HP Support Blog: Day 21

close

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

This post was published more than 12 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

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

  • My views might very well have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; 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.
