Mailbag has a nerd party
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where
we read all of your emails, even the ones that make us really, really mad. But let�s begin
with some that don�t!
James writes in to say,
hey just heard a cnet.com reference on the show modern family! soon you'll all be celebs
I KNOW! That was awesome!
I have to say that when we found out about this, um, CNET pretty much just turned into
one big nerd party because WE�RE ON TV!! Yep. Nerds.
Scott writes in to say I, Molly, saved his, um, bottom. He says:
Dear Molly - I bought a D-Link router when my old G router died last weekend. Now,
I'm a geek, but when my wireless G devices could connect to the router, but NOT get an
IP address, I was stumped. � I was cruising CNET, and found your How-To video,
"Advanced Wireless" �When you mentioned Dual Band routers, Windows clients, and
WEP being a bad mix, it clicked! I went home, changed my router and all clients to
WPA. BOO YAH! Molly Wood to the rescue! Everything, from desktop to Tivo to
NetFlix to old Wireless Print Server, is back up and humming along nicely. You, Ms.
Wood, saved me a lot of time, frustration, and potentially wasted money. You are a Rock
Awesome! If I can just help one person � I�m happy. And Al wrote to Tom to say:
Dude thank you CNET, not only do you teach people about great tech devices
but you're also explain in a very down to earth way what is going on with
Google and China War. Thanks so much for being awesome and helping me
personally understand what is going on.
Al? You are WELCOME. Now, to some people who aren�t so happy with us. Pierre says:
I can't believe you have the audacity to display a games your excited for this year link on
today's front page, and then leave out God of War 3. That was either a conscience
decision or a lapse, either way it is one of the most idiotic moves your editors have let
slip so far this year. I mean You remembered modnation Racers ??? but not God of War
3??? you guys are seriously ridiculous
Heh. I don�t know what happened with that list, but I just loved Pierre�s righteous rage.
There are no fanboys like gaming fanboys.
And finally, Quentin writes with the misleading subject line, �? For M.�
Having watched you cover the CES, I must observe that the long hair and the bleach
bottle just don�t do it.
How many times do we have to review this.
BRING BACK VERONICA!
Quentin? Why would you even bother to send me that email? That�s just gratuitously
dickish. And I don�t even think Veronica would appreciate it, because she? Is a nice
Anyway, email me whatever you want at at Mailbag@cnet.com, or send your snail mail
to 235 2nd St., San Francisco, CA, 94105. Thanks for watching, everyone.
