Diablo III Hotfixes

The Diablo III Website has a list of new hotfixes on the server side for the action/RPG sequel. This includes the previously announced fix to lower the damage dealt by enemies in Monster Power mode as well as changes to the Keywarden and a bug fix that addresses a problem that could cause the game to crash.

Never order off of the Dell website. Call them up or email and get a sales person, describe what you want, and have them custom build a system for you.
Email didn't work for me. Earlier this year I tried both on-line chat and email to get a custom built 8500 desktop. Basically, the only thing I wanted which wasn't available on the website was I wanted a Raid 1 configuration. Both email and on-line chat representatives said they could not accommodate me. So, I bought from HP instead.

Yeah, building your own might be cheaper, but convenience is a much bigger issue for me. I got tired of building my own PCs over a decade ago.

? I saved 600+ on my 1500 dollar rig. Took me less than 4 hours to put it together and install Win7 on a SSD. Unless you make 200+ an hour, you are out of your mind.

Does that 4 hours include the research time to go through, compare parts, scrounge for deals, and put your order together?

I *do* charge 150 an hour for my labor for the right projects. Even at 75 an hour, which is my base rate, I ask my clients "do you really want to pay me 75 an hour to build computers for you?" Because I *will* charge for research, parts comparison, scrounging for deals, and every nanosecond I can justify being billable.

I used to *love* updating a clean Windows XP machine with office & windows patches. If they don't have me do other stuff during that down time, that's 2-3 hours of fucking around on facebook and getting paid well to do it.
