Well I'm still waiting to solve my computer problem. I don't have one yet (a computer) .
I called TigerDirect last week and placed an order for one. They got a pre-auth approved on my account but no matter what I did they would not agree that I was who I said I was and honor my order. I spent numerous phone calls and emails attempting to address their "concerns" but it was hopeless. They were content to take my money (I won't say how much) but not "approve my order. So, I cancelled my "order" which they refused to approve and demanded my money back. I'm still waiting for it.
So, this week if they don't come to their senses I will be in contact with my state's Consumer Protection Agency and check into the free legal assistance available to me at work. I did somehow manage to successfully purchase some memory sticks, power supply and graphics card from them in 2007 but this time no luck. My memory of the transaction then was they also were difficult to work with. My advice is avoid TigerDirect, their "Order Approval Department" is extremely unreasonable.
On a postive note, I've completed my first full week of work for my new employer, have moved into my new location and have made contact with a local reputable system builder here close to home. I plan on visiting them tomorrow.
Later all and soon I will be computing again.
