Windows is my bitch  
Windows, you have again tried to torment my life and failed.

This last time, your "fun pack" that let's the blogging utilities detect what music is playing automatically stopped working. You mocked me as I had to type in my song titles by hand. You laughed as I searched the web futilely looking for assistance that didn't exist. But I have figured out the secret locked deep within your registry. The secret that so tormented me for days.

And, now, I am going to document it should you decide to attack anyone else.

If your Windows Media Fun Pack Blogging Utility should stop detecting the song playing when you click Detect Music Now, do the following (after you've backed up your registry of course... I won't be responsible if you fuck up your computer, and it consorts with your toaster to kill your cat).

Run regedit
go to: \\Current User \ Software \ Microsoft \ Media Player

Delete the whole fucking group (or if you want to play it safe, rename it to something else like "Media Playerxxx")

Run Media Player. The configuration wizard will run; answer its questions. Problem solved (if you did it right).

Praise me as your god (j/k) lol
Mood: accomplished
Listening to: Queen Latifah & Pat Benatar - Love is a Battlefield (Remix)
