FRIDAY 7 JULY 2006

FANBOYS!! Beyond Geekdom!!!

OBITER DICTOR

What did I say? I said that I was going to be holiday and will be taking a break in June and the strip will return in July. Didn't I say that? I'm sure I did.

I was back in very late June and wanted to get right down to it and get the update up on like 1st July or something like that.

But wouldn't you know it - my Mac had to break down. The power supply apparently failed and I had to get it replaced. I wentto this place and they said that they had to do a diagnosis first. They couldn't. They knew that the power supply failed and had to be replaced. I knew that too. I didn't have to pay them like $50 to find out what the problem was when I already knew that! That took one week.

Then, to do the repairs would cost me another $300, parts and labor. Which I could spend on a whole new computer instead by adding another couple of hundreds more. I thought about that. But the new OS cannot support my existing software or drivers. So I couldn't just get a new computer. Thought about switching to my new PC but then I could not access my files from this particular HD so I gave that up too. In the end, I shelled out the money to get it replaced.

When it was repaired, I went to shop only to pick up the wrong computer, i.e. someone else's computer. So I had to get it returned and mine returned to me. That was today. So I figured that I had better quickly get this updated as I promised.
