It's not your computer any more.
The history of defect tracking databases in Windows.

Not directly, but maybe you can simulate it.

Settling into the new routine has its rough spots.
As much as anything is guaranteed to complete.

Once you buy a handle, it's yours to keep.
It still falls down, but for stranger reasons.
