    I would like to remind everyone that ALL information on this site is private and confidential and never released to ANYONE else not even the U.S. Goverment since the machine this site runs on is an another country where U.S. law does not apply.  
     
    This site is not operated by, sponsored by, endorsed by, or affiliated with Fry's Electronics in any way. The official Fry's Electronics site is www.frys.com.  
     
    Here's information regarding Section 230  
    Here's information regarding Fair use of Copyrights  
    Here's information regarding Fair use of Trademarks  
    Here's information regarding Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)  
    Here's information regarding Privacy Rights  
     
    Parts of the law I care about:  
     
    Section 230 Protections: What is this "Section 230" thing anyway?  
    Section 230 refers to Section 230 of Title 47 of the United States Code (47 USC § 230). It was passed as part of the much-maligned Communication Decency Act of 1996. Many aspects of the CDA were unconstitutional restrictions of freedom of speech (and, with EFF's help, struck down by the Supreme Court), but this section survived and has been a valuable defense for Internet intermediaries ever since.  
     
    Section 230 Protections: What protection does Section 230 provide?  
    Section 230 says that "No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider." This federal law preempts any state laws to the contrary: "[n]o cause of action may be brought and no liability may be imposed under any State or local law that is inconsistent with this section." The courts have repeatedly rejected attempts to limit the reach of Section 230 to "traditional" Internet service providers, instead treating many diverse entities as "interactive computer service providers."  
     
    Trademarks Protections: Can I use their name and logo?  
    While trademark law prevents you from using someone else's trademark to sell your competing products (you can't make and sell your own "Rolex" watches or name your blog "Newsweek"), it doesn't stop you from using the trademark to refer to the trademark owner or its products (offering repair services for Rolex watches or criticizing Newsweek's editorial decisions). That kind of use, known as "nominative fair use," is permitted if using the trademark is necessary to identify the products, services, or company you're talking about, and you don't use the mark to suggest the company endorses you. In general, this means you can use the company name in your review so people know which company or product you're complaining about. You can even use the trademark in a domain name (like walmartsucks.com), so long as it's clear that you're not claiming to be or speak for the company.  
     
    Best way to get a hold of me is to send me a Private Message on the site, I will respond within 24 hours.

    Apparently, there are lots of people looking for a place to complain about Fry (the store). Everyone, including me, thought this site was affiliated with Fry the s---t electronics store - but in a good way. :-) I mean, at least in the sense that this (un)affiliated site provides an outlet for the expression of pain this store clearly has caused so many people. I can't believe that Fry (the store) is still in business judging from all the comments I see here. They outrageously violate every rule regarding retail - from product to customer service and on and on and on. I, myself, am a victim of Fry's (the store) larceny.

    "In the United States, larceny is a common law crime involving theft. Under the common law, larceny is the trespassory taking (caption) and carrying away (asportation, removal) of the tangible personal property of another with the intent to deprive him or her of its possession permanently."

    That's because there are people who have good experiences at Fry's. That is why Fry's is still in business.Why is there an S in Lisp?

    yes but ubuntu isnt as mainstream as redhat and cent os is basically redhat. Remember most companies use redhat simply because it has a bit more recognition than any other distros it also seems to have better support than others but ive only been in or worked at 7 different companies all of which used redhat or cent os to list a few lockheed martin ibm nanoisi eag the company down the hall from nanoisi the company my brother worked at and the company hosting the web page for the current company I work for as the webmaster.Looking for my head ............... yeah the eight valve one yeah ....

    All the big corporate companies runs RHEL and to cut costs CentOS.  
     
    But there is more debian-based installs than redhat-based installs. 65% for debian-based, 20% for redhat-based, 15% goes to the other linux distros.  
     
    In order of server deployments it goes ubuntu, debian, centos, fedora, rhel.  
     
    Fry's runs on FC2. It's retarded to install RHEL without support contracts but then there's CentOS the next best thing cause you can find online support, free updates and no licensing. The number one revenue generating linux os is RHEL. $1200/yr per server, 15k/yr per mainframe. RedHat sales guys are that good.

    i dont know about that for true server deployments but for personal computers (also home office type servers) i think that is accurate. for most corporate servers I think it goes something more like centos fedora rhel ubuntu suse debian. The reason for suse is i heard it has decent firewall support but i could be wrong. frys also had an old version of rhel 3 or something running on a few that I saw.Looking for my head ............... yeah the eight valve one yeah ....

    6072798 Mac Mini 2.26GHz
    I was dying to get one of this mac mini. I waited long time to have this on sale. But frys.com and frys store tricked me and treated me like a fool. The they mac mini was on sale I went online select a store and item was available on one store near my area. I went to checkout for store pick up option and everything went through. Next morning I got email saying item not available in store. Order not ready for pickup. I called frys.com and asked he (CSR) asked me to call the store. I did and somebody put me on hold till it hangup. Next thing I went online did the whole process again since item was available on selected store. After a minute I got email saying same thing again. So I headed to the fry's store 18 mile away from my house and the store had three mac mini on the front counter and csr said already booked for somebody who is not coming anyway. What a trick. I asked one guy on computer section where is 499 mac mini he stared at me and said where is 499 mac mini where did you see it. For instant I thought I was making myself fool. What a trick from Fry's. Anyways good job guys fooling around with people. What a false advertisement even store clerk doesn't know that. And CSR wasn't ready to sell me one. Of course not it's selling on 599 @ apple.com so they are definitely not there to lose any money!!! But it's all good I came back home and bought one from Amazon.com for 555 which was almost the same price they were offering after tax and accessories. Now on I won't shop on fry's in my entire life and would not recommend anyone being attracted to fake price sales from frys.com. Just some thoughts.......

    Don't forget to report Fry's to the IRS. As an ex-employee of 2 years, I have seen many fraudulent acts of lude business conduct from money laundering to mistreatment of employees' wages & commission. The company is profiting $500,000 each year from lost wages & untrackable money loss from customers & employees in one store. I have showed evidence of such wrong miscalculations of GP (Gross Profit) to Upper Management who threw away the paperwork & made up excuses why the numbers are showing up wrong in the POS system. Also, the cashiers would intentionally not use the Sales quote from customers hence the Sales Rep. losing his/her commission & the net gross profit ends up going to the company's pocket. The company has violated constitutional rights by intentionally creating scenerios to fire employees to avoid paying unemployment insurance claims. The company's unlawful business conduct must be reported in order for the company owners be arrested for criminal charges. Millions of money are not being reported & the owners of the company are expanding their Corporation by buying lands, real estates, & other companies. The Fry's brothers are not the only shareholders to the company, but other grocery store owners (Ralph's, Safeway, etc.) who are investing on Fry's Electronics. I have reported Fry's Electronics to the IRS & to the State's Attorney General. We need more people to report all the misconduct and criminal acts that goes on at Fry's Electronics. Too many Corporations are getting away with millions of money while the hard-working employees are being screwed over.
