I finally bit the bullet and ordered a new laptop. 2.0 Ghz Core 2 Duo with 2 GB RAM, 256 MB video RAM, and a 80 GB hard drive (not counting my external one) should take care of my needs for a long while.

Revolt Against Telemenu Day My advice to this person is to never ever call Dell’s customer support. Telemenu hell followed by a barely-decipherable phone conversation from a poorly trained person in Bangalore. (@ the art of debt)

How To Pay Off A Boatload of Debt Quickly To add to that impressive list, I was able to eliminate about $9,000 in high-interest credit card debt in about seven months. I used some of the ideas from this article… hmm… maybe I should write my own. (@ free money finance)

There Should Be A Pill To Make People Stop Spending My first dumb reaction to this was that there already is a pill for this: Valium.

Even dumber: I first thought this subject referred to a bill to make people stop spending. (@ the tao of making money)

  1. Whats really sad is it’s not much better for the employees here in the states. My husband and I both worked for dell for years, met there in fact. Us trying to call or transfer to our own customer service or tech support…..hell on earth I say. Just plain awful!
