Apparently my computer has decided to make it an annual thing to throw a hissy-fit in August. A year ago one of my external hard drives died and just yesterday, I was on my computer, paying my bills and listening to a podcast when it just went black. I tried restarting it, but no dice. The fan comes on, but not even the startup picture or the regular "no hard drive found" error (yes, it's insane that that's part of a regular start-up. I know.). Now, I know that there have been some problems with the voltage being lower than it's supposed to be, but this is ridiculous. Am I going to have to switch to a laptop for my gaming just to avoid involuntary shutdowns because the damn power company can't deliver proper electricity? I mean, they have already fried my internet modem a couple of years ago, made the lights in my stereo all stroby (I know that's not a word, but work with me here) and made my dvd-player go all weird when I try to turn it off. I'm getting seriously annoyed here.
...or maybe this is the universe's way of paying me back for my right knee no longer hurting. (If so, I'll keep my bad back and left knee for now. Just stay away from my laptop.)
