love hate to nit-pick but, you know, Young Lawyer should be setting an example and trying to encourage attention to detail – not making copywriting faux pas.
I’m sure you can imagine my disappointment, dear reader, when the following email plopped into my inbox on Friday afternoon explaining how by ‘liking’ Young Lawyer’s Facebook pic, I could get my sorry ass in the prize draw for a Dell “Inspiration” laptop. Ahem.
Besides which, I’m not on Facebook and I don’t like things.
Why the hell am I still on their mailing list anyway. Ah, yes, I remember - so I can watch out for incidents like these.
Oh well. Blame it on the copywriter, I say. Bit stingy, though; the inspiron models are low-end and anything but inspiring.
Still, not all Dells are that bad. My desktop PC is an Dell XPS 630i dating from 2008 and still going like a trooper. It’s built like a tank and is remains one of my trusty workhorses (an American would add, “knock on wood” here).
After I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 in January 2010, the Nvidia driver didn’t support the changeable chassis lights any longer, so I’ve had to leave it on the default ice-blue ever since. Shame.
I also had to replace the graphics card this summer after the old SLI config it shipped with melted under the strain of me playing F1 2011 in my balmy office!!.
And yes, before anyone comments, I bet Lewis Hamilton doesn’t have to rely on wedging his pedals in position with a box file behind them. Still, it works for me.
