Although I despise them, I hope you get accepted. I've thought of working there, but that means I'd have to quit high school.

Way to go Joga

I hate them, though, from a business stand point. They charge way too much for every frickin' service they offer. I beat every one of their prices easily...especially for virus removal. I mean, for what they charge, you could go buy a new computer. But, I would still work for them. I just wouldn't wanna drive around in a VW all day :P

On a side note, will someone please explain to me the massive-uber-super-cool-ness I'm missing by playing every game I own in 1024x768 res (SOMETIMES at 1280x960). I figured I'd post it here in random chat rather than getting flamed in a real post :P

Why shouldn't they charge that much if people are dumb enough to pay that much?

Maybe it's a small town thing, but I prefer to be honest and not rip people off. Geek Squad charges enough that they could probably solely be responsible for sucking the U.S. economy dry....

It's not a small town thing. I like to be honest. But I can't imagine how those people get paid. Like OMG.

I thought you had an F-350? They only have 3 options for the super dutys, a 5.4L V8, a V10, or a diesel.
