    OMG, I hate god damn Asus. I hate that company with everything in me. Why the hell does the company I work for have to start selling their products? It drives me up the wall because they are the lowest of the low.

    Once upon a time, Asus was a great company. They were up there Lenovo and Fujitsu back in the day when it came to quality machines. The old Asus W3 series were some of the best 14 inch laptops ever produced and georgous to look at if I say so myself. Then when they moved from being more about business and boutique rigs the company just nose dived. Asus is a company that makes a buttload of different products. I've heard they spend ridiculous mounts on R&D. They come up with alot of stuff that looks awesome but it all ends up being lacking in quality.

    I'd put them on the rung a mile below Acer or even Avertec from back in the day. OMG I feel like my brain is hemorrhaging just from having to talk to them for about 40 freaking minutes. I really feel for my poor customer. If you already can't tell I go way back with Asus.

    To multiple motherboard failures on my desktop. Dude, I had an issue with an Asus motherboard where I tried to upgrade the ram and when I ran a mem check to make sure the ram sticks I was buying were good kept coming up with errors. I had the same issue with sticks from Adata, Patriot, and Crucial. Then realized the problem was that slot was screwing them up. I got Asus to replace it after going in circles with them and had the same problem with the same slot on the replacement. They replace it with a whole other model and had the same problem. That's just the tip of issues I've had with Asus motherboards.

    I had an Asus W7S notebook that died like two days outside the warranty and was nothing but trouble, to the point where I said screw it and parted that son. Then I had an Asus EeePC Netbook. Sent that stupid thing in multiple times for failed screens. I don't know what the hell was up with those piece of crap 10 inch panels Asus was putting in them and worse, one time they returned it to me without any screws in the screen bezel, they were all left out. Seriously, what? Who forgets to check and make sure all the damn screws are back in? That thing literally fell to pieces on me. The area between the hinges separated in two through the normal wear of opening and closing the screen. Eventually it was unusable and since the parts on a netbook are pretty damn worthless it sits in pieces in my closet. That's just part of it, I do customer service so I'm pretty understanding and nice to other support reps but the time I lost to those morons just made makes me want to scream. I will never own another of their products. Sorry Nexus 7.

    Now I have to deal with them here? Acer, Novatel, and Blackberry are bad enough but Asus? I had a poor customer call in with that stupid Asus Vivo Tab RT piece of **** tablet and couldn't setup any email addresses on the device's push based email. Should be automatic. I had not trouble with it. I tried manual setup with correct incoming and outgoing servers. Nada. Not hotmail, not gmail, not freaking aol, not even yahoo. Ofcourse its brand new and I have virtually no info what so ever on the damn thing. The only thing I got is two days worth of experience with my own Windows 8 tablet which I had no problems with, thank you M*ing Acer. Customer gets told email passwords are incorrect when he can sign in just fine through Internet Exploder. WIFI vs. 4G LTE or even locked into 2G makes no difference.

    So, I suck it up and call Asus for some support on their device. Get a guy who surprisingly is U.S. based but had no clue what the hell is going on. Can't even find the serial number of the device. I guessed where it is. He proceeds to ask for the same info atleast 10 times like he doesn't even know what the Vivo Tab is or have any more info on it than I do. Then he feeds me garbage about needing to create different usernames to setup more than one email address which doesn't even have anything to do with problem. My customer can't setup any email addresses.

    So frustrating since customers see this as all one big problem and I'm almost certainly going to get a bad survey over stupid Asus. Why? Why? Why? [/rant]

    ...that came out of Seerow?

    Actually, come to think of it I recall being at Best Buy last summer with a friend who got into an argument about an Asus computer with a Geek Squader. I had no idea what the trouble was at the time, but it seemed Geek Squader was royally miffed at the company and didn't want to work on Asus products.

    You're motherboard problems with ASUS sound like my motherboard problems with EVGA. :p
    I agree on their computers and tablets being crap, but the motherboards they make for 2nd and 3rd gen i-Core chips are actually pretty good. It's almost like they're made by 2 separate companies. The Sabertooth X79 I've got in my desktop had a much better build quality than the equivalent EVGA and had pretty good reviews on NewEgg. <-Not that I trust those. So far it's been the most reliable motherboard I've had. My friend's ASUS "entertainment" desktop on the other hand dies every other week.

    I only trust new egg user reviews so far. I've had problems with a few Asus motherboards. I understand alot of people swear by Asus motherboards the way I swear by Thinkpad for notebooks but I'm a consumer with limited resources and a company can only burn me so many time. Asus has pretty much made me a 4 alarm fire a few times.


    Lol, sorry. I'll just got to my corner now.

    I think what they're trying to say is that their tampons are so absorbent they can soak up the radioactive waste of your vagina, protecting those around you.

    You can build a fallout shelter with a single layer of these.

    These tampons can block gamma rays better than lead, so that means Superman can't eye your vag if you're wearing them.

    Superman: I can't see into Lex Luthor's compound. He must have lined it with Tampax radiant plastic.

    Hah, could be a magical girl series. The magical Radiant Lady powered by magical radio active tampons bought at Target. She fights for love, justice, and absorbency.

    Coming to a Saturday morning Cartoon Network slot near you. Immediately after watching TCW, young impressionable males will learn enough about female anatomy, physiology and mood swings to scar them for life.

    When no-one was looking, Lex Luthor took forty packs of tampons. He took 40 packs of tampons. That's as many as four tens.

    And that's terrible.

    Lex Luthor will stoop to any level, even stealing feminine hygiene products from his local Walgreens to thwart Superman. He could easily afford them, but he's too embarrassed to go through the checkout.

    For those times that he finds himself at the corner of: Kryptonian about to save the day and all out of Kryptonite.

    I'd call animal control to see if they can be taken in and adopted. Do you have a no-kill shelter there?

    I'd want to take them home too.

    ROFL, that's so horrible and yet so awesome. I'm glad all my QA's are done. This is how women take over the world. Rise up ladies! Thank you for innovating Tampax. xD

    I think you quoted the wrong post Tarodos. xD

    I don't think there is a no kill shelter around. Damn my bleeding cat lover's heart. Honestly I'm talking with co-workers about capturing atleast the kittens and splitting two each. I know that sounds harsh but its going down into the 30s here tonight (not complaining. =b) and kittens don't look very healthy. Also, they are at an age to where they'll need to be socialized with people soon or they'll not make good pets. The primary danger would be getting attached and keeping them.

    Kittens generally wouldn't be too hard to home, even if placed in shelter that conducts euthanasia. It's the older ones, because people just HAVE to have a kitten/puppy, even if they have no business owning one.

    **My family used to breed Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers and there were strong feelings among my parents that someone that is 80+ years old has no business getting a puppy, and would not sell them to older folk, yet it didn't stop these people from trying. It mostly had to do with the belief that they would not have the energy to properly care for a young animal, also the burden that the animal might become to someone should it (likely) outlive the owner, and the difficulty there is in housing an older animal at that point.

    I remember one time I tried to adopt a young adult cat from a Petsmart adoption drive hosting by some local organization. I brought the old ladies the vet records for my two current cats and they still told me 'no' because I already had the two cats and I was only 20. Sucks the most for that cat IMO. Would have had a wonderful home with me. Then again sometimes I worry when I'm an old lady. I mean older than the old lady I am now that I might become the crazy cat lady.

    The kittens should be easy to place but they need socialization first. I'm sure they'll be easy to find homes. Unless everyone suddenly get superstitious since they are all four solid black.

    I only think folks should refused to sell animals for birthdays or Christmas and stuff like that. An animal isn't like an iPad.

    Was it the neglected kitties or bleeding vaginas?
