  1. So I spend £90 on a new AC adaptor for my laptop. I even say to zarkyb on #zdoom, "ooh zark, PSU is the most important thing in any PC, and I've replaced mine, no expense spared."

    Well turns out it wasn't the adaptor after all. So much for painstaking deductive process. I honestly believe it shuts off randomly like this, because it IS alive and wants to annoy me. Why else would it work perfectly when my parents visited yesterday, and they could have taken it home with them to be fixed by our local shop? No, now I have to drive the fucker all the way back home some time this week, and I need to start writing my semester essays for uni. I also have to post that adaptor back.

    I fucking hate things that don't work SOME OF THE TIME. Either work or don't work you piece of shit. You have no idea how tempting it was to beat seven shades of shit out of it this morning.

    Still, it could be worse, I could be Airraid and have lost some finger I guess. All fingers still present and correct. Or I could be ZarkyB, and Scottish. Heh.

    Anyway to give this rant some purpose other than making me feel better, when has technology let you down in the most spectacular and complete way imaginable?

      Maybe the CPU fan quit? Computers used shut off whenever the fan quit, I don't know if they still do. I figure nowadays they have a siren or something.

      Nope, not that.

      They've agreed to fix it, whatever it takes, free of charge. As it's out of warranty that's awesome, in spite what Shockwav3 says about Medion :P
