And now I'm 34 minutes into waiting for one of our sales reps to show up so a conference call can start with a prospective client. No-showing a demo is bad form, sales dude.
He showed up like 2 minutes later. Turns out he just told me the wrong time. The prospective client dialed in at the time he told them and he was there a few seconds later and instead of 10:00 it should have been 10:45. Not as bad as I originally thought but still a colossal waste of time.
In other news, I'm building a Trinity-powered A8 desktop for my wife. Her laptop is randomly rebooting, I replaced the hard drive because it had what it thinks are bad sectors (though it scans clean with Sea Tools when plugged into my PC) and I've run multiple passes of memtest86 and the memory passes them all. Anyway, it's a first-gen Core i3 350M so it's probably due for an upgrade. She doesn't take the computer anywhere so she's getting an mATX desktop with plenty of power to run The Sims and play on Pinterest.
I had to buy a monitor and instead of just buying a cheap 1080p monitor for her (she'll get my ASUS LED-backlit TN panel), I popped $20 extra and got one of those budget Dell IPS displays
from Newegg, and the monitor arrived today. Just eye-popping color. Wowza. I knew the SAMOLED on my HTC One S looked nice, but this puts everything I've ever used to shame. After a couple hours, I'm a believer.
