* So yeah, I freaked out and was all "THIS IS NOT MY BEAUTIFUL LAPTOP!" Hotter was all "so?" and I was all "I just...don't claim it's the same system is all! This thing doesn't even have the same kind of DVD drive! Did they just not expect me to NOTICE?" He said probably they EXPECTED me to be grateful. Clearly neither Hotter nor Dell know who they are dealing with!
* All kidding aside, I *am* grateful. It just rubs me the wrong way that Dell wouldn't SAY "here, your laptop was a lost cause, have this shiny new one!"
* The perceptive among you may have noticed I'm still posting from The Precious. That's because Dell shipped me a new computer with the old (borked) hard drive in it. And shipped me a new hard drive separately. A technician is coming tomorrow to do the switcheroo and then--THEN--I will have a computer again!
* How are all of YOU?
