[quote=“herbie_popnecker”]It will be nice once it’s up and running for the simple fact that if Vancouver screws up stuff could be diverted to Rupert instead of the USA.
This trucker’s strike in Van, preceeded by rail problems out of Van is severely blackening their name as a container port. It’s been affecting us for two weeks now, cuz those containers are full of computer parts.
We’re small and order and build on the fly, and had to rob retail stock. Now we have to order Hitachi harddrives and we’re out of RAM and combo burners. Bad timing, we just found Future Shop and Staples selling 512MB of DDR400 for $159, and wecould get it for $49… if it wasn’t in a container stuck behind the picket line.[/quote]
Do you order from Simmtec? They have some wicked good prices everything… processors are dirt cheap. I was on the Dell website the other day, and they have a good price on a P4 2.8 533, 512mb 80 gig and free 17" flat pannel for $799 canadian. Good?.. Look very closely, if you want to upgrade to 1 gig of ram, its $200 extra, the 17" flat pannel is optional, but include a 15" with the system. DVD burner is $175 extra. The list goes on, and at the same time reading this I was shaking my head. I can’t believe they actually sucker stupid people like that. Thank god I know my computer pricing pretty well. Who knew building and ordering computers everyday would come in handy.
