My latest tech call

I was having issues with my new windows 7 laptop so I called tech support. A woman named Fiona answered and asked what was wrong. I informed her that my new laptop refused run Viva Media's "The Enchanted Unicorn" when the Microsoft windows 7 compatibility specifically states that it will work without any problems. I even emailed her the proof - see below. She was baffled. I informed her that I knew my friend's Apple Mac runs it just fine even in a parallels install. Why can't my laptop run it native? She informed me that my laptop was lacking the new glitter expansion unit. The glitter expansion? What is this? She went on to inform me that I needed to purchase a large quantity of glitter from the local Wal*Mart and pour it into my DVD drive. Ok. I was very hesitant at first but I bit the bullet and purchased the glitter, poured it into my DVD drive, and voila, my Windows 7 laptop transformed into a TotalFinder running Mac. Now I can use Finder and run my treasured "The Enchanted Unicorn" game!
