Don't Panic!
My Hard drive had some kind of heart attack. Its running for now but i fear its demise is imminent.
I'm trying to order a replacement from Tiger Direct, but they're having some kind of infrastructure problem & customer abuse is utterly useless so I may, or may not have a computer on order.
Stay tuned . . .

My new computer was shipped, but not shipped, to the misunderstood address (I only spelled it 4 times), but has been cancelled because, as "English is not my primary language so I mis-pronounced Hill, H-I-L-L, Hill, (Hotel India Lima Lima) as field, F-I-E-L-D, field.(Foxtrot India Echo Lima Delta)"! Yes, I used the NATO  mne•mon•ic nĭ-mŏn′ĭk.
As I complained they cancelled the order.
Then re-shipped it TO THE SAME WRONG ADDRESS!!
I am truly cursed I believe now.
I'm just going to wait 'till something, if anything, arrives & dispute all other charges for the 3 other computers delivered to the wrong place.
* sigh *

This morning I discover that 1/2 of the order has been reshipped, again, to the wrong address. I have now spoken, spelled & explained that "field" F-I-E-L-D, field, is NOT THE SAME as Hill, H-I-L-L, Hill. The nice, barely engris speaking man assures me that its correct because "field is hill"? So we now have 1 1/2 shipments have gone, all to the wrong place. Hopefully its close enough for the UPS Ground to figure out by the zip code?

UPDATE:
Most of the stuff arrived, but no card reader/writer  or DVD drive, & the compute has no a/c power cord plus the monitor cord is not connecting the monitor that was bundles with it to the computer it was bundled with.
This means all my data has to be saved to a thumb drive, the computer shut down & its cords swapped to the new one which has to then powered  up up so I can save all the data.
Then I go back & do it again.
Unfortunately one of the files was my address book with all my contact info including logons & passwords.
But we're getting there & I'm promised cable & cords from the sales rep I call "rooster lady"
Cock-a doodle-doo!

I don't suppose any of you are Hewlett Packard computer whizzes by any chance?
Specifically why their own "displayport" HDMI cabling?
Supposedly there's a problem where it can't connect the 2 bundled ends of the same package!

The sad saga continues to limp onward.

"Let me see, the package from a "U.S. Supplier", that UPS confirms was delivered to Ponce, Puerto Rico can't possibly have been, because it is still in route From China, (a U.S. supplier).

The wonder's of modern technology!
You can't even blame Brexit! We've had some major spare parts blocked in customs for ages!
With customer's waiting. 
The stuff's only coming from the UK to France; but they sent by truck to a German distribution centre, where Customs sat on it for over 4 weeks for a transmission and 12 weeks for car batteries!
Marvelous!!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Anything to do with an attempt to "punish" Bad Britain for leaving?

Now they're getting aggressive!
DEMANDING I change my bad review to "good", as its "negatively affecting their business, unfairly".
I told them I'll wait till the product arrives successfully.
Sure I'll change it.
"Product lost, reshipped from China after lying to me by saying they were "In The USA" Then arrived late after multiple harassing e-mails from China."
THAT ought to help their business!
