SP3 product key

You should take it back to where you bought it and let them know.

Ummm....

wow. I'm nearly speechless, and what I would like to say would likely put me on the Shhhht List.

sp3 ****????

Scummy One, where are you when you're needed?

Really.

by seanferd In reply to Ummm....

My thoughts exactly.

Along with: I'm not even sure what you mean.
SP3 for what?
Why is it on a [disk]?
Product key for what?

I'm sorry, but I just couldn't even get that far with it...

having been too busy wiping the tears of laughter off of my keyboard. I'll have one of those se grins for the duration of the evening, and well into next week...

Whatever happened to proofreading?

Hmmm... perhaps a new sidebar for TR Out Loud... Silliest Post of the Week? Though 'Certain far too serious' types might not appreciate the addition.

You know, I do have XP SP2 and 2K SP4 on disk. Makes life much simpler after a re-install and adds a bit of longevity to an unsupported Windows OS. I still use 2K, and have SP4 to apply, thus adding to the initial security level in spite of not being able to acquire updates from MS.

As I recall, the SP doesn't require a product code, just the OS to which it applies.

Oh, I store service packs

Risking further explication which I had formerly declined: Is it a Windows OS with the SP included? What *is* the product code required for, if not this? Or did we download an illegal OS torrent that wasn't properly cracked?

Sometimes, for me, part of the amusement is asking, "What the **** are you talking about?", and then offering a few directions one might guess in.

Lame, I know. I would like to know sometimes what it is queries like this actually mean. It can be much more amusing once I find out what someone actually meant to say.

"Lame I know"

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Oh, I store service packs

not lame, seanferd. I rather doubt that 'lame' fits you much at all.

While a matter of opinion, the inanity that amuses too many people is lame. Being amused by speculation in a purposeful and interesting manner is far from lame.

Well...

by seanferd In reply to "Lame I know"

Since the purpose of my speculation is understand the specific subject, and also the thought processes behind the mechanics of presenting a query in such a manner, my interest *might* avoid classification as 'inane', provided I don't simply use any enlightenment in these areas sole for the purposes of momentary amusement. <br><br>

I find that I think in this manner quite a lot. Not so much, "What were you thinking", but, "How do you think like that?" I would really like to grok the way some people think and express themselves (and forgive me if I sometimes find the answers amusing or frightening on occasion). I mean, I can understand some fairly incoherent persons, and all manner of dissociative thinking or other "clinical" mental states. It is the average sloppy-thinking joe that blows me away.

Well seanferd you just crack me up (that's a good thing)...

I can't stand it!

The theologians, philosophers, and psychologists have spent years educating us as to why we do the 'bizarre' things that we do. What they don't seem to always explain real well is why we do the 'sloppy' things we do!

edit again: title change - crappy original

I must agree with boxfiddler that it is funny

by ComputerCookie In reply to sp3 product key

however I read the post twice before she replied and 'I' didn't notice the spelling error.

I originally was going to post but after posting to someone else last week who claimed he was using SP3 I couldn't be bothered.

I know that Technet has been sending me emails for the last two weeks saying I can download Vista SP1 (already have the Beta), only have pay $595 to get a TechnetPlus subscription!!!!

Edit: clarity, errors and spelling
