Bring on the swarm of locust…

I am officially having a bad day.

In the past 24 hrs the following has happened:

  • My 3 moth old Gainward 6600GT graphic card has fried itself to death playing Battlefield2.
  • My Seagate 80Gb S-ATA hard-disk failed while I was out buying milk.
  • My cat decided she needed more leg room while lounging next to my keyboard and so kicked my scanner off the desk and onto the floor, thus breaking the glass and twisting the body.

So, through acts of God and vindictive felines I’m down about 3000 SEK in hardware.

The scanners knackered, the hard disk is out of warranty but hopefully I can get a replacement graphic card from the company that supplied it to me.

And before you ask, I don’t know why the card and hard-disk failed in the same day. My rig is pulling 350W max and my PSU is rated for 450W and running fine. Nothing is overclocked, case temp is fine and its got more fans than The Beatles. Jesus just hates me.

Sorry to hear Jed. I’d sell the cat and buy a new graphics card. 🙂

Tomorrow can’t be any worse can it?

Jesus has never hated you, but I’d wonder about your cat. 😀

OMG! Bro. I am having an equal shittier day. I feel for you and for some reason everyone I interact with is having the same problems. Not cause of me but it’s just happening.

My video card is acting like shit cause it’s ATI and ati’s support is not helpfull at all. Then my PSU started smoking and to make matters worse that’s the second PC in my home that has done that this week.

I went to TacoBell and they burnt my grilled stuffed burrito to hell but didn’t find out until I got home and on the way home my car stereo stopped working after it was turing itself on and off saying, “Hello”,”Seeyou”,Hello seeyou I FEEL YA!
