It's just about inevitable that if I really like something, the concept just won't work in Dallas. My favorite furniture store, Palazzetti, couldn't make it here in Dallas. There was even a Citroën dealer in town when I first moved here, but I knew that wasn't going to last, since people couldn't even pronounce the name of the car. Over and over again, my favorite restaurants, camera stores, furniture stores and art galleries have all gone out of business. I should probably hire myself out as a new business consultant. If I like the idea, it's almost a certainly that it will fail in Dallas. Oddly, relatively few businesses fail in Dallas. Hooters and Church's Chicken will probably be here forever.
Unleashed wasn't the only thing that failed today. My main computer finally gave up the ghost. This time, instead of trying to resurrect another relic from the storage warehouse, I took the computer up to mactracks and asked them to fix it. If I'd gone ahead and done this a month ago when I first started having problems, I could have saved myself a lot of time and trouble. The other repair on the books for today was a total waste of time. The AT&T repairman didn't even show up. This is the third time in a row that AT&T has scheduled a repair call and then failed to show up. The new 4G iPhone is looking better and better.
