No, I'm not sure if un-functional is a word. It probably isn't. Ah, well.
As you've probably noticed, the site hasn't been updated since Thursday, and I apologize for that. I THOUGHT I had a functional computer on my hands when I picked it up after work on Thursday, and it started up okay. Turns out that the guy from the computer shop replaced the cooling fan, and I thought everything was good.
However, I was wrong. Apparently whatever happened with the motherboard managed to hose up the video card, too. As a result, the computer still shuts down after a certain amount of time. This, as you can imagine, ticks me off. My current computer is the first one I built from parts with my own little hands, and after 4 1/2 years of faithful service, it appears as though it's gotten to the point of "not being worth fixing."
But fear not, good readers. . .for early next week, I should have a replacement in my hot little hands. More details on that after I get it set up.
So hang in there, gang. . .DN isn't dead. It's just resting. Possibly pining for the fjords. But I'll be back sooner as opposed to later. Until then, keep up the diaries (since I see there's been a couple over the last few days) and I'll be back to you tomorrow with. . .well, something. I'm not sure what, but it'll be something.
