HP Support Blog: Day 21

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Three weeks, now. No contact from HP today, and (of course) no laptop, despite the promises given on Monday.

Another update tomorrow, no doubt. Frankly, even in my least optimistic moments, I didn’t expect the repair to take this long, and I’m starting to get fed up with it clogging up the blog. But, amusingly, searching Google for HP Support Blog now has this site as the top result – just above, erm, HP’s support blog. If nothing else, that’s an achievement, and should help potential consumers to realise that their overpriced extended support warranties really do not seem to deliver.

I'm not taking comments on my blog any more, so I'm afraid the opportunity to add to this discussion has passed.
