Lately I’ve been buying a lot of anime/game junk….
I figured I might as well post some reviews at some point and revive this site.
This picture, incidentally, is from nearly 2 years ago – Pinky’s Arcueid, Palm Scenery Shirou and Saber, and some Legend of the Galactic Heroes ships from Yellow Submarine.
Very effective at clearing rooms indeed… haha..
On June 16th, a bolt of lightning struck a tree next to my house and killed my motherboard and all of our networking equipment. On June 21st, I officially declared my newly built replacement system “fully operational.”
On June 24th, I started getting strange lockups in Windows, and failure to proceed past POST. At first I thought the DVD-ROM drive was faulty, since the lockup started happening when scanning the drive list… but that was not the problem. Next I was afraid that it was the Southbridge (with its somewhat inadequate cooling) on my new Asus P5B going bad…
After quite a bit of aggravation, I found out one of my 2 Western Digital 500GB SATA drives had errors and became unmountable. Removing the drive seems to have fixed the problem. Fortunately, there wasn’t a whole lot on the drive.
Looks like I’ll be returning that one to newegg for a refund, and getting a retail drive at Yubtseb because I don’t trust Fedex.
Deadlines and Death. This show is awesome BTW.
