Amazing what we put up with while still denigrating Apple owners.

To be honest, I've been tempted more than once. There is something to be said for stability.

There is something to be said for many things, but that is still not enough to get me to join a cult.

Smart design and clever marketing results in a cult? To be fair, owning a Voodoo (in its heyday) was more cultish than owning a Mac would ever be.

True, but even the most rabid Voodoo fanboys -- and those were a minority -- cannot hold a candle to an Apple worshipper.

I dunno. Are there any Apple worshipers that could measure up to Freak?

Freak was a creature unto himself. He cannot be used to prove or disprove any point; he simply is.

Rozzie!



I do not remember. I have wiped as many Freak-oriented details out of my mind as possible.

oh yes, the link actually still goes to him. He has a bibliography as well on that site! I had shut out a lot of the old memories out of my mind as well, and I really shouldn't have dug him up lol Laughing

Maybe I'm confused, but I'm thinking that voodoopcfreak was from LA. He had several run-ins with Rahool, was banned once or twice, and eventually left to start his own computer company--Aquabox, I think. The other equally annoying guy was from Edmonton, I think. He was going to start a store to sell computers. I think I still have some notes at home that I used to keep everybody straight in my mind, I'll have to check.

Checked my info at home. Voodoopcfreak was from California, he owned an M750 and his friend (or alterego, I was never sure which) was drugfranbs.

Don't have any info about the guy from Canada.

http://diversityj.com/Voodoo/LaptopsQandA.html (El Presidente's site)

Both are surprisingly still up.

For giggles & grins I tried to get on zweistein's faq site, but had no luck. I guess it was part of the old MB's.

zweistein's site was hosted with rogers cable. I am guessing he has since found a better http host or switched to a different isp

Didn't Kimple create his own "Trash Voodoo" site?

Yes. At the time I thought it was extreme and uncalled for. As I learned the true meaning of Voodoo customer service, I developed an entirely different opinion.

(Note to former Voodoo employees: I find no fault with what you did and realize that you were following the instructions of management.)

No arguments about most of the issues with Voodoo customer service (though my own experience was fine) but it is hard to sympathize with Kimple regardless. I went looking for his site, but it must be down. I just found some forum mentions of it.

The Kimple site was so over the top, it was hard not to laugh.
