I just wasted 3 hours of my life trying to debug this POS Dell box running Vista. I've had it for 2 months and it has sucked big time. I find myself at Fry's playing around with the iMacs more frequently. I am giving serious consideration to taking the leap and filing for divorce from Bill Gates. (No, I don't want to dick around with Linux because iTunes is central to my daily computing requirements.)
ObamaCare is in the news, and everyone has an opinion. You know what? The payment system for medical care in the US is broken. I know that the present system isn't really free enterprise and it is subject to massive government interference. I know that illegals swamp our emergency rooms. I know that socialized medicine results in rationed medical care. So what? All I do is look at the bottom line, which tells me that my cost for medical insurance increases 15-20% each and every year, even though my kids and I have no pre-existing conditions.
The system is broken. Everyone know this. At this point I don't care how the hell it's fixed, just fix it. The socialists win? Fine. Whatever. Otherwise, give me a better alternative.
