She says she has called Dell to request Windows instead however was talked out of it. Her current claim is that she was unaware that she couldn't install her Verizon online disk to access the Internet, nor could she use Microsoft Word to type up her papers. Local news station WKOW-27 has sided with her on this issue and written up quite the uninspiring news post here: http://www.wkowtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=9667184" top
stonedcat writes "Star Trek: Of Gods and Men is a three-part unofficial Star Trek fan mini-series, part one (http://www.startrekofgodsandmen.com/) has been released today in flash format, higher quality versions should follow. Directed by Tim Russ (Tuvok from Voyager) and featuring several former cast members from various Star Trek series this mini-series should be a fresh look at the Trek universe especially with the lack of any Star Trek series or Movies on the horizon. This mini-series has been compared by fans to Duke Nukem Forever with its many delays and it was thought to never see the light of day. With this release we can be assured that the film is no longer vapor ware or a pipe dream." Link to Original Source
