Wells Fargo Does it Again

Image by Getty Images via Daylife So I just got off the phone with two different Wells Fargo Dealer Services representatives. After explaining my current employment unemployed status the first representative told me that I qualified for a deferment and would transfer me to that department. So I get transferrred and repeat my request for a deferment. And get told that I won't qualify for one until I have another job. So my options are get my car repossessed if I can't make payments suffer the wrath of the bad credit gods because of late payments Thanks a lot Wells Fargo. I try to fix something before it becomes a huge problem and you are once again unwilling to work with the customer.

Beautiful Breakfast

I had the most beautiful breakfast - a buckwheat flour  crêpe with fresh berries and some of the best whipped cream I have ever tasted. Great way to start the day. Now I just have to find a business center around here. I forgot to print out my itinerary for NAB Show as well as my badge info. By the way, this delightful concoction can be found at Payard in Cesar's Palace . Related articles by Zemanta Off the Menu: A Payard Cafe in the Village (

I just want my music!!!

Now I remember why I hate Apple. Ok, hate is a strong word. Seriously dislike. It's supposed to be a really smart (translation no-brainer) OS that is truly plug-n-play. However, my mp3 player, a Haier ibiza Rhapsody (30GB) , is not even detected as a mountable drive, after hours and hours and hours of trying to get it to work, I finally went over to my netbook. It sees it as an PMP as it should, but (whoops) there appears to be an error and it won't stay connected for more than a few minutes. That being said, the mac didn't detect it all, not even for a few moments. Lots of people pointed me to iSync   ... whatever happened to drag-and-drop? I don't even have an iTunes account! Mainly because I would only get free podcasts and Apple does not need my credit card info for free content (which is why I use Google Reader for most of my podcasts, no worries about content getting deleted either). I get my music from the Amazon mp3 downloads (you know, since it's already p

I just want to blog...

Image via Wikipedia ... from my desktop! I recently became the owner of a Mac mini. I'm trying to make the transition, but a lot of things that I can do easily on a Windows machine are becoming problematical on a Mac. Ok, well, so far just blogging (and adding music to my mp3 player, but that will be discussed in another post). I didn't realize how many web apps I used, so some things like email and document creation don't matter as much (thank you Google Docs ). I do run VMWare with Windows so I can run programs like Windows Live Writer but I thought I would look for something similar on the Mac side. I love Darren of Problogger who has a post covering just this topic: 14 Essential Mac OS X Applications for Bloggers : "A number of blogging friends have recently made the switch from using PCs to using Macs as their primary blogging machines. Each time that one of them makes the move I tend to get an email or call a day or two later asking for advice on differe
