Geeky Quote of the Day 2

“If you are an average Windows user, you probably don’t understand what the registry is. The sad part is, Microsoft doesn’t either.”

(More on the registry here.)

    I know what the registry is!

    It’s the place to stay out of if you want any hope at all of your computer working like it should.

    That’s what the registry is.

    That’s the best description for the user-who’s-not-a-geek I can think of.

    When I was doing tech support, we had to frequently muck about the registry on customers’ computers to clean up their messes.  It was one of the most ticklish parts of the job.
