And, for our own good, we must be restricted to using Dell-branded
enclosures... we can't take the risk that the holes in a lesser product
might be out-of-kilter, slightly tweaking the chassis, causing memory
and cards to edge out of their slots.
Better get Dell-branded network cables, too. And Dell KVMs, Dell
keyboards, Dell mice... Dell mousepads, too, just to absolutely ensure a
positive computing experience...
If I don't drive my dell car to my dell-tacenter I could face unintended acceleration!!!
