Default I just upgraded...

Well, on Thursday night I upgraded from Girlfriend V1.0 to Fiancée V1.0. After running the previous version for 15 months with no compatibility issues, and realizing that it had exceeded all expectations; I decided the price tag for the upgrade was well worth it.
I will be upgrading again in June of 2009 to Wife V1.0, which will carry a hefty price tag for the install program (Wedding V1.0) that will be covered by a third party vendor: In-Laws.
Over the next 15 months my current hardware (House V1.0) will undergo extensive overhauls and system cleanup in preparation for the install of Wife.
I will most likely have to move all current file storage to "garage" and recycle bin or trash.
Just wanted to share...

The v 1.0 Viruses come after a year.
The hardware goes soft and the software goes into a firewall.
Finally you only get to play games on your birthday and Xmas...sometimes on Valentines Day.

Best of Luck to the both of you.
