    Clean Your Damn Computer!

    Looking at those photos, I see stuff like that all the time in dealing with home users. People get pissed off and wonder why their machine always shuts down or freezes. They always state how much the machine is a pos. When I open it up and show them it's completely clogged with dirt and cobwebs...

    What Did You Get For Christmas?

    Had a pretty shitty Christmas, but not because of the gifts. I did get the one thing that I asked for, a Rockwell Sonicrafter Tool. Also a Dilbert day calendar, Steelers money clip, Steelers keychain/fingernail clippers, $25 BB gc, Steelers blanket, Harley Blanket, Chia garden, and USB drink...

    capture of wireless info

    to the point: my daughter is 15, and always on her laptop. Her grades have fallen, and as a father, I am concerned about her online activities. Is there a way to capture her wireless traffic to monitor where she goes and to capture her user-names and passwords. Yes, I do want to access her email...

    Disgusting Computer Award

    I definitely see worst than that a lot. I work with a company that contracts with Dell, so I see a lot of machines. That is not as dirty as half of the machines, not to mention how many times I open a machine and it's filled with roaches. I won't even send the parts back. I usually toss them...

    Dell Must Defend Suit Alleging Defective Notebooks

    Any idea to which model? I am a service tech that covers Dell's machines. I am willing to bet that it is the Inspiron line of 1100, 1150, 5100, 5150 and 5160. Those machines used the desktop P4's and always had heat issues. Since I have purchased at least 1 of these machines, I should be included.

    Verizon Cuts Service to Alleged Pirates

    What about the ETF? Can verizon cut you off and then force you to pay those fees? Remember, they just raised the fees on the 17th, so now it is $360! I wonder if they timed it to wait for the increase.

    I Hate Dell

    On support with american tech right now. 1-2 min on hold before he answered. I explain situation and parts that I need. Told to give him 2-3 to find and order parts. This is how it should work. If I had the indian call center, I would still be giving him my DCSE number. They are supposed to...

    I Hate Dell

    none of my monitors have the sticker for the service tag. I have replaced monitors for customers, and none of them ever had tags. I guess they finally starting using them on the monitors as well. brom42 How new are those?

    I Hate Dell

    I always recommend getting the tech's ID number at the beginning of each call. They all have them, even if they claim they don't. I have filed many complaints against these boneheads that terminate the calls, or who just don't have any common sense. That is why it is important to get their...

    I Hate Dell

    Dell is also now offering a service that you can speak to an American tech support person. Pricing starts at $149 for a year. This is such bullshit. They seem to prey on older people. I hate it when I go into a persons house and they tell me that they paid for this service.

    I Hate Dell

    yeah, try to redeem a gift card through them. It will automatically become expired prior to using it. I had to file a complaint with the bbb. Then all of a sudden, my phone was blowing up from them calling ME non stop. It did finally get resolved, after a few weeks. Being a certified rep for...

    Craigslist Says Reduction In Erotic Ads is Working

    They need to have phone number and credit card authorizations for selling auto's and bikes. Way too many scams. I played around with some of the scammers, and I can see how someone could fall for their trap. A lot of the stuff looks authentic. I even had a seller set up what looks like an ebay...

    Thermaltake SpinQ, A1VX and BigTyp 14 Pro @ [H]

    I don't think that is an error. I believe that Thermaltake count each "side" as separate units. That is how they get 12. Shady IMO.

    Thermaltake SpinQ, A1VX and BigTyp 14 Pro @ [H]

    I just received my Big Typhoonv VX today in the mail. Couldn't beat the price, less than $20 on thermaltake's website under the refurbished section. Not a mark on it or any indication of it being used or refurbished. The box was a little wrinkled on top, that is it. After seeing the reviews, I...

    opinion am I being a dick?

    I had an ultra die on me about a month ago. They shipped it out next day. Once I received the new ps, I had to ship the old one back, on their dime. Now, I did need to give them my cc, but I will receive a credit after 15 days.

    Ultra Responds To Incorrect PSU Label Issue

    They need to do a complete recall of all 750w X2 power supplies. They should know where at least 80% of these power supplies are located, due to product registration. The other 20% would be items sold with builds or ebay etc. They should not make the consumer wait to have an issue, or hope that...

    Is Your Ultra 750W X2 PSU Really a 550W?

    What sucks is that the uneducated consumer is the one who loses. I wonder how many other power supplies by ultra have similar false labels? I would have considered the higher end ultra power supplies for my next build, but not now at any price.
