Will you post some more?

Stupid spammers. I get these “comments” a few times a day. It’s always some variant of something like this (which I got today):

Hi! I like your srticle and I would like very much to read some more information on this issue. Will you post some more?

Some of them put google.com as their trackback URL. Some put their stupid weight loss blog. Spammers are lame.

Dell Wireless 1505 Wireless-N Mini-card is junk

Just a follow-up to my last post. I spent $18 on eBay to get an Intel 4965 wireless card. Of course I was 100% right in my assessment of Dell’s incompetence. And Dell was 100% wrong in their diagnosis of a “software issue” that was somehow my fault. No doubt I would have spent substantially more than $18 to have some buffoon come out and tell me that things are “stable” (as they often are for a few minutes at a time) only to have it all crap out again.

It’s unfortunate that Dell seems to have created a business model out of sending out crappy failing equipment, blaming the user for issues, and then charging “consulting” fees to have someone come out and “fix” it. Fortunately I’m a little handy with these things and I was able to do without their fix. Still a great machine. Even greater with consistently working WiFi.
