A poor workman always blames his tools !
amenditman posted a topic in All Things WindowsThe Redmond crew is further alienating their greatest competitive advantage in the PC marketplace, their OEM partners. I think all the sharp marketing folks over there have either left the building or are running for cover with this one. It's going to be very hard in today's market to recover the level of participation and cooperation the Microsoft OEM Partner system once used to dominate the PC world.
Bad Hardware Day
V.T. Eric Layton posted a topic in HardwareYou've heard of having a bad hair day? Well, today was a bad hardware day for me. First my HP DVD writer started making ugly spindle motor sounds and would not read a disk, then a little later my 12 year old HP printer jammed up and broke a print head transport drive belt. Fortunately, thanks to the fact that I hoard used stuff out in my shop, I had a replacement DVD writer and an exact same model printer to replace these faulty ones with. Ain't hoarding great? All's well now. Sad about the old printer, though. She sure was a good little machine (Deskjet 842C). I bought it in 2000. It was the very first printer I ever bought brand new from a store. Nothing lasts forever, I s'pose. I definitely got my $119.00 out of it.
