    My current computer is starting to struggle for the office...

    Bought a larger and new one....it arrived couple days ago.

    I started to clean up the current one and transfer files to external hard drives and dropbox....

    Got it all pretty close on the transfer and clean up and back up...

    Open the box....not really sure there should be so much glass falling out of the box :eekk::hopeless::madder:

    It didn't look damaged on the boxes but it had to have been tossed....the glass was from a cover on the side of the computer...and the internals were also all falling out!
    I even paid extra for it to be shipped earlier...

    Now new replacement will be here around the 18th :(

    And....also waiting for a new transmission from GM for the new Butler "Christine" off the line....:(

    Major updates....and a recall I have heard might be coming too.... :errf:

    and today....day of crazy and large jobs...will be done around 1 am....:yawn:

    Nothing yet....since they haven't shipped it and it is sitting in a Warehouse in California...

    But boy, did I lay into them the other night....they were blowing smoke up my a$$ about it not being ready...blah....blah...blah....

    then suddenly....I get a notice about 5 minutes after hanging up the phone with them and telling them I am going to refuse it and purchase a new one from someone else....oh surprise...it suddenly left the warehouse....

    This is what it ordered...

    Nice....Good luck.

    Ditch that funky keyboard for a nice wireless one with LED backlit keys and a nice number pad.
