RE: You Dirty Rats!

Silly boy.

 

You know darn well Humanity has
a love-hate relationship going with its computers. We’re dependent on
them, but they are incredibly frustrating at times. Roddy, for instance, is
truly emulating the uneven nature of her four-legged namesake. Both seem to try
to please, but both screw up almost daily. The “flat” Roddy is
frequently blue-screening without apparent cause. The blue screens are usually
so generic that not even Microsoft’s automated troubleshooting system can
offer a clue. Grr. Sooner or later, a clue will turn up.

“emptying a few M4 mags
into a Dell laptop does have a certain therapeutic value to it”

 

Therapeutic?  You got an
axe to grind with the
XFR D630 or what (I know you’re just kidding around).

So noted.

 

But nah, it takes more than a
tough-looking case to earn what’s called a MILSPEC rating. The testing
for the higher ratings is long, and sometimes downright “not nice.”
Hmm, the thought of emptying a few M4 mags into a Dell laptop does have a
certain therapeutic value to it.

Mr. Royall,

 

The Latitude XFR D630 is designed for comical and government
applications.  But, I personal think it will be mostly use by the military
in the field since it is a tough and robust system.

That’s a nice thought, but
Dell doesn’t seem to do that. Then again, this first model seems to be
strictly a business laptop, seeming a little light on performance.

Maybe they’d like you to test it out……….I
can’t think of many more rugged scenarios than you provide.

Yo Richard,

 

What’s this I hear about Dell entering the ruggedized
laptop market? Fine timing, Lucille (as in, “you picked a fine time to
leave me, Lucille)! Someday, I do wish Dell would show me what’s up their
coat sleeve before I buy my next laptop. J
I’m not adverse to reasonable NDAs

 

And yeah, you may consider this an opening to do an
informational “nano-plug” via my blog.

 

Scott
