Nir: This all started when I noted my deceased friend was sold a new
computer by the Geek Squad, them telling him he had a bad hard drive.
All I did to his old one was change the clock battery and it, after
running all sorts of diagnostics on it for 2 weeks now, is stable. Eric
took offense at this and this is how all this got started. I, of course,
agree with David Ford. I have seem con-artists spray water on the ground
and call it soil poisoning, testers take core samples of concrete and
write bogus reports having never busted the sample, and white wash
sprayed on a shingled roof of an elderly woman's home with thousands of
dollars charged for a new roof. The only difference I see is that all of
these people are now in jail. When I see someone who has problems, my
heart goes out to them and I want to help, above and beyond the obvious
that to take advantage of their lack of knowledge is certainly not
professional.
