Shadow Shot Sunday
Cherokee Indian Proverb
1. In Friday afternoon's 'callback' from Dell Tech Support, I asked whether a bigger (more powerful) battery might solve my my 'dim (as in unreadable) monitor' when running on battery power ... since my Inspiron 1720 laptop essentially an expensive desktop at this point. Sean (Vinnie's supervisor) promised to 'research' the issue and share their findings in Wednesday afternoon's callback. Perhaps they'll find a 'fix' ... but I'm not holding my breath just yet.
2. My sister & I enjoyed our Friday afternoon together at South Coast Plaza ... 'facials' at Origins followed by an early dinner at Z'Tejas in South Coast Plaza where we shared cornbread with honey butter, Tostada Bites, and a Pecan Encrusted Chicken Spinach salad.
4. Based on my first two calls, I have high praise for Costco's Concierge Service and am wishing I'd purchased my Dell 1720 at Costco (as I could have) rather than online from Dell. I wouldn't have had to wait two & a half weeks for it to arrive initially ... I might have gotten better 'tech support' from the beginning and saved the money I just spent on the Sony Vaio. I'll share more
about the new laptop soon, but for the moment methinks I like it. Windows 7 looks a lot like Vista (so it's familiar at this point), the Vaio has some nifty features I've not experienced before, and it comes with2 years of Tech Support with a 3rd year provided by American Express since I used that card to pay for the notebook.
5. Saturday night I attended a Spring Concert sponsored by the Yale Club of Orange County featuring Dr. Jung-A Lee (an Organist who graduated from Yale in 2001) and 'the Whiffenpoofs of Yale' ... a delightfully entertaining A'Capella group. What a wonderful evening of music!
