As of about 20 minutes ago, a good friend of mine passed on. I have known this friend since 2001, and we have spent lots of time together. We have worked together, played together, seen movies together, and even just hung out.
It was in the middle of playing that this friend decided it was time to give up this life and pass on. We were having such a good time together, and it really caught me off guard.
Who was this friend? It was my computer. I know, it's nerdy, but it's just what happened. Something totally overloaded (probably the processor) and popped the power supply. It's possible that just the power supply is done for, but where it's the 4th I've put in the computer, I'm kinda leary of adding a new one. I've put a lot of money into this computer, and upgraded it to the point you'd never know it was a cheap eMachines. Sadly though, if I'm ever going to upgrade, there's virtually nothing from that machine that I will be able to use.
So, for the time being, I have my trusty laptop and a Pentium 4 with 256MB of RDRAM, which I'm currently trying to get Windows installed on. I would just say "why bother" and stick with my laptop, but I need something I can use for my web development work.
So yeah... If anyone wants to donate to the "Build Tim A Computer" fund, there's a nice little Paypal donation link at http://www.skudd.com/ . :)
holds a moment of silence
