Tweak-o-Matic is a tool for MS Windows that’s somewhere between TweakUI and Group Policy — it lets you change some of the same settings as TweakUI and push them to remote computers. The download page is one of the funniest I’ve seen in a long time (and definitely the funniest on any Microsoft product ever). Here’s a sample:
Warning: Don’t ever change a value in the registry. Ever. We know we just told you to do that, but would you jump off a cliff if we told you to? Don’t ever change a value in the registry. Don’t even say the word registry. We know a guy once who said the word registry, and three days later he was hit by a bus. True story. As a matter of fact, you shouldn’t even have a registry on your computer. If you suspect that you do have a registry on your computer, call us and a trained professional will be dispatched to your office to remove the registry immediately. If you accidentally touch the registry, wash your hands with soap and water and call a doctor. Do not swallow the registry or get it in your eyes!
Tweakomatic is Fully Guaranteed and Supported, Right?
Hey, let’s be serious. This thing is called Tweakomatic. Can you imagine this scenario:
“Microsoft Product Support. How may I help you?”
“Uh, yes, I seem to be having some problems with my Tweakomatic.“
In other words, no, Tweakomatic is not fully guaranteed and supported; in fact, it isnt even partially guaranteed and supported.
