRINTER? (are they seriously running out of numbers? is even this tiny bit hard to do right?)

    DO YOU WANT THE 470MB FULL VERSION WITH NETWORK SUPPORT? OR THE 46MB BASIC VERSION? OR THE 45 MB BASIC VERSION WITHOUT NETWORK SUPPORT? WHAT OS? XP 64 BIT OR 32 BIT? CAN I HAVE AN EMAIL? ARE YOU SUUUUUUURE YOU’RE HAVING A FUN TIME ON THIS SITE?

    Then there’s fighting and struggling to get printer sharing working. Then there’s battling the preinstalled shit. Then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then then.

    It’s hopeless and pointless and fruitless and made tolerable only by the fact of Google Earth on a modern GPU.

    oh man there is little worse than updating your printer drivers

    they make it like this so you’ll just say “fuck it, I’m just going to buy a new one”
