Never buy an Acer computer

Monday, August 31st, 2009

I’ve owned a lot of computers over the years.  My first was an Apple II.  I skipped over the whole Commodore craze.  Then came my Apple IIe, and then a Compaq Deskpro.  That silly computer lasted me some 14 years, over a billion words of novels and medical transcripts.  It was still working when I […]
