Problem here is being the guy stuck in the middle. The ultimate reason for the log jam is two-fold. They couldn't speed up the conveyor that took away the totes plus the Navy or original conveyor manufacturer never planned on the delivery being that fast.

Result was that the host computer that handled all of the parts ordering had to be throttled down so that they didn't request any more than the conveyor could handle!!

I agree with Nancy and the comments about all of the junk that microsoft has dumped on us over the years. PLUS, they never release an operating system that is not buggy any more, if they ever did. And all sorts of things work the way that programmers think, and programmers are NOT NORMAL PEOPLE. We all know that, most are too polite to say it, though. What was so hard about launching a program by calling it's name? And using a file for more than one program is something that I was doing back with DOS 3.???, and it worked quite well. Plus, the programs were written efficiently and they were fairly small, and the operating system was just a tool to use with things, it did not have it's own 40 foot tall ego, like most versions of window do today.

The intensely bloated software is the reason that the 50 MHz computer is not fast enough any more. We really don't need all of the stinking little features that we always get, and there is really no reason that a person to lazy, or to dumb to learn how, should be using a computer. 

Now the OS is tending toward controlling what we do and how we do it, and attempting to say that the only right way is the windows way. I see problems with that, it sounds a lot like thought police to me. Shades of "1984" (the book, not the year).
