x64 Will Die

Today is the day I leave the 64bit world behind me and go back to the safety of x32 XP Pro.


Because Windows XP x64 is the most cunswuppery piece of crap ever released to market. Nothing works on it!

My printer doesn’t work, no freakin’ webcams work on it, Paperport doesn’t work, OllyDbg doesn’t work … the list goes on.

It plain sucks donkey balls. So today it goes back to the shop to be fixed. And this is a first for me – normally I do all of this work myself – after all, I work in IT!

Sometimes it just isn’t worth it. I deal with tech problems a lot and sometimes you just want to give the problem away and say “here – you deal with it”.

Chefs eat out from time to time, so I’m doing just that. I’m dragging its sorry ass down to the shop that built it, handing it over and paying them to exorcise the demon that is x64.

It will die, oh yes .. it will die. And whilst it is being scrubbed off my hard drive I shall enjoy a drink or two awaiting the phone call to come and collect the nice shiney XP Pro install.

I can’t wait 🙂

    Hehehe, welcome back to safe heaven then! Back to the world where INT21 is INT21 and not some vague (wrongly) emulated instruction 😉

    I’m not sure though about your decision to bring your computer away. There’s a serious risk of little nerds drooling all over your hardware after seeing it boot up. They definitly haven’t seen the likes of your machine before, I mean, Quad-SLI and 4 GB of the fastest RAM around? *drools*

    I hope your machine will survive the visit and that you have a hangoverless weekend 😉
