I was treated to a wonderful surprise when I got home tonight.
Ah, the sound of plastic and metal grinding. The sound was coming from my computer!!.
After investigating I found the problem to be one of my fans. The motor bearing failed on it.
I then removed it and proceeded to restart my computer, only to realize the machine was hanging at the POST. I began to sweat. So I began unplug parts till I found out which one was malfunctioning. Luckily on my first guess I pulled one of my hard drives. I was correct, it was my windows xp disk. With that sigh of relief I am back online.
The computer gods have shown me what happens to those who do not pay tribute.
What would a fitting tribute be?
First born child (don't have one)
Sacrifice a laptop?
Maybe offer them the blood of Steve Jobs or Bill Gates?
All hail the omnipotent beings who watch over our computers!!
