Hardware Problems

Looks like I lost another of my old drives last night. Bleh.

Was the one I cloned the drive in my Mini with. It would randomly disconnect from my system. It was one of the oldest ones I had and the rate at which these things have been dying off lately I should have almost expected it.

Replaced both the data cable and the power brick and it finally just seems to have stopped spinning the platter(s). Got newer ones I can use but fark! Makes my ass hurt.

Just makes that dreaded clicky - skritch - scratch noise that they all seem to make right before they croak.

And the dang mouse I use is looking like it is going to break down on me too. Been using it for gaming lately (and everything else too) so I guess I shouldn't really be surprised.

My original iMac is showing screen degradation and drive issues. I probably just need to pour water inside it and trash it for good.

My old Macbook has got superdrive issues. And screen problems, but still chugs along. It's old bones are a little creaky though.

It sucks when it seems that everything is breaking down and has to be replaced at once. :(

Oh no!

I have just found out about a local computer repair guy, and I think I'm going to use him from now on.

But man, your breakdowns are going to be expensive!

Well fortunately I had some equipment already here, so the expense is minimal. The pain in the ass factor is a bit high though.

Oh, I am so glad that the expense is minimal.

I guess it'l keep you off the streets for a while then, hehe :)
