So... woke up this morning and couldn't start my computer anylonger... PANIC early in the morning... Started troubleshooting in all kinds of ways and I came to the conclusion my power supply unit burned out somehow...

So if anyone thought I actually stopped playing to go work, think again...


But to make this story even better... I've been doing alot of work plans at least.. Schedules and excel sheets for the maintenance I do (which requires alot of planning and preparation).. Unfortunately my printer ran out of ink in november so I ordered new about a week ago... I got the note from the postoffice yesterday and was supposed to pick it up today, put them in the printer and print all the stuff I need for work.

Well.. Sure, karma for playing games instead of working but if the damn PSU could've waited 12 hours before giving up on me at least I could've printed the maintenance lists....


Ugh... so I ordered a new, hopefully better, PSU which is being sent from Athens by courier... hopefully it'll be here by thursday :/


And oh again, to make things even better... weather forecast for tomorrow is -2 degrees C and around 15m/s of wind.... Which is pretty much as bad as it gets here in Greece.... ARRRGH!

Lol.. got the PSU today and turns out the motherboard was burnt as well... fans started up and all but no power to USB etc etc.... So Im fucked...

But, I ordered a new sandybridge setup, mobo + i5-2500K + 8gb ram so hopefully that hitchin I had such huge problems with in lotro will disappear now!
More importantly I really hope the disks and my graphics card isnt broken as well...

With some luck I'll have the stuff monday or tuesday.. it was shipped with DHL from the UK this afternoon :) Guess it'll take me a good 24hrs+ to get settled with the reinstallation of win7 etc...

Having new problems with the new computer as well, daily crashes and as soon as I start something graphic intensive it goes black. Im working on that....

But whatever, I'm sick and tired of stuff not working and this streak of bad luck I've had won't seem to end so I'm giving up. I'm not going to try to get the online 12gb LOTRO installation just to realize I have to reinstall windows the next day...


Soooo, I'm leaving the computer life earlier than expected to go downtown to drink beer and have fun instead.

Whenever I've fixed my computer and I get some time off I'll be back though, be it a week or four months... who knows... :) Hopefully a week ;)

See you around!
