Do you have a legal copy of Windows?

The thought has never crossed my mind to check if I had a legal copy of windows, but Bill Gates makes it easy to find out. Not sure where or how this would ever come in handy, but I want to start searching for random buttons in MS menus.

Customer Service Reps working on 1980’s Computers

I have been making a lot of calls to companies lately regarding my home purchase. These range from calling mortgage brokers, banks, insurance companies, cable, electric, and gas providers. Every time I call them, I get a different customer representative who has to either take or confirm my personal and account information. Of the numerous calls I have made, at least 87% of the customer reps have stated that their computers are “running slow today”. Either every customer service representative works on old DOS based computer or is still dialing up through 28k modems.

I don’t buy it. I pay all of these places enough money to be able to afford a computer that can keep up with entering my information and processing some data as well as a high speed internet connection.
