INSTALLING A HUSBAND
Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a
Distinct slow down in overall system performance –
Particularly in the flower and jewellery applications, this operated
Flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0
In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable programs such as AFL 5.0, The Ashes 3.0, and Golf Clubs 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I’ve tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no
What can I do?
Quantas gripe sheet
It takes a college degree to fly an air plane but only a high school diploma
To fix one: a reassurance for those of you who fly routinely in your jobs.
After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a “gripe Sheet”
Which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft.
The Mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and
Then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.
Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor.
Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas’ pilots (marked With a P);
And the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance Engineers.
By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never had an Accident.
