I am not gone

A quiet place at the lagoon side for speaking about all and nothing (the financial crisis, sex, your country, sex, hobbies, or...sex)

I am not gone

Postby Skelaturi » Wed, 16Jun22 03:10

Just a small statement for everyone, considering i had a few pm's in my inbox. I am not gone, but my computer died a few weeks ago. Helping myself with loaning computers and laptops from friends, but that does mean i can't access the Lagoon as much as i prefer. The money saving has started, estimated time for a new computer (without luck) is 2-3 months. After that i am hoping to access the Lagoon on a daily basis again.

With luck it's still 2-3 months. I am trying to buyout a bank on a savings program I entered a couple (5) years back. But not knowing how much that will give me cause the letter with info should have arrived weeks ago, last week we came to the conclusion they send it to a older address of mine, even when i told them I had moved. Idiots learned to get better jobs and "how to keep someones else his money 101"

Anyway nice talk, speaking to you soon.

Warning post contains computer talk, i your translating tool can't handle it. I am sorry for that.

For those interested and still believing i am gone. Yes, not believing it myself considering i am still on quite some time. It's good to have the room for yourself. Anyway: If all goes well with the suppliers the final parts for the computer come in tomorrow. Then it's just assembling the thing, ergo hoping my friend has time for that and then carrying it to my man-cave. Building will take a few hours, installing windows,

For those interested what the computer is going to be like:
Short answer: It's going to be quite powerful

Advanced and long answer:

CPU: Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor

Hmm, makes my Chillblast Defiant 2 laptop look a smidgen underpowered even if I do have the same amount of RAM -- still, 4 i7 cores of 13" HD (that's "High Definition", Lou!) easy portability has certain advantages over a hot desktop tower!

I'll give you real deal on a 286 with both a 5.25 and a 3.5 floppy... DOS machine, never has had windows installed. I Purchased it while in Germany (sent to my APO), late 85 early 86. Computer Products United runs at 8 or if in turbo, 12. A full megabyte of ram... She was well ahead of her time.

Ooh, a whole megabyte of ram -- you'd have needed Quarterdeck's QUEMM memory manager to make the most of that. My first PC was a 16/20 MHz 286 AT clone with the same amount of memory as that hard wired onto the motherboard. My son practically cut his teeth on it playing with Amy's First Primer and Ernie's Big Splash (Sesame Street game) -- now he's 30 years old with a PhD in robotics!

well this isn't a tower i got, it's a lan-box Image

and look it has handles. Still a laptop has easier portability.

Oh, almost forgot it works.

edit:

celebrated to soon, saw a flash of light heard a POW and now the power-supply has died.

Ouch! Sorry to hear that. Hopefully, the power supply can be swapped out quickly.

Did you figure out where the short is?
Or just a defective power supply?

probably a rare case of DOA (Death on Arrival), sigh i should have known better then going for a PSU (power-supply unit) of th Corsair brand. Then again this was a higher tier one.

It's been a while since I built my own PCs having shifted to laptops for their convenience -- mind you, unlike the Chillblast Defiant 2 Clevo based 13", my other main machine the 17" Dell isn't all that convenient, particularly since the hinges seized! Did a quick google and found that there's nothing really to dislike about your Corsair PSU apart from an often noisy sleeve-bearing fan -- reliability is usually among their good points and you should be able to get it replaced easily enough under their three year warranty.

Actually, if I was in your position I think I would have gone for something like the Be Quiet Pure Power 9 700W PSU -- low noise has always been a preference of mine and it's slightly cheaper than the Corsair too.

3 years. No good sir, you are mistaken

The Dutch site. Search for the worth "Garantie" which is warranty in Dutch and you might shock yourself. ( Or translate the whole page and search for warranty, either way is good)
