Dead Computer

Sorry for the lack of action here. My T40 died last weekend. Not that I can't post from a variety of other places, but the enormous disruption has completely changed my communication habits. I have to use generically configured desktops at school, fight with the variety of separate email accounts I manage, do without mobile internet access, etc. etc. Its a real hassle.

On the other hand, I've taken this opportunity to create a detailed account of the service that I've experienced from the school's computer store. For starters, I wasn't pleased to find out that it took 1 week before they even looked at the machine. Then I really got miffed that they ignored my initial brilliance in diagnosing a hardware problem (the machine crashes when you move or shake it). Only after several failed attempts to upgrade the BIOS, did they send it to IBM.


To be continued...
