Anne now has her own ‘blog: Anne’s Odd and Assorted Thoughts. Her first entry is a nice invective about some nasty computer problems she’s had with her Gateway laptop. While she’s trying everything to save her hard drive — calling tech support, reformatting her disk, etc — Gateway’s marketing department apparently had the terminity to call her to she how’s she’s getting along with her year-old purchase. Oops! Did she have something to say to them! Apple did something similar to me during my interminable cord crises. I let them know exactly what I thought about certain design elements. And I didn’t even have the hinge problem yet.

Read it and be sure to say happy birthday to her mom!
