My very own Dell Customer Advocate!

July 7, 2006

I got an e-mail today from John, a Dell Customer Advocate. He had read my blog entry about the flashing amber power button syndrome and wants to assist.

Looking at their forums though, it looks like quite a few people would like some assistance. John, you’ve got your work cut out for you 🙂
