If you have been waiting to purchase PrimalScript, this is the best time.

Is Flash Evil? Will it ever end!

This was inspired by a slashdot article the other day

Can’t find the problem, say there isn’t one–that’s the Compaq way

My computer is still broken–it broken when I was at MAX, right before my preso. I took it in to CompUSA where I bought it (at the time I had to get it same day, so ordering online wasn’t an option) for service and they sent it in to Compaq. Before sending it in they confirmed the computer wouldn’t boot.

Apparently Compaq looked at it, didn’t find a problem, and sent it back marked not reproducible. The computer doesn’t boot. How can you not reproduce this problem? So CompUSA is sending it again back to Compaq and I’m still without a laptop.

The list of companies and products I won’t use is getting longer now… CompUSA, Compaq, HP, Toshiba. I should probably just stick with an abacus, they don’t break.
