Introducing more of our Ghostware Products and their teams


My name is Anel Kirstein, I have led a varied life. I started my journey in Kloof, Natal. I studied Public Relations Management in Durban after matric (Kloof High School). Kloof was a little town, "A Dorpie" if you like and having worked part-time for 6 years at the Kloof Country Club ... meant everyone knew me, or I knew them! It got worse when I tried my hand at journalism for our local paper, it's a good thing I am a people person because I decided to get free dvd's...dinners and holidays as a feature article and review writer.

I loved it!! My adventurous spirit has always ensured that my life is varied, as soon as I could afford a plane ticket I took to London's hub on my first leg of "World exploration". I stayed for 3 years before moving to Edinburgh. Edinburgh is a city that still fascinates me, I am in awe of its mystery and splendour alas often covered in a sleepy mist with a ghostly hollow! After 7 years heart decided it was time to come back home.

South Africa was always part of me and there was a longing that only my permanent return could dissolve. I have been home for 2 years now. I decided to be in Johannesburg so that I could be close enough to my mother's fabulous cooking skills.

I bought a flat in Bryanston and scouted long and hard for a company that resonates with my passion and flair for life. I always believe that you have a choice in this life, live it passionately with a solution driven approach or stay dull, lifeless. Korbitec have the most exceptional product called GhostPractice. It's the new FaceBook of the attorney world, giving all staff whether fee earner, secretary or bookkeeper the most amazing business tools to manage their entire firm. I am not an attorney, a bookkeeper or a guru in financial business management but I see my clients lighting up on viewing GhostPractice, I see them managing their firms, spinning more revenue amidst a damp marketplace.
This warms my heart and it makes me feel that my product can make a real tangible difference. Exciting stuff!!!

Husband 101

Letter to Complaint Department:
Last yeas I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed that the new program began making unexpected changes to the accounting software, severely limiting access to wardrobe, flower, and jewelry applications that operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. No mention of this phenomenon was included in the in the product brochure.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalls many other valuable programs such as DinnerDancing 7.5, CruiseShip 2.3, and OperaNight 6.1 and installs new, undesirable programs such as PokerNight 1.3, SaturdayFootball 4.0, Golf 2.4 and ClutterEverywhere 4.5. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and invariable crashes the system. Under no circumstances will it run DiaperChanging 14.1 or HouseCleaning 2.6. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix Husband 1.0, but this all purpose utility is of limited effectiveness. Can you help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Jane:

This is a very common problem women complain about, but is mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people upgrade from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 with no idea that Boyfriend 5.0 is merely an ENTERTAINMENT package. However Husband 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and was designed by its creator to rus as few applications as possible Further, you cannot purge Husband 1.0 and return to Boyfriend 5.0, because Husband 1.0 is not designed to do this. Hidden operating files within your system would cause Boyfriend 5.0 to emulate Husband 1.0, so nothing is gained. It is impossible to uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the system, once installed.

Any new program files can be installed once per year, as Husband 1.0 has severely limited memory. Error messages are common, and a normal part of Husband 1.0. In desperation to some of their "old time" favorite applications, or to get new applications to work, some women have tried to install Boyfriend 6.0, of Husband 2.0. However, these women end up with more problems than encountered with Husband 1.0. Look in your manual under "Warnings: Divorce/Child Support".

You will notice that this program runs very poorly, and comes bundled with HeartBreak 1.3
I recommend you keep Husband 1.0, and just learn the quirks of this strange and illogical system. Having Husband 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPFs). This is a wonderful feature of Husband 1.0, secretly installed by the parent company as an integral part of the operating system. Husband 1.0 must assume ALL responsibility for ALL faults and problems, regardless of root cause. To activate this great feature enter the command "C:\I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME" Sometimes Tears 6.2 must be run simultaneously while entering the command. Husband 1.0 should then run the applications Apologize 12.3 and Flowers/Chocolates 7.8.

Tech tip

Avoid excessive use of this feature. Overuse can create additional and more serious GPFs, and ultimately YOU may have to give a C:\APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal operations. Overuse can also cause Husband 1.0 to default to GrumpySilence 2.5, or worse yet, Beer 6.0. Beer 6.0 is a very bad program that causes Husband 1.0 to create FatBelly files and Snoring Loudly wave files that are very hard to delete.

Save yourself some trouble by following this tech tip Just Remember! The system will run smoothly, and take the blame for all GPFs, but because of this fine feature it can only inremittenly run all the applications Boyfriend 5.0 ran.

Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. Consider buying additional software to improve performance.
I personally recommend HotFood 3.0, Lingerie 5.3 and Patience 10.1. Used in conjunction, these utilities can really help keep Husband 1.0 running smoothly. After several years of use, Husband 1.0 will become familiar and you will find many valuable embedded features such as FixesBrokenThings 2.1, Sniggling 4.2 and BestFriend 7.6.

A final word of caution

Do NOT, under any circumstances, install MotherInLaw 1.0. This is not a supported application, and will cause selective shut down of the operation system. Husband 1.0 will run only fishing 9.4 and hunting 5.2 until MotherInLaw 1.0 is uninstalled. I hope these notes have helped. Thank you for choosing to install Husband 1.0 and we here at Tech Support wish you the best of luck in coming years. We trust you will learn to fully enjoy this fully enjoy this product.
