Posted by CKL @ 10:53 AM PST

This morning, Dell Computer Corporation tells me: "We have reviewed your order. Although we had anticipated being able to ship your order sooner [today, in fact -CKL], we are experiencing an unexpected delay. We will not be able to ship your order until, on or before 2/24/2003. We apologize for this inconvenience and are doing everything we can to get your order out to you as quickly as possible." No problem, dude! I'm going on a computer-free weekend getaway tonight, I received my new copy of Red Hat 8.0 yesterday, and I can sync my PalmPilot to my girlfriend's WinXP box, wirelessly. Come to think of it, do I really need another computer? Maybe I'll just cancel my order, dude! Huh? What do you think of that, dude? Okay, I have to stop saying "dude" now.

First of all, you need to realize that the email you recieved is a legal document. When you order a a GREAT product that is being custom built for you, sometimes you need a little patience. OR you could just go to WalMart and just buy a piece of crap that's been sitting there for a year.
