My Dead Computer [Dec. 13th, 2005|04:01 pm]
[Current Mood |dorkydorky]

It makes me giggle that when I announced the untimely death of my harddrive, someone told me that there is plenty of warning before they go. First I told Mike that the fan in it was really LOUD. He told me that he replaced them all so denial kicked in. Then when I was in Europe, Amy told me it sounded like something was going really wrong in there, so she shut it off. I laughed. So it amuses me greatly that I DID in fact have plenty of warning that it was going and still did nothing to prepare. My foolishness is the reason why I have no music for my new iPod Shuffle and it doesn't yet have a name. I'm taking suggestions. What is a good name for a very small, blind and slightly retarded child? Hopefully I won't act like this when my car starts to have problems, but most likely I'll just turn up the music and keep driving. Huh problems? Don't see any problems.

No disease, short life. One disease, long life. That is supposed to be an ancient chinese medicine saying. Sort of like, Hard drive noise? Short computer life, long data life. No noise, Short data life.

I forgot to mention that the other iPods are named: Camille Creamer and Disco Inferno.

That is a good one, but she wasn't dim witted, just personality enhanced.

...You know, I did warn you it was on it's last legs... And the fans were what was making noise when I had it. At no time during it's stay at my house did the hard drives start singing their dying song. However, there may even yet be ways to get data back out of that raid set. *I SUMMON THE VAST POWER OF CERTIFICATION* Or something like that. :) Fry's has all the appropriate components on ad, guess we should find a mutually acceptable time, and toddle down to Renton, and see what of that stuff is in stock, and buy you the parts for another PC... Drop me a line, and we'll work it out. You've got the #.

I know you warned me, and repeatedly at that, which makes it even funnier. Ahhh denial, more than just a river of Egypt. :) Yeah,..it started making even MORE noise when Amy was over and I still ignored the warning signs. I have given you a call and I bow before the awesome power of certification. (and also pray that my music may be HEALED halleluyah!)
