Pet Peeve #54: The USB Drive on the Dell Dimension 8200

USB Dell

An open letter to the Scuzbucket who designed the USB Drive on the Front of the Dell Dimension 8200:

I have a bigass computer tower under my desk. You know, where you're supposed to keep bigass computer towers. It's a trusty black Dell and I like it just fine. It ain't never done me wrong.


I want to personally find you and shoot you between the eyeballs. Being the fine upstanding chumpbucket that you are, you put a handy USB drive on the front of the tower. Except you must have been asleep at the wheel because this drive slot is at a 45 degree angle, facing DOWNWARDS, at the bottom of the tower.

You know what this means? I'm going to tell you.

For the average USB use, this means I am on the floor, feeling for the USB plug, trying vainly to insert the USB drive when I CANNOT SEE A DAMN THING. This happens MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY.

Thank you for making me a dusty sneezy mess. I hope you don't mind when I curse and shake my fist at you 3 times a day. It's only bad karma and voodoo vibes I'm sending your way.

Just get a USB hub, connect the hub to the computer and use the hub for all other USB devices :)
