If Life Was Sofware???

Dear God-

I have been using your product for sometime now, ‘LIFE’ was a great concept, and I thank you for providing me with such a magnificent gift. I have noticed some things about ‘LIFE’ that I wanted to bring to your attention, so perhaps if you decide to provide us with the option to upgrade; the kinks can be worked out.

Let’s start off with me saying, I admire what you have represented with ‘LIFE’, but with as complicated and unpredictable as the software can be, shouldn’t it come with an instruction manual? There are just some things, I haven’t been able to figure out and if I had the manual-I think it would be easier for me and many of us who are your valued customers. I do have the ‘GUIDE’ that you sent-but it can be somewhat confusing, and I am not always sure which passage I should refer to when I have a question.

My second suggestion is, have you ever considered having away to reboot ‘LIFE’ when we catch a virus or make a mistake and need to go back to when we last remember out system working well? I was thinking that allowing for a, Ctrl, Alt, Delete to reboot and allow for us to erase and fix our mistakes would do wonders for this program.

I met someone whom also utilizes ‘LIFE’ with the same care and dedication as I. We decided to link up on the same server-and ever since we registered on the website, things have been spastic and not working properly. Do you have any suggestions to making both our programs work well and in sync on the same server?

Although ‘LIFE’ does seem to be improving across the board, and there are ways now to prevent viruses from eating your system when a new ‘LIFE’ is added to a server- but what about the ones of us who have older versions? Do customers with older systems have no other option than to maintain functional qualities until out system one day, just crashes? That does not seem fair at all from my point of view.

I realize that every ‘LIFE’ has a shelf life and at some point in time with cease to function properly. Perhaps batteries that would keep everything running for a short time, would be an asset? This way, when power goes down, you have a little bit more time to finish up things that are pending and make sure that everyone has what they need and your files are saved before you are forced to log out.

My final complaint about the ‘LIFE’ program is that, although each version has the same basic tools and functions, they are all different. I have seen some that have more extras and add-ons than I thought could ever exist. I have looked around and I can’t seem to find where I should go to download add-ons for the system I currently have. Can you shoot me an email with instructions on how I can obtain a copy of the extras? Please no boot-leg version, they only seem to last a short while before they begin to cause the entire system to have issues. I’ve known some people that have come across these bootleg upgrades, and they have been unauthorized to obtain working product keys until they can prove that they can use the program more wisely.

I hope you consider some of my suggestions, regardless of what you decide to do, thanks once again for such a beautiful layout that ‘LIFE’ has offered to its subscribers.


A Truly Dedicated Fan

      Good hub H.C., I actually get it. I think you may have a better version of software than some do. :-)

      I guess you will have Photoshop in your rig? - if you are into graphic design I'm sure you do... well the fact was (for me)that when I first used Photoshop I needed to read and follow the EXACT instructions to do even a simple bevel and drop shadow, because at that time even the Photoshop coders had not written the program to do it with one click.

      Now of course, after years of using Photoshop almost daily, I get around the product fairly well.

      But I still can't program it.

      Nice hub....

      This is not a reflection of what I believe God to be... I was just noticing how much of what people know and do is based on how much they know about computers. When on a computer, and you have a glitch- a screen comes up that allows you to send your issues having to do with the software to the company that manufactured/designed it, so they can analyze the weaknesses and when a newer version comes out-will hopefully eliminate what is unfavorable.

      I figured this was a different way to speak about 'LIFE'-Humans and God...

      Yes-I know that the bible has answers to our questions; I actually referred to the bible in this hub as the 'Guide'-which for too many people can be confusing and frustrating. I asked for a manual, (Bible for Dummies-per say) to point out, that the bible is open for interpretation and when you just want to know left or right--it comes down to the fact that it is ultimately your choice.

      Thanks for the comment and advice Nan-as always it is appreciated...

      You have portrayed an interesting version of what you deem GOD to be. The Bible is the source of information on the things that we need to know. You have to decide what context you want to understand it to be. There is no common bond or process of bringing GOD down to the level of mankind. Remember God is a spirit, and not a human being. He make the things go right in the world, he gives us the intelligence to decide and know difficult problems, it is called the BEAUTITUDES, the work of the Angels. I think that you need to go further into the BIBLE and use a dictionary to understand of what the meanings really are. Good Luck! I hope that someday you will have the experience of the presence of Angels in your life. GOD know your thoughts, and records them in the book of life! Really deep stuff!
