Now On Video

The Scene: DEPW and Rome Girl researching articles on camcorders for a consumer reports type site.

DEPW: "You know, after we get done with "Best Camcorders For Travel" we should really do one on "Best Camcorders For Amateur Porn" since that's what most people use camcorders for."

Rome Girl: "No they don't! That's a very small minority! Most people use them for normal things."

DEPW: "Normal things like fucking."

Rome Girl: "Look, I know in your world there is no such thing as a normal functioning nuclear family, but in the real world people give these things away as college graduation presents and to take pictures of their kids blowing out birthday candles."

DEPW: "Before using them to video their wives blowing something else later on that night."

Rome Girl: "You are fucking crazy."

MAC Update

Rome Girls MAC was supposed to be fixed last Tuesday. Then she called on Wednesday and they said they'd have it done by Thursday and call her. She just called them and they say it's still not ready because they need to get one more part in.

The repair guy is only there on Tuesdays and Thursdays so it won't be until at least Tuesday and probably Thursday that she gets her machine back. And, they haven't even offered to give her a loaner computer - which you think they would given that they are charging 390 euros to fix the fucking thing.

At this point I'm no longer annoyed at the expense - I just want her to get the thing back, because she's been working on our six year old backup computer that has 512 megs of RAM and it takes her forever to get anything done.

Of course, if we'd just spent the 400 euro on a new machine last week, we wouldn't have this problem, but I'm not going to let that get me down.

I am not impressed by Apple in any way, shape or form. I hope the I-Pad bankrupts them.
