2008-02-06 "You’re No Good"

Wed Feb-6-2008 is known as Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent for most Christian denominations. This is a period of 40 days of fasting and praying, and is symbolic of the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert and the 40 years the Israelites spent looking for the Promised Land.


After all the food and desserts I ate over the holidays, I certainly need to do some fasting. And when dealing with computer errors (whether dumb errors or critical show stopping errors), we sometimes say things we shouldn’t – possibly under our breath, possibly not! And when it comes to Vista, I feel like I’ve been in the desert waiting for Service Pack 1 to be released.


So … I’m in one of those holly, jolly depressed moods as I’m working on three systems all down at the same time (different clients). I said to myself, “Myself, let’s find a suitable song for today”. So, here we go — Linda Ronstadt’s version of “You’re No Good, Baby You’re No Good”!


I found a video of Linda singing her hit song.


It’s No Good
(aka You’re No Good)

Feeling better now that I’m through
Feeling better ’cause I’m done with you
I learned my lesson, with Vista so far
Now I see how you really are

It’s no good, it’s no good, it’s no good
Vista, you’re no good

I’m gonna say it again
It’s no good, it’s no good, it’s no good
Vista, you’re no good

I crashed my drive, lost my files, too
Well I crashed my drive thinking Vista would do
I’m telling Microsoft I’ll wait for SP2
I wouldn’t blame them if they said to me


It’s not bad, it’s not bad, it’s not bad
Vista’s not so bad

They’re gonna say it again
It’s not bad, it’s not bad, it’s not bad
Vista’s not so bad

I’m telling you now Vista and I’m going my way
Forget about you Vista ’cause XP’s here to stay


It’s no good, it’s no good, it’s no good
Vista, you’re no good

I’m gonna say it again
It’s no good, it’s no good, it’s no good
Vista, you’re no good


P.S. These song parodies are done in good humor. In all fairness, my Vista PC has been running great since July 2007.

  1. Vista will get there eventually, of course. A long gestation period, though. I think Microsoft may have overestimated the public’s desire for hardware upgrades a bit among other hang-ups. Nice work on this blog, it’s very extensive. How did you find being a solo SBS consultant?

  2. Tim, I was one 6 years ago, took a detour for a couple of years while I went to work for one of my customers. Generating new clients is slow work, word of mouth.
