I'm glad to hear you won't be computer-less, but I absolutely understand that you won't be doing any advanced simming. Aging laptops should be treated kindly. * Nix fondly pets Lilleman. Then she also pets Signe the Schnauzer, just so she (dog) won't get jealous
Reminds me of the thirteenth and last PC I built myself... Three years ago, when I put it together, all components were top-off-the-line. Cost me around €1,500!
I built it, installed Windows XP, configured everything, tested some games... everything fine. Switched it off, went to bed, and started up the monster the next day... NOTHING: Harddisk fried!
Put in a new HD, installed everything again... took me several hours once more... Everything fine. Switch off, go to bed, start up next morning... NOTHING: Harddisk fried again!
That most expensive failure has been sitting under my desk for about three years now. It should have blown everyone's socks off with its awesome processing power, but it's total and utter crap
That said, if there is anything I can do to help, like testing things for you, let me know. I would be happy to help.
BO - aww, that super sucks. I wanted to build my own computer but was scared I might not be able to, and end up with a lot of expensive bits and no PC.
@ Lev - yay - I hope you get your PC - will be so cool for you
@ Shell - well, the biggest issue is that half the time I have no idea whether things will show in game til I test it - thats how I mod things - whack em with the big fish hammer until they give up and work
@ Xander - yea, I have rage moments too. I try not to think about it and at least your urinal was so far advanced that fansee could step in and help
