going without computer

It seems I will be without a computer for between 5-15 days if I want my brand new yet broken  computer fixed.  I am so pissed off I am not going to say another word except A) NEVER buy anything you need to rely on from Office Depot, particulary at the Ayalon Mall in Ramat Gan and B) avoid HP products like the plague.

    I bought my netbook from Office Depot and so far it is OK, however to say the truth, I haven’t made heavy use of it.

    About avoiding HP products – I fully agree. Starting from printers. Glass ceiling breakthrough of Carly Fiorina withstanding.

    Looks like it is not that good idea to put a disadvantaged minority in a top level position of responsibility just to affirm equality of opportunities – Barak Obama is another example.

    That is so bad. Did you ask them if you can use a loaner as it is needed for work? Try contacting HP directly and presenting your case. I buy all my office supplies and equipment from Office Depot…. but not anymore! I’ll switch over to Staples or Office Max immediately.

    I used to buy HP products until the day it was obvious that the company preferred people buy new rather than upgrade (I’m in the States so don’t know about Israel). The next purchase and the one after was a Dell. Twill always be so. And laptops? I will replace the Sony with an Apple if needed.

    You might be in the period where you are allowed to send back your notebook and get a refund for it?

    In any case, a brand new computer should never have this kind of problems. They might have sold you a refurbished one. Ask for a refund if you have this option!

    See Peres in action!!!! He releases murderers of Israelis with blood on their hands!!!!
    Read “Peres Commutes Sentences of Seven Israeli Arab Terrorists” at http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/159351#.UDvzsKNOySo
    WHO with a rational mind could do such an action?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Completely unrelated topic, but I thought you might like to see this and think about doing something similar: http://www.ted.com/talks/pam_warhurst_how_we_can_eat_our_landscapes.html?awesm=on.ted.com_i78k
    Also, I saw that our local ‘matnas’ in herzilia has advertised community vegetable plots that people can use – why don’t you check if your local matnas has something similar, and if not, perhaps they could look into setting something up (they could speak to other matnasim in the country to see how to do it)

    Nicole awesome video!!!! Really, really seriously cool.

    But yeah, in this area of major religious land I don’t think the matnas (we do have one Larry but it is 100% devoted to torah education related events, helping to observe the holidays correctly etc) is the place to turn.

    It’s not easy at all to garden unless you are lucky enough to have good soil and weather. Even just good soil…. and then manage with irrigation and shade cloths, etc…. but when you don’t have good soil, it’s pretty hopeless. It takes a lot to get soil in the shape to grow things. It really does.
