Not sure why you think he needs to explain it to me as I did not bring up the the fact that the goverment purchased one of his buildings. I just said to the person who brought it up that he sould be made at the goverment not Gate's for that.

This is what I said:
I was just joking to get this thread going. I agree he has done more good then harm and if congress is stupid enough to pay for one his buildings then they are the stupid ones. I don't know why congress agreed to this but if it was to keep and create jobs then it will pay back the tax payers at some point. My brother in law was looking to buy some land and build a new office to get out of paying rent to someone else. One city through up so many road blocks that he told them that he was no longer interested. He went to the next city over and they gave him a bunch of tax breaks as long as 30% of his employee's lived in that city. Well he moved to that city and has 45 employee's and the city has recouped their tax breaks and is now making money off his business. Smart move for goverment in alot of cases but in his he only received tax breaks not cash to help build. This same city owned a bunch of buildings in the older part of town and allowed businesses to open shop in these building for rent free for several years. Now that part of town is booming and the city is raking in the new taxes.

what he aid was the richest needed all the govt help(i.e. tax breaks, and loans) because they were the main supplier of jobs. with more money in the right hands, the economy would grow. now that bill gates took advantage of it, some don't like it

I don't play video games and haven't since Nintendo 64 was the hot system, but I was thinking about dabbling again. I have a bunch of friends who are gamers. What is the red ring of death?

It's when your xbox won't start, and the LED ring around the center button (which is usually green) turns red.

Hey you cannot blame a guy for trying and if people don't like it then they need to look at the people who gave him the money. I'd sure hate to see what he pays in taxes.

And so that's it? Red ring = throw your Xbox away? Unreal.

I guess the positive spin on Microsoft sucking is just think of how many IT/tech jobs have been created due to Microsoft/Windows products being so clunky and inefficient.

It means you send it back to MS if it's still under their warranty, or you better hope you bought a replacement plan at the store. If not, then it's time to sell it broken on ebay for parts.

Re: F... Bill Gates...

I have a love hate relation with computers. I just purchased a new computer system for my office and I have no clue how to use all the stuff installed on them. I just took the spec sheet from our home office and gave it to a customer who does business computers systems and told him to get me what was needed. His first price was almost $11,000 then I sat him down and got him to about half that price. He said its a basic office system but I still get lost.

Sorry the last guy got all my money. Actually the first system he had was way to much for my office so he worked me up another deal. I had to purchase 4 new PC's a net work so they could work somewhat together and I purchased a new multi function printer, copier, and scanner. I'm sure I could have found a better price but I have his business and he spends over 10 grand a year with me so it was not that big of a deal.

Re: F... Bill Gates...

Did it include the appropriate software licenses for what you need?

Re: F... Bill Gates...

Like you said, you and he have a business relationship. Sounds like he got you squared away, and when done right, that's worth a lot.

He is in the business of installing business systems and has installers, a service center, etc... I know some agents who just went out and purchased computers but they have all had issues and now are having to call in IT guys to fix them. So far mine are working fine but I'm not using much of the software but he is going to send someone out to spend the day helping with any issues. Most of the stuff I use is web based so it is not that hard to use and its alot of the stuff I have used for the past couple years.
