I'm glad you finally figured out the "greater than" and "less than" symbols. ;-)

Obama's recent votes and support for the Heller decision are drawing moderates and Independents, like me, toward him. Complain all you want, but moves like this might just win him the election.

Cypox, you're violating Wil's current web site motto (Don't be a dick!). Of course Wil is a geek, that's why we love him. He knows computers and he is passionate about technology and poker and writing and scifi. That makes him a geek in my book. And, although it appears his technical abilities will never let him fix his main web site, and he will clearly be in exile forever, he is still one of the coolest geeks I know. However, you sir, are a dick!

I'd like to lend a bit of support to Deens7. I like Wil, I like his blog, I like his take on Trek, poker, and All Things Geek. But the political name-calling really gets to me, which is why his site fell off my "daily reads" list months ago. Wil can call O'Reilly a douchebag all he wants, but Deens7 is right -- he rarely backs it up with substance. Which leaves me to wonder, Why does everyone think Bill O'Reilly is a douchebag? Why does everyone HATE the Administration? Even if you disagree with them, policy-wise, it is just bad form to resort to name-calling. I almost completely disagree with Wil, politically, yet I never call him a douchebag in my blog. :-) I would just request that Wil inject a modicum of civility into his discourse. That is all.

I like Apple customer support. There are a few bad apples in the bunch (sorry, had to), but corporate will take care of you. My iBook died last year, still under the AppleCare 3 year warranty period. I sent it in for repair, but they told me there was brown gunk on the logic board and I had clearly spilled something on it, so they were going to charge me $700 or so to fix it. After much anger, I decided to just buy a new Powerbook from the Apple Store, but I also sent a letter to sjobs@apple.com (without my phone number or anything). Well, a few days later I got a PHONE call from someone in the corporate office, saying Mr. Jobs had forwarded my e-mail to him, and they want to make this right. They fixed my iBook free of charge AND let me hold onto my Powerbook for a few days past the 2 week return date so that I could have a computer during my final exams, while my iBook was in the shop! I then returned it a few days later with no problems. With its elegant design and fun software, Apple had already secured a customer for life. But this example of stunning customer service really cemented it, and ensured that I tell *everyone* about my great experience with Apple.
