    I'm glad they took care of you. I've been fighting with them over a warranty issue that dates back to last Feb. All I get is a run-around.

    That sure sounds like dell nowdays, they just have name recognition but their service has gone down every year.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Sam Walton. He is definitely my favorite entrepreneur and his autobiography Mad in America is also good. I would love to lead a life like he did except I would be satisfied to make less money than he did in exchange for more time with family. He wasn't just a great entrepreneur but was a good man too.

    The whole time I was reading this thread I also, thought, where the heck is Sam Walton, you just beat me to it. Id recommend Made in America to any entrepreneur, its table of contents acts as a great business outline. Not only was he a great man, but his company is worth more then any other in the world, even more then microsoft.

    I was about to say Sam Walton. I know Wal-mart has gotten a bad rap on hear a few times and I don't have much respect for the company any more. But back when mister walton was alive and running things it was a lot different. he never forgot about the employees who ran his stores and the people who shopped there. I worked at a couple different wal-mart stores in the early 90's (shortly after mister waltons death) and many of the long time employees would talk about the good old days and how things were changing for the worse as more and more of the managers sitting in the home office lost touch with what their company was really about.

    sorry about the long story. I just think that Sam wouldn't be too happy if he say his company today.

    Jesse James is my favorite not the ciminal the owner of West Coast Choppers. He has made a fine company doing what he loves and still does what he loves every day at the shop. Building custom bikes from scratch.
