Miss-fortune teller

Don't count on this disappointing numerology program.

Head Numerologist promises a small collection of tools for telling fortunes, but, overall, it left us with a lot of disappointment. With its confusing layout and questionable results, we never felt comfortable with it.

We thought the developers made an unfortunate error in judgment in designing Head Numerologist because its text-based layout reminded us of computer programs from the pre-Windows, pre-GUI, Bad old days of the 1980s. Since all commands are keyboard based, the mouse was useless, and the program doesn't provide a Help file instruction manual, either. Despite these challenges, we were able to use the program's few basic functions, such as making predictions, queries, and match-making. You simply fill in your name and birthday, and Head Numerologist tells you your fortune in vague answers that might seem prescient, if you're inclined to place faith in them, which of course is the secret to fortune-telling. One fun addition was an option to help find lost items. We filled in the appropriate fields and were given advice, though it was predictably wrong. While Head Numerologist offers a description of numerology, it provides no basis for its answers, which left us wondering about its accuracy. This program was one stumble after another and never allowed us to feel it was making worthwhile predictions. That seriously cut into the fun, which is just about all any fortune-teller is good for.

Head Numerologist is freeware. It installs desktop icons without permission. With its uncomfortable layout and questionable results, we can't recommend this program.
