Damn, as soon as I get done with my last post, my computer goes haywire again and I have to reinstall my OS again, and reload all of my software (which was a bitch!). Which I hope explains my silence as SWOP goes on to argue that you can’t really limit free speech and still say it is free. Interesting, that’s what I was saying the entire time in that Venezuela-RCTV post they had up a couple weeks earlier.
Not to mention, I still need to address what’s going on now with the Paseo extension and grade-gate. I’ve gotta say, I never thought I’d find anything that would convince me that Mayor Chavez should take control of APS. Congratulations Superintendent Everett, you’ve convinced me.
Hand it over to Mayor Chavez. His system of governance can’t be any worse than yours.
Speaking of SWOP…
Ah, I love it when a plan comes together.
It’s nice to see that the folks at SWOP have come around to my way of looking at free speech. I don’t want to say “I told you so guys” but, ya know, I told ya so. 🙂

I am a customer advocate here at Dell headquarters. I just found this post and wanted to see if you needed any help with your computer.
While I don’t know the details of what has happened, if an OS reinstall did not fix it then I would highly recommend running the Dell diagnostics to see if there is a hardware problem. You can run them from the F12 boot menu (at the Dell splash screen just after powering on the computer). If that doesn’t work (the 32Mb diagnostic partition has to be intact on the hard drive) you can run them by booting from the Dell Drivers & Utilities (aka Resource) CD.
If you would like additional help I can be reached by email at email@example.com (with ‘ATTN: Larry (NetNews54)’ in the subject). Hopefully everything will work and you won’t need my help, but if you do just let me know.
