The timing of this is thread is ironic.
Just today I needed to place a support call for an E2111 - SBE Log Disabled DIMMx error (where x represents the DIMM slot) I am getting on the display on one of my PowerEdge 1950 systems. It's a problem I have experience in the past on a couple of the other 1950's we have in our VMware cluster.
When I finally was able to locate the correct support number to call (literally minutes between screen updates on their support site as it looked up my service tag info and returned the correct number to call) and got through to a technician, I mentioned how painfully slow their web sites (both the support site and the Premier site linked to through Cstore) are. The technician said they have been complaining internally about the speed of their web sites for the past several months. His suggestion to me, blog about it. I was like WTH.
My response was how sad it is that in order for an issue to get the attention of the higher-ups, someone has to blog about it and have it get press coverage before steps are taken.
Such is the way of the world these days.
