Wow ... still a lot of dead links. (even more... )
Let's see... I need to apparently take out "SpamPoison.com" since it's disappeared. (Boo!)
And my weather links in Misc need to be updates as The Weather Channel appears to have moved them. (Boo!) But they are fixed now and I'm using the National Weather Service. So Nyah.

Well, with CentOS getting snookered into being upstream from RHEL, I'm not sure I'll run it anymore. So now I have to look for another LTS distro for Linux.
And maybe CentOS Stream won't be so bad. I'll be keeping an eye on it.
But then there's also Rocky Linux (founder of CentOS starting up again) and that will be worth looking into.

At some point, I want to move the site to a CMS... but even that is a project because there's so many things I've hand coded into this version of the site that I want to make sure I understand how to move over. (not just my content either.)
So many things to do... it's not just a task. Heheh...

Yes yes. I realize it's because companies do this on purpose. But when I call support, it's usually because I've found a legit problem the company would probably want to know about.
Just read this link in the New York Times about crappy tech support is a designed feature. It really puts context to why tech support is such a nightmare.
I'm currently working with TrendNet and Pelco about serious flaws in software they've written and the problems they're causing. So far, TrendNet web support has been as expected: Completely worthless. We'll see how Pelco does when they contact me back.

I would also like to say thanks for all the positive feedback users have sent to me on my techtips pages (most notably the Toshiba fix page).
I can guess how irritated you all were when you progressed through the potential repair process by people you can just tell don't care and just want their money for something Toshiba should know better about.
I'm glad you all got your TV's to work (and I know some did not because they had different models). I'm sorry I couldn't help in those cases.
I love hearing back from everyone. Happy New Year!
