Jumped the Gun

Okay, so I got a little over-optimistic on that last post there. Fortunately, fate was standing by to put me in my place...

Friday was totaly fucked come morning. Press power and all I could get was two short beeps and five long beeps. WTF?>!?!?!

So I haul it back to the shop that afternoon and tell my man there "WTF LOL!" and he's all like "OMG BBQ!" and so we plug it in there and guess what? She works! Fucking great.

So I slink back home humbled by life at large. I go through the routine of trying Friday in different places around the flat since obviously it's not just a hardware issue, it's something agravated by environment. But sure enough, nothing works. I pull the plug on CSN's computer and hook Friday up there and sure enough, no dice.

So I ended up taking her up to Hakkakenland to see if the 4-yr old could fix the computer. Nope, no luck there either. Ah-ha! It's not just my place! The hardware is fucked!

So I replaced all the core components and now she's up and faster then ever. Then again, this is her first night up so she may be down again tomorrow. But check this out... I put a 1GB OCZ dual-channel RAM kit on a DFI nF4 Ultra-D mobo with an AMD64 Winchester core and a spanky new BFG 6600 GT PCI-Express video card. Woo! Set me back a couple bones for sure but this hardware is totaly bitchin! I'm so down, you know what I'm sayin? Dag!

Hopefully she'll boot again tomorrow. That would be swell. Did I mention I hate life?
