We found a penny on our walk this morning
The current weather is cloudy

The topic: Buh bye old Dell


After two weeks of trying to get the Dell up to speed, and not having much luck, I finally gave up yesterday afternoon.  Reading from any of the external drives (CD/RW or zip) is sporadic and when it doesn’t want to work, it hangs.  I can’t shut down properly to get out of it, using task manager is little help.

Explorer just quits working.  I’ve started from scratch four times now and I’m not going to do it again.

Last night, we went to Circuit City and picked up computer. Now I just have to decide where to put it, as it's bigger than the Dell.


Well, guess what?  The computer that was in the box is not the computer that the box said was in it.  Oh, sure, the markings on the computer itself proclaim it to be the computer I paid for, but it wasn’t the computer. Well, maybe it was, it just wasn’t complete.  I called Circuit City online (the local store wasn’t answering the phone yet, even though supposedly it’d been opened for forty-five minutes) and they said to call Hewlett Packard.  And of course, I got an accented support tech at HP who said that “all computers are complete when they’re shipped” and to call Circuit City.

I know this was bullcrap because I was the first one to open the box.  The shipping label was across where the box tops met and it was intact.

So, when Brian gets home, we’re going back to the store.
