HAHA! Stupid tech support told my my computer wasn`t working cause my power supply was bad. WRONG. Then, after making me take apart my computer piece by piece, (to see how many times it would beep when I pressed the power button,) they switch me to their supply department (where they think they can make me hold for another half hour.) After taking it to a local repair place, I find I can`t just replace the power supply cause only a PROPRIETARY Dell ps will fit in a PROPRIETARY Dell case, as will my PROPRIETARY motherboard.

So I buy a new case, mb, ps and processor (cause that`s what actually died.)

The moral of the story, children, is this: You cannot diagnose someone`s computer over the phone from the other side of the planet (their tech support is in India, if you didn`t know) by having them pull out their video card and saying "How many lights are there now?"

Dell still mails me catalogs. ;-)

Yeah what he said. Wtf. If it`s true, they should be able to say it. Pepsi tasting better than coke is opinion anyway, this is more factual, if it`s faster, that`s a fact.

Their next ad should have something to do with the cry-baby nature of those that opposed these ads.

Okay now that got me a good laugh.

It`s bad Cindy, because its a shot at a competitor. Can`t get away with that. It`s a bannable offense :-P.

Why would that not be allowed? Its not like they have hardcore porn or intense cursing. I like them, and think its clever.
