It's now approx 417 hours later and we're no closer to having a working system. This is impacting my business. Dell had a stellar reputation with me for service, now it's falling apart. They can't make a simple repair, what can I count on them for? I paid a premium, as a business user with limited time, to protect against exactly this kind of foul-up.

NY Times: A picture is worth a thousand words. For ten points, who's Bill Clinton's hugging partner? Here's the rest of the story.
