Best buy wouldn't hire me despite being certified and having experience working as a tech at a 300 bed hospital. Kind of sore about that. Management is incompetent at that store anyway. The brother of a friend of mine worked there. They pressured him to get some type of certification for the department he worked in. When he got it they discovered they had to give him a raise because of it. So rather than giving him the raise they fired him.

Sorry for the off topic rant but they shafted me a few weeks ago and that was my best chance at a job for the near future.

It's ok...I'm friends with all the guys that work there and I'm a more qualified tech than any of them (they even told management that) and they still wouldn't move me to a tech position and kept me in sales...oh well this is when I worked there years ago, so no big deal!

There is no way in hell Asus put 9GB of hyper IC's in that thing. They are too expensive, and in relative short supply.



That's just wrong...LOL

Not low enough supply. Mushkin started replacing their standard ICs with Hypers.
