Sorry for not posting last night. We have been having laptop issues again. Please do not get me started on Dell. I'm never buying one again. We have had to have this computer reformatted twice, just had to have a replacement AC adapter sent (yesterday's issue), and now have an issue where when you are typing, the cursor will just randomly jump up to a different line and all of a sudden you are typing in a completely different paragraph. I have to look when I type. Grr.
We have been having issues with the AC adapter for a long time in that it was no longer charging the battery, so we had to keep it plugged in all the time. Then, yesterday, it wouldn't work at all, meaning it wasn't even registering as plugged in and the little green light on the adapter wouldn't come on. The battery was already mostly run down, so after about an hour, no more laptop power of any kind. (Oh man, the cursor has jumped about ten times writing this paragraph... I'm seriously about to throw this computer across the room).
Oh, did I mention we bought this computer in January??? Yeah, that's right. All of those problems, and it's only nine months old.
So, anyway I'm done with Dell. (And PLEASE don't even talk to me about having to get over-the-phone technical support and not being able to understand a word of what the tech is saying. And I'm a language person, people. I dig an accent. But if your job is helping English speaking people with technical problems that they don't really understand in the first place, you need to be able to speak English well enough that you can be understood. What is the deal with that???)
Take my advice. Win the lottery. Buy a Mac.
And have you seen that Wonderful Pistachios commercial with Levi Johnston? I'm not even going to post it here because I think it's in such bad taste. It makes me want to throw up in my mouth a little bit.
Okay, I've reached my rant quota for the day. I'm finished.
I must now restrain myself from throwing my computer over the deck railing. Into the driveway. And then going out to my car and backing over it. And then pulling the car forward and recrushing it. And then picking up all the pieces and running them through a paper shredder. And then taking the dust and flushing it down the toilet.
I haven't been out of the house since Monday.
