    I ordered a new iMac, at work I got my resigning bonus and decided to be a good geek and blow it on technology.  I bought a Rio Carbon and I got my wife a new flat panel monitor for her G4.  The iMac arrived today and I opened the box when I got home, pulled it all out, went to hook up the keyboard and noticed this keyboard looked funcky, the buttons were not right.  Its a french layout keyboard.  I called Apple and they told me that the state of North Carolina is in France.  Im like huh?  I told the lady look at MSN Earth and tell me where oh where it says North Carolina is in France.  So finally, we got it straight, at least I thought, and she was going to ship me out a new keyboard and I could keep this one because of the inconvenience.  Verified my shipping address and she gave me an amount that I had to pay.  I asked how come I have to pay for shipping her response.

    'We have to pay international shipping rates sir"

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH

    I talked to her supervisor and hopefully got the shitr straight.

    Isn't it you who had that Tech Support stupidity line thing or was that someone else (which I'm beginning to feel increasingly sure it was)?

    Well, it is reassurring to know that Apple's recent security update for 34 holes in various bits of Tiger also breaks 64-bit application support.
