I had a long day today. And yesterday. And Friday, I was sick and missed work- nice thing to come back to after being sick. It seemed that I had to download a new version of the VOIP softphone my company uses to have me do my work. The new version didn't work. Called Nerds Onsite. They couldn't find the problem after more than an hour on the phone and 'puter and numerous emails back and forth. Then, I called Dell tech support. They found the problem and fixed it after hours on the phone and 'puter. What's more, the warranty on my 'puter was expired, so to get Dell to fix the problem, I had to renew the warranty for $270. So, I'm broke. The problem is fixed now, but it is not fun to be out of money. Is this the kind of thing classroom teachers face when they buy their own classroom supplies?
