Screwed By Dell
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:16 pm)

Normally I don't have a problem with Dell, they take pretty good care of me, and I get a good discount on hardware.

This, however, is an exception:
expensive screws

(Sorry for the poor quality, came from my iPhone again—its close-up photography is teh s uck)

Let me clarify this picture. Those 12 screws were $1.99 each. Anything that sticks out at all will stop the device from being inserted into the server. And of course you need four per hard drive. Seriously, is that really necessary? This is a lot of goodwill lost over a stupidly cheap part, guys.

I just donated my 25th pint of blood. This is the beginning of my fourth gallon donated. Woohoo!
