Kinda funny...

Last year, my friend upgraded his GirlFriend 3.1 to GirlFriendPlus
1.0 (marketing name: Fiancee 1.0). Recently he upgraded Fiancee 1.0
to Wife 1.0 and it's a memory hogger, it has taken all his space; and
Wife 1.0 must be running before he can do anything. Although he did
not ask for it, Wife 1.0 came with Plug-Ins such as MotherInLaw and

Some features I'd like to see in the Upcoming GirlFriend 4.0...

- A "Don't remind me again" button

- Minimize button

- Shutdown feature

- An install shield feature so that Girlfriend 4.0 can be completely
uninstalled if so desired (so you don't lose cache and other objects)

I tried running girlfriend 2.0 with girlfriend 1.0 still installed, they
tried using the same i/o port and conflicted. Then I tried to unistall
girlfriend 1.0 but it didn't have an uninstall program. I tried to uninstall
it by hand, but it put files in my system directory.

Another thing that sucks in all versions of girlfriend that I've used
is that it is totally "object orientated" and only supports hardware
with gold plated contacts.

***** BUG WARNING ********

Wife 1.0 has an undocumented bug. If you try to install Mistress 1.1
before uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney files
before doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.1 will refuse to
install, claiming insufficient resources.
