Upgrading to wife 1.0

Posted by koolpaw on October 12, 2013

  • Someone sent this to me as usual
  • Last year a friend of mine upgraded from Girlfriend 4.0 to Wife 1.0 and found that it’s a memory hog leaving few system resources for other applications. He is also now noticing the Wife 1.0 is also spawning Child-processes which are further consuming valuable resources. No mention of this particular phenomenon was included in the product documentation, though other users have informed me that this is to be expected due to the nature of the application. Not only that, Wife 1.0 installs itself so that it is always launched at system initialization where it can monitor all other system activity. Some applications such as Poker Night 10.3 , Bachelor Party 2.5, and Pub Night 7.0 are no longer able to run on the system at all, causing the system to lockup when launched (even though the apps worked fine before). Wife 1.0 provides no installation options. Thus, the installation of undesired plug-ins such as Mother-in-law 55.8 and the Brother-in-law Beta is unavoidable. Also, system performance seems to diminish with each passing day. Some features my friend would like to see in the upcoming Wife 2.0

    • A don’t remind me again button.
    • Minimize button.
    • Ability to delete the headache file
    • An install feature that provides an option to uninstall 2.0 versions without loss of other system resources.
    • An option to run the network driver in promiscuous mode allowing the system’s Hardware Probe feature to be much more useful/effective.
    I myself wish I had decided to avoid all of the headaches associated with Wife 1.0 by sticking with Girlfriend 3.0 Even here, however, I have found many problems. Apparently you cannot install Girlfriend 4.0 on top of girlfriend 3.0. You must uninstall Girlfriend 3.0 first otherwise the two versions of Girlfriend will have conflicts over shared use of the I/O port. Other users have told me that this is a long-standing problem that I should have been aware of. Guess that explains what happened to versions 1 and 2.

    To make matters worse, the uninstall program for Girlfriend 3.0 doesn’t work very well, leaving undesirable traces of the application in the system. Another identified problem is that all versions of Girlfriend have annoying little messages about the advantages of upgrading to Wife 1.0!

    Virus Alert

    All users should be aware that 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 MS Money files before doing the uninstall itself. Once that happens, Mistress 1.1 won’t install and you will get an insufficient resources error message. To avoid the aforementioned bug, try installing Mistress 1.1 on a different system and never run any file transfer applications (such as Laplink) between the two systems.

    FYI Don’t even think about a shared directory!!!

    He is OK

    Posted by koolpaw on June 7, 2010

    I have posted this ” He is NOT OK” over a year ago, BUT

    HE is OK! He has been OK, Damn, MORE THAN OKAY lol

    MFC has signed 16-year-old ZUMA talent Alexi Argyriou to provisional deal. Will debut for promotion when he’s 18. Setting a new precedent?


    Then found this news on another site

    MFC snares top young prospect

    Press Release: If there ever was a top-ranked, first-overall pick to be selected in a mixed martial arts amateur draft, the Maximum Fighting Championship feels it has made the right choice by snaring a can’t-miss prospect.

    The MFC has signed Alexi Argyriou to a provisional contract, and the 16-year-old is expected to make his professional debut when he turns 18. A product of the renowned ZUMA stable in Victoria, B.C., Argyriou is considered a young phenom with an incredibly bright future in the sport.

    The National Hockey League has its next budding stars in Tyler Seguin and Taylor Hall. The National Football League boasts future standouts in Sam Bradford and Gerald McCoy. In Argyriou, the Maximum Fighting Championship has mined out the next big thing, the five-diamond prospect poised to make an impact in mixed martial arts.

    “He is the No. 1 draft pick,” stated MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich. “We have the best young fighter anywhere now in our organization. I can’t be any more succinct – he is the future.

    “And not only is he a superb athlete, he is confident, he has great charisma, and best of all he is someone who brings that intangible quality of being able to hype and sell a fight. That is such a huge commodity and it jumps right out of him.”

    HEEEE This is GREAT! He already has a lot of fans from all over the world !!

    Happy Warriors

    Posted by koolpaw on November 25, 2009

    The long time journslist of  the Combat sports, Eddie Goldman talked with Roxanne Modafferi on his podcast, which has the most longest history among Internet radio ” nhbnews“. They both are talking to each others about not only her last fight against Marloes Coenen, but also a lot of topics like the differences of coultures, Having a job and fighting as a pro-fighter at the same time, HOW TO COOK TURKEY(wtf? lol) in very relaxed mood.

    Seems he liked the nick name a fan of Roxy had posted on her myspace blog b4 ” Happy Warrior”.

    Thats it, This is  why we watch female divisions MMA. Those fighters fight for Big money or getting spotlight on TV, Movies?

    No,  we watch female division coz the fighters are happy to fight in this sport, They shows skills which they have learned, Most of them like to challenge themselves and to fight tougher opponents, Enjoying everything around the competition like training, making wight, trevaling. They know each others and respect each others coz they know how this sport is tough.

    That is  the ” Pure Athletism” ppl always wants to watchin any kind of sports, Don`t you think?

    Other 2 Happy Warriors are on another popular Internet radio show this week. Kerry Vera who has destroyed some Madam at the last ShoMMA to step up to next level,  Sally Krumdiack who will fight Saori Ishioka at Japanese org ” Jewels”  on  Dec. 2009 were on`s Rear Naked Choke Radio.

    nhbnews is always informative and educational for various  kinds of the Combat  sport and it`s relative topics including MMA, Boxing, Wrestling with Eddie Goldman`s deep and inteligent view. RNC Radio is a fun show with 2 hosts Joe and Ted who have respects to the fighters and the sport. RNC also has ” Tara LaRosa” as  co-host .

    Marloes Coenen in U.S.A.

    Posted by koolpaw on November 5, 2009

    Marloes Coenen has been famous in Japan  for almost 10 years, although she is still 28 years old ! A cute teenager has become a scary but beautiful lady. Now she is going to fight at Strikeforce`s big event.

    Took this  from UG

    “Yeah, I’m really happy because in that fight I made her tap and she congratulated me in the cage but then all of sudden we had to continue fighting because the referee said it was just after the bell went. So it was a little bit controversial decision. So I’m happy I can settle the score now.”



    Roxy wrote today:

    I went to the open workout…I was not happy thinking that Marloes would get to see me work out…but she never came.  Why not?  I want her to get publicity, too!  Nobody knows about her! : (

    63Damn, she must not want to show her work out as well, Marloes is already in “fighting” mode !

    Concentrate, FOCUS !! You are the person who knows how Marloes Coenen is tough and skilfull, ROXY !

    More about Roxy vs. Coenen

    Posted by koolpaw on November 4, 2009

    Roxy took 1 week off(or more like 10 days-off?) from her job. Already She is int Chicago to get medical check of AC.  Coenen has landed to Chicago too. We could know it coz Roxy wrote that she met her and asked her autograph LMAO.

    That is the way of Roxanne Modafferi. She took days off from job, she works in a high classed Language school as a English teacher in Japan. It means She mostly looses her money for each fights. Do you think she cares about it?

    NO. She doesnt at all.


    Roxanne Modafferi has interviewed Marloes Coenen as a writer in 2008. She has been writing for several webs and blogs for a while. You can see how Roxy respects Marloes from this.

    Marloes Coenen is the one of real innovator of female division. has been fighting since the female division still didnt exist. Sha was introduced as a cute but skillful SHOOTO girl b4 her debut in Japan . i still remember the magazine which has reported  she had fought at ama SHOOTO even though she already had enough skill to fight at pro bouts. Also remember a TV program at the midnight had aired her training session in her Dojyo.

    Marloes was still a teenager at that time and called ” Kuu nen chan” in Japanese. Her moves were so quick and skillful. i was really impressed at that time. Maybe there are still some of those Japanese other than me are left who got shocked to have seen Coenen.

    This coverage of K-Grace by a Japanese blogger in 2007 has concluded that K-Grace was  worth to watch at the venue only for the final “Roxanne Modafferi vs. Marlose Coenen”


    You know what? This fight is not a “Tough girl” contest. It`s a skillful and athletic competition between real 2 top level fighters in the world.

    Analysis for Roxy vs. Coenen II

    Posted by koolpaw on November 1, 2009

    “lup” a.k.a.mad scientist of kangaroo land has corrected and checked my EngRish as usual. so if this post is unreadble for you, its not my fault, ok? I NO English 100% ok?

    updated and fixed EngRish with a help from a professional language teacher.

    Analysis for Roxy vs. Coenen II

    Roxanne Modafferi (blue glove tape) vs. Marloes Coenen
    Get more pictures like this from SHERDOG.COM

    You can read a brief background of this Roxanne Modafferi vs. Marloes Coenen II at here and here . I don’t predict this rematch but here are several points of “What to watch” in this fight.

    First of all, advantages and disadvantages.


    Roxy is originally a 135er.Fighting at 145 is oversize for her. At the same time, she is good at fighting bigger opponents. She proved it at vs. Coenen I in 2007. Although its still a  risky fight for a person who walks around 130 lbs. On the other hand Marloes Coenen must be walking around at 150-155 lbs. Fighting at 145 looks natural for current MMA. But remember that she has been fighting mostly in Japan which prefers open weight. Roxy doesn’t need to worry about making weight for 145, Coenen has to take that stressful process of dehydrade-rehydrade to fight under MMA unified rules in the north America. Still Coenen will have  the advantage of weight during the fight.

    b)The influence of the mental condition of the location

    Roxy is an American, she has fought in her country a lot of times. Chicago is not her home town but the USA is her home country. Its is the first time to fight in the States for legendary female MMA star in Japan “Marloes Coenen”. (Actualy she fought in the Abu Dhabi * side note from Roxy) She made weight for replacement on last Aug 15. but didn`t need to fight at that time. Most of things must be the first time for Coenen. Roxy has big advantage in this meeting with her old coach kirik who will corner her as usual, and maybe her friend/rival Tara LaRosa.

    c)Short notice of the fight and Changing of the opponent

    Roxy got very short notice for this fight like only 1 week b4 the fight day, even if  she is training for potential fight everyday. Coenen was scheduled to fight Cyborg at first, then Toughill. Both got pulled as her opponents and now the replacement is lighter weight but totally different type fighter than original strikers. Coenen also must have difficultiesmaking a new game plan even though she has been willing to avenge her loss against Roxy in 2007.


    Their first fight was an open weight / one night tournament “K-Grace”. Everybody thought Marloes Coenen would dominate the tourney. Coenen and her camp might have also thought so. Roxy and her striking coach at that time Kenji Osawa were obviously targeting Coenen only. Winning over Coenen=Winning the tourney. And their game plan and Roxy`s unbelievable guts made big success.


    The fight

    a)on the feet=striking

    Coenen is taller and bigger than Roxy, has a lot of advantages of reach on the feet. On Boxing/Kickboxing demention of MMA, Roxy has to avoid the range that Coenen can throw power strikes. Roxy needs to take Coenen to grappling game  first. But still Coenen has a mealy weapon, vicious knee striking from MuayThai clinch. Roxy and her corner men Kenji Osawa and K-taro Nakamura made good game plan for that at K-Grace. Underhooking Coenen`s arms,pushing Coenen`s chest with fore head. It`s an old and familiar move for Japanese, especially in Sumo wrestling. I believe you can see same move in any kind of wrestling like Greco Roman, Free Style, American Folk Style, Mongolian wrestling or Korean Wrestling. And IT WORKS. Roxy also used the cage to kill the power of Coenen.

    “waki o sashi te atama o tsukeru”


    We have to watch carefully about the “range” on the feet. Roxy has been training striking. Not only thinking about rematch against Coenen , but also concerned  about Tara LaRosa,Shayna Baszler or the most complete all-rounde  female fighter “Amanda Buckner“, there are new comers like Sarah Kaufman who have heavy hands and crazy cardio to keep throwing punch from quick steps and Katlin Young who has a deadly kick which can finish the fight in a moment at the 135 class. The striking game will be different from Roxy vs. Coenen I in 2007. But still keys on the feet will be

    “range” and “clinch”.

    b)on the ground=Grappling with Ground and Pound

    Overall, the most notable thing about MMA female division is,  its` ground fight. It is said that females are flexible and joints are kinda loose. Looseness of joints does not mean “tough joints”, but its true this factor makes the fights interesting and exciting. We often see unbelievable submission attempts and escaping at female division. You gotta remember  that Roxy and Coenen are both skilful grapplers. It means that we can not blink once they go to the ground.

    Most of the top female MMA fighters are good at guard games. Closed guard is not defensive in the female division, especially at top level fighters` bouts. A Typical fighter of this must be  “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler. Her guard position is the most dangerous trap among all of MMA fighters` aside from Miuguel Torres`s one. Even Roxy got trapped at bodogFIGHT. Keeping the top position doesn’t always mean she is controlling the fight. Most  top female fighters can control opponents and attack from bottom position using their flexibility. Roxy and Coenen are not an exception, or should i say “They are typical dangerous grapplers when they are at the bottom position” ?

    Roxy is basically a jujitsu-based fighter, good at positioning.Ground and Pound which she has been training a lot for a while will work with it. Coenen`s fight style on the ground is a bit aggressive, trying to hit sub from any position. It often reminds us of old “Catch wrestling” or SAMBO. I have watched Coenen focusing on GnP in a video on youtube at her fight in 2008.

    “Guard position” and “GnP” will be the keys on the ground.

    Anyways, This rematch will be a good showcase of female division. I HOPE CBS and Strikeforce will air this fight on Nov. 7th (8th for us  Japanese).

    LUP U ZACK !!!  Miss Modafferi who is a professional English teacher fixed my EngRish ! How long have you been chatting over the net with me? ALMOST 10 YEARS now. And you still don`t learn Japanese ! NOT FAIR !!!

    But as you have mentioned Roxy also found my tendency of missing plural(?) and articles. I know it`s a general problem of Japanese English learners.

    Thanx for fixing my EngRish, Roxy and “LAZY” lup !

    Posted by koolpaw on August 19, 2009

    Dan “The Handler” Hornbuckle is going to challenge Nick “The Goat” Thompson to get the right of the future vacant welter weight Belt of WVR !

    It`s a match-up that bodogFIGHT couldn`t make happen. Hornbuckle was stillyoung and a bit sloppy at the end of 2007. But now he is ready for the former bodogFIGHT Champ.


    wait, howcome its not the title match? The winner of this fight could be called the champ of WVR.

    Never mind about Nick`s cancelation of Breakthrough in KC. Mo has to earn his name and fans himself in the USA anyways. And HE CAN. Nick The Goat Thompson is now focusing on the fighting Dan the Handler Hornbuckle !!
