Duh, 101

So this falls into the category of stupid statements of the century. masterofmusings is still trying to install and configure programs on his new laptop. He was looking on the Winzip site for the download and wasn't having much luck for a while. I offered to send it to him, and he said that I couldn't because it was an executable file and those don't send through Windows Live Messenger. So, in typical me fashion, and completely without thinking I said, "Okay, so I'll zip it for you." Hmm. Let's see what's wrong with this statement. Zipping a program that's used to unzip files ... Yes, Windows does have its own utility for this, but it's so incredibly SLOW!!!! Sometimes I wonder ...
