An Open Letter to Compaq...

Dear HP/Compaq,

The retainer rings on your 2-button mice are not the same size as the retainer rings on your scroll mice, thereby making the two parts completely not interchangeable.

I hate you.

Love,
-Datan0de

No, just a sudden horrible realization as I was trying to scrape together enough PS/2 scroll mice to meet a user request.

Ah yes, Compaq hardware. Incompatible with everything. Even itself.

I have seen Compaq PCs that would not except replacement parts sent by Compaq.

It's far, far worse with their server equipment.

Been there, done that! I've spent several late nights in our comm room wrestling with a quirky Compaq server. It's taught me exciting new meanings of the word "hate".

Nowadays I'm doing more desktop support than back end, but the fun continues! We just got a shipment of 150 thin clients in, and before I've even had a chance to configure & deploy them I've been informed that they're going to need to be replaced very soon.

*angst*
