I get to go computer shopping! Whether we actually can purchase what I'd like, I don't know, but I'm a little psyched.
One thing I require is a CDRW. I think it's silly to have computers without CDRW drives. These machines would be for use where needed. Right now, for me, where needed screams staff.
Someone managed to make the Google toolbar frickin' huge in Safari. So I made it go away. Granted, it was just because it was annoying the patron who comes in to shop on ebay, but hey.
So where have you all gotten your computers from? I'm looking locally and thinking Gateway. Our Dells have been faithful (although I've heard horror stories) but I really like Gateway's packages. Of course, the most annoying patron in the world suggested PCs For Everyone, who is local, and I'll be damned if they don't use what looks to be pretty good parts. I have a soft spot for ASUS motherboards. I was investigating them when Horizon broke again.
So what am I doing on my lunch hour? LISNewsing and checking out PCs For Everyone.
