OK, some people have finally lost it. Brought to my attention by the post at http://www.edbott.com/weblog/?p=1307, trackback attached to this post, a small website called Explorer Destroyer is calling for discrimination against IE users. Bah, I say. If someone wants to switch to Firefox, they will. But blocking IE completely (this is Level 3 in the script) and forcing a Firefox download to view a site is crazy. And the site owner gets money for causing their visitors undue aggravation! One dollar for every referral. I smell conspiracy. Update (12/12/07): I’ve revisited this opinion in a .
Hmm… My laptop recently “recovered” from a “failure” of the keyboard. It stopped working one day, but when I started it up again six days later the keyboard problem had vanished. Mysterious… My dad thinks I have a latent hardware problem…
I think Dell has forgotten about my email. They have yet to respond. Fortunately, the crack hasn’t gotten bigger, so I guess I don’t need Dell to respond after all.
OK, I’ve sent Dell an email detailing my complaints. I had to dig through several site levels to find the form, but I managed. Now I’ll just have to wait for a response. I hope they’ll still talk to me.
Hmm, my coursework has incorporated a “QTVR” component, and IE crashes whenever I try to use it. Error in “mshtml.dll.” Grr… I hope that content’s not essential.
Forget buying a laptop. Ever. At least if it has a certain “pattern” to the hinges at the screen-body intersection. I’ve found that “—-___________———————————–___________—-” (“-” is on the screen bottom and “_” is on the body) does not hold up. I just got my PC repaired, and it’s now out of warranty, but I think it’s starting to crack again, after less than 3 months!!! That’s great! Now it’s time to start shopping for another computer…
I got an HP iPAQ (model hx2755) last October, and it’s been great. Now, with no settings modifications or any other provocation, the Wi-Fi has suddenly stopped connecting to networks. I am open to any comments.
