I run Perl Training Australia [perltraining.com.au].

I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.

I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.

Talk like a pirate;New screen from Dell

[ #31047 ]

Talk like a pirate
Avast m'hearties. It be talk like a pirate day, the one day ye can swig grog on the poop deck, play on yer hornpipe, and go sailing with ye mates.

If ye be looking fer others to be piratey with, ye may even drop into Puzzle Pirates. I be Tarrlox on the Sage ocean, if ye wishes to say ahoy!

New screen from Dell
Dell seems to have a policy that one cannot transfer a 1 year USA warranty to another country, although one can update it to a 3 year international warranty. If I go to the USA for laptop service, then everything is fine. Otherwise, I'm out of luck.

I had a chat with Dell to say that it's not really fair that they reveal this only after I make a warranty claim, especially when there's no indication of this on their warranty transfer page, nor did they say anything when I completed the warranty transfer form.

Dell, quite graciously, agreed with my argument, and while they're not transferring the warranty, they are replacing the screen. That's a great resolution for me, since the screen is probably worth more than the warranty, and it's all I really want out of this entire matter.

While I can't say that everything is hunky-dory until the screen is replaced, I'm certainly happy with how things have progressed so far.
