  • Not in a happy mood recently due to a computer I built for a very close friend's adult daughter failing and not showing any signs of life at all.
    Problem is they are over 1,000K's away and hardware illiterate, so dealing with this over the phone is very frustrating. seems they have a $1,500 paperweight and I have a huge dilemma.

    The dilemma is obviously how to price that service contract... :D

    No but really, for all you know they've been playing volleyball with it. I read hardware illiterate and I kinda know enough tbh. Had similar case a few weeks back. Visited friend, only to find several dead insects and a crapload of dust in that PC. 'It runs hot'... no shit sherlock

    I seriously never managed to find dead critters in my own cases.

    I'd totally turn that off and on again.
    life would be easier if I wasn't on the spectrum and a stickler for rules and standing up for what I believe in. Maybe I should just not give a shit and be self centred like a lot of people that think rules don't apply to them.

    Seriously if they have to do with your previous profile message, good luck they are a nightmare!
    Over ten years as a tenant at my current address, and now I have a month to find somewhere else to live with my boys, kinda sucks.

    I know the feeling. Moving out is, at best, rather annoying, if you were fine with your previous place.

    Same last year for me except no children to move and i had 6 weeks because the place I rented was sold. I do casual shift work so the problem for me wasn't finding a rental but finding one I could afford with moving costs on top. Good luck with it!
    Got the urge to fix something again, might try an A.I.O. for a change for my desktop.

    If you want to fix something, just throw the rig on the floor. Problem solved/created

    And if it stays bigger for 24 hours, do I seek medical attention immediately? Like in the commercials?

    Installed the Asrock X79 Extreme 11 Motherboard in to my new case after straightening a few pins in the socket, and it's crunching like a boss. Xeon processor just dropped in and boots without BIOS modification too, great boards.
    Does anyone else think stuff selling here is mainly overpriced, and wanted to buy budgets are a half price or less joke?

    I don't want to name names and possibly make enemies., but people looking to buy, basically want it given to them.
    My eBay account was hacked, and the email changed to some Ukrainian account. I managed to regain it and reported it and as well I changed my account name, pass word and initiated two step verification. Fuck those scum bags.

    No idea, I assume eBay might have been hacked in the past and details sold on ….
    Need to find some cash to upgrade, or at least build another system to crunch.

    It seems my prayers have been answered, now I just have to wait for the system to arrive and more crunching begins. *sits with a silly grin from ear to ear*

    Cleaned the dust from my A.I.O radiator today, remounted the fan and booted up, that's when the rattling started.

    Turns out the pump shit itself, despite being fine prior, and me not touching it. Luckily I kept the original cooler.
