Bill Gates, Kiss My Butt!

After struggling for the past six weeks trying to get my computer up and running I decided to invest in a new one and tackle the dreaded Windows 8!.  I headed out Saturday and it didn’t take long for me to find one that offered all I wanted and more….12 GB memory, 2 TB hard drive, plenty of USB ports, and best of all, 18 month financing, no interest.  I bit the bullet and said hell yeah!
