Happy birfday Lans!
So if you meet me have some courtesy, have some sympathy and some taste. Use all your well-learned politesse or I'll lay your soul to waste.

Thanks a hell of a lot to all youse guys. <3

It's been a weird kind of year. But I'm coming out of it feeling like it keeps getting better.

Interesting story: As some of you know, my good computer exploded around midsummer. Since then, I've been scarce in WoW, mostly just on for raid nights, thanks to the fact that the older computer of mine is crap, and it's painful to try playing games on it (well, except for Touhou).

Fortunately, this is no longer a problem. My good computer is fixed, with a new hard drive, a legal copy of Windows 7 (there has to be some good karma there), around 2.25 TB of hard drive space (in science words, that means a metric fuckton), and a return to a chipset that is actually upgradeable. After this weekend, I'll probably have an actual presence in-game once again (leveling that goddamn Lansadin), so effing yay.

The interesting thing is what was actually wrong with it.

See, I thought it was the motherboard at first. Had it replaced--twice. Didn't work, but then it seemed likely that it was something else. Time being not-aplenty, I only had a few opportunities to try screwing around with other bits of hardware to see where the issue may lie. Power supply? Worked fine. CPU? Golden. RAM? Perfect. Video card? Pssh.

Only last week I actually found out what it was, when a friend of mine who's an IT professional (hired through payment of food) threw up his hands and tried the last thing anyone thought of: replacing the CPU fan.

It worked.

My CPU fan was the faulty part, and the motherboard refused to boot anything up unless it sensed some kind of cooling apparatus over the all-important processor.

Half a year without a decent computer because of a $15 piece of equipment.

The moral of the story: Anytime something breaks, check the stupidest part first.
