Windows Service Packs Stop Ships Sinking

I can probably put this dream down to days filled with Windows Update and last night’s episode of Stargate SG1 where Prometheus was destroyed by an Ori satellite.

The dream starts in the music corridor of Campbell High School as it looked in 2003 (a corridor I haven’t been in for at least three years), I am standing down the end with the door which leads out to the Central Quad (a place I named by declaration “Samuel Central Quad” when it was re-opened after being closed for part of a year) and looking towards the “keyboard lab” (a room at the end of the corridor), there are other people around walking about. All of a sudden there is a quiet bang, and the corridor starts to tilt, something which I announce in the dream. It is quite apparent to me in the dream that we have hit an iceberg and are sinking, so I rush down the corridor and turn left.

The dream hits an abrupt scene change at this point, and I am walking towards a command centre of some sort…there is a general sense of emergency and I go over to see a technician who is sitting at one of the computers…he informs me that the copy of Windows XP that we have to use is three years old, and we will have to apply updates ourselves…he then goes to the Windows Update website and I (seemingly being in charge) inform everyone of how annoyed I am that we don’t have these updates stored locally…by this time it has become apparent that we are saving the Internet, and not a boat…why? I don’t know, but we were.

The dream ends there…I wonder if we saved the Internet or the boat…with the track record of XP, I doubt it.

XP couldn’t kill time. However it wastes a lot of it.

I like your dream though. Do you often dream of High School?

In my dreams I can’t turn left for some reason. Consider yourself lucky.

How loud is a quiet bang?

Another interesting dream. Do you sometimes have lewd dreams? I know it does not bear discussing in polite company, but I was wondering if you edit the lewd parts out, or if lewdness does not enter into it, period.

I don’t dream about cats or clips, though.

In all honesty, the only dream I can recall which has even come close to being lewd, is one where I was a doctor and the surgery was near the library in my primary school…I did have to tell one patient to lie down on a table, but that’s as close as it came to being lewd.
