Well, I tried.
The new computer always presented problems. The DELL guys tried to fix it using remote assistance, and nothing. The most they could do was to maximize the Intel video card (onboard), but the ATI (offboard) remained not responding. The guys from DELL came and changed my main board with the video boards, and now my whole computer SUCKS! It has been restarting out of the blue, the video presents several problems constantly, lots of error messages pop up, the computer freezes, sometimes it doesn't turn on, and it didn't even recognized the power source once (so far... it happened about 30 minutes ago). So yes, DELL SUCKS and if you are considering buying one, DON'T! They have a stupid rule that if a part of the computer isn't working you have 30 days to complain, but after that, they wash their hands. Now if the user break, let the computer fall or pour liquids on it, then it's all fine, because they replace the damaged piece. How awesome is that? So fuck you Dell! Fuck your ridiculous assistance, your fucking "total care" (total my ass), fuck your screwed up products! They prolly put used boards in my new computer. Some that they retrieved from another customer and "fixed". Seriously, there is no other explanation.
I can say fuck you as much as I want to, because this computer has been fucking with my patience since September. So yeah, consider this as a payback for all the time, effort, and sleepless hours trying to fix your cheap products. IF YOU ARE GOING TO ADD TWO VIDEO CARDS, PLEASE DO IT RIGHT! IF A CUSTOMER COMPLAINS IT IS NOT WORKING, PLEASE FIX IT INSTEAD OF SCREWING IT MORE!
I hate DELL right now! HATE it!
Anyways, I'm done.
I'm gonna blog all items I received in the last ten days and that's it. I'm not making any drama, and I'm not an attention-whore. I just like to share with friends, and right now I need to vent. I'm just letting you know that my "new" computer sucks and I can't make pictures, and also that I'm facing lots of problems in RL and I just can't spend hours trying to take a snapshot, and get all pissed off because of the stupid computer.
So I'm gonna focus on RL now on. I'm not leaving SL, although I'm always AFK - have always been and always will lol! So if I don't reply, please drop a notecard, because this computer is rebooting every now and then, and chances are that I'm gonna miss your IM.
I'll keep blogging till Christmas. Thank you all for your support. Thank you designers and readers! Thank you for all the friends I made, and all great people I met. I hope meet more great people inworld.
I'll resign around Christmas, but don't worry, I'll send a goodbye note to all designers, owners of blogger groups, and readers. But not today. I'm too busy cussing.
P.S.: Apparently Dell is gonna run some more tests then replace the boards AGAIN! So whichever end this story gets, I'm fed up with all of it. I don't care, and I'm not changing my mind. Dell still SUCKS. BIG TIME!
