2015 Halloween Costume Ideas

In October 2014, I posted several dozen choices of cheap, quick and fun Halloween costume ideas. For the first several days of this month I put some more out on social media, however work got in the way of play.

Dear Tech Support

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from GirlFriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that a new program began “Unexpected Child Processing” that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activities. Applications such as “Poker Night 10.3”, “Football 5.0” and “Hunting & Fishing 7.5”, as well as “Racing 3.6” no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.

I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I am thinking about going back to GirFriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn’t work in Wife 1.0. Please Help!

Thanks,

Troubled User
