The new hard drive arrived today – shockingly fast, so of course, I left a good review on resellerratings.com.
Within an hour or so of the Purolator guy leaving, I had it installed in the laptop, formatted and running ubuntu – yay, me! If only the printer would work, but unfortunately, it’s networked through a Windows machine, and has always been a bit flaky…
(when the kids write their Shabbos divrei Torah on the laptop, they have to email them to me to print; even on the windows desktop computer itself, they cannot print, for some reason – so, again, they have to request that I print their documents for them)
Speaking of good reviews, if you are a Rainbow Resources customer, you can win store credit reviewing books and resources at their website. I have only written a few reviews there, but have already won three times. They choose new winners every month. So far, I think I have won $10 twice and $5 once. It’s just a little bit, but it can at least help offset the shipping costs.
I like Rainbow because they ship to Canada (fairly reasonable rates, though it can be slow), because they respond fairly quickly to questions, offer a great selection, and accept PayPal. Just the basics, but those really do count.
Anyway, here’s my most recent review, for the Judy Clock. This won me a credit back in April, but I haven’t used it yet. I’m saving up for fancy things like groceries at the moment (still recovering, financially, from the big hit we call Pesach), plus my big trip to Baltimore in a couple of weeks!
