Wednesday 14th February - All You Need Is Love

Happy Valentine's Day! Here's a little love story for you...

How to Install Love - a computer story by author unknown

A call comes through on the customer service line.

Tech Support: Yes, how can I help you today?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install LOVE. Can you guide me through the process?

Tech Support: Yes, I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready to install now. What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your HEART. Have you located your HEART?

Customer: Yes I have, but there are several other programmes running right now. Is it okay to install LOVE while they are running?

Tech Support: What programmes are running?

Customer: Let's see, I have PAST HURT, LOW SELF-ESTEEM, GRUDGE and RESENTMENT running right now.

Tech Support: No problem. LOVE will gradually erase PAST HURT from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt other programmes. LOVE will eventually overwrite LOW-ESTEEM with a module of its own called HIGH SELF-ESTEEM. However, you have to completely turn off GRUDGE and RESENTMENT. Those programmes prevent LOVE from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?

Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your Start menu and invoke FORGIVENESS. Do this as many times as necessary until GRUDGE and RESENTMENT have been completely erased. 

Customer: Okay, done. LOVE has started installing itself automatically. Is that normal?

Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base programme. You need to begin connecting to other HEARTS in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops. I have an error message already. It says "ERROR PROGRAMME NOT RUN ON INTERNAL COMPONENTS". What does that mean?

Tech Support: Don't worry, that's a common problem. It means that the LOVE programme is set up to run on Internal HEARTS but has not yet been run on your HEART. In non-technical terms it simply means you have to LOVE yourself before you can LOVE others.

Customer: So what should I do? 

Tech Support: Can you pull down the directory called "SELF ACCEPTANCE"?

Customer: Yes, I have it.

Tech Support: Excellent. You're getting good at this.

Customer: Thank you.

Tech Support: You're welcome. Click on the following files and then copy them to the "MY HEART" directory: FORGIVE SELF, REALISE WORTH, and ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR LIMITATIONS. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete SELF-CRITICISM from all directories, and empty your recycle bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My HEART is filling up with new files. SMILE is playing on my monitor and PEACE and CONTENTMENT are copying themselves all over my HEART. Is this normal?

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes a while, but eventually everything gets downloaded at the proper time. So, LOVE is installed and running. One more thing before we hang up.

Customer: Yes?

Tech Support: LOVE is freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet.

Customer: I will. Thanks for your help.
