Dell Warns of Vista Upgrade Challenges

Nijika Re:hmmm ... (287 comments)

Or is it a hedge against a rush of demand with supply failing causing clients to go to other sources than Dell? Imagine you've got 1000000 computers and 2000000 sticks of 512MB RAM. Then comes Vista. That's an oversimplification, but I believe it's also quite valid. It would be better to stagger the upgrades than lose clients to other vendors that might have the supplies to serve demands faster.

I am so very right.

Nijika Nijika writes  |  more than 8 years ago Sometimes I think I'm too harsh, or maybe I'm judging people unfairly when I hear incessant tales of particular job woe.

I seem to end up thinking "yo, don't like the job? Why are you sitting there then?" After that I think "well, maybe they're stuck." And then I think, "last time I was stuck, I got unstuck all by myself."

It's a matter of resolve. It's a matter of fucking standing up for yourself. It's the difference between being a self-defined person versus being Gil from the Simpsons.

Luck favors the prepared, darling.


Wi-Fi Cameras? Not X10!

Nijika Nijika writes  |  more than 9 years ago Tom's Hardware guide has a write up on new Wi-Fi enabled cameras by Nikon and Kodak. Seems like it could either be a breakthrough feature or a very, very silly feature. Personally I can wait to plug in to get my pics, but that's just me.
