Motherfucking analshit! I just updated Windows Media Player using Windows Updater (It just wouldn't stop nagging, I just clicked something to stop it from meddling with my hamsterporn jerk session) and WTF? Turns out the copy of Windows XP I'm using, which was allready installed on my computer when I bought it on ebay (350 bucks for an Athlon X2 with a Geforce 7800 GTX and quality parts) was pirated, causing the updater to do nothing more than delete my old WMP and refuse to install the new one because the validation check failed. WTF? I'm not even going to write an elaborate insulting flamethread out of spite; I'm just gonna murder someone. Truly, I will murder several people, including innocent children, because of this. Are you happy now Microsoft? Causing all those kids to die unimaginably horrifying deaths because you wanted to fuck with my computer? Do you think we don't know your "installation" program was designed to wipe off WMP on bootleg systems? Why else would you do the validation check AFTER the installation and not BEFORE as sane logic dictates? Fuck you microsoft, I truly hope you, nazi-sponsoring IBM and Sony explode in a shockwave of debris caused by your congrated malevolence reaching critical mass. I've allready killed some retarted couple that knocked on my door asking me for the fastest way to the cemetery, and violated several small animals I found living in my mattress, now I'm gonna club someone to death with a live black-market dolphin. That is, unless I can someone fix this shit. I've got two original copies of WinXP, and would install them in a heartbeat were it not for the fact that I have too much shit installed (170+ Gig of program files) allready to give up. I don't trust that crappy "File transfer wizard" WinXP provides to safely preserve my program files eighter. Knowing microsoft, it's probably programmed to track down your most-opened files, and delete them, just for the hell of it. Perhaps there is some kind of crack I can use to override the authenticity check? I googled and did find some confirmation that such a crack exists, but there's much ambiguity out there on wether or not MS fixed the latest crack or not. Can anyone lighten the burden of my predicament by giving me some advice on solving this unfortunate situation? UPDATE: Crap. Turns out murder is illegal in my state. And that retarded couple survived somehow, presumably because they were retarded. Ah well, atleast the "animals" in my mattress are dead. Tonight, I won't have to sleep in the dishwasher!
