sad computer. sad service.

sad computer. sad service.

Gah. What a day What a dayโ€ฆ Spent most of today buzzing around Toronto. B. had many spots and I wanted to try and see what was wrong with my AMD Box. What you ask? -smirk- Well. Nothing. Apparently ~~~~ there have been some changes in motherboards and AGP slots since the last time I installed a Video card. Apparently ~~~~ now there is a lock on the end of the AGP slot to lock 1x 4x and 8x cards downโ€ฆ something that was absent from mobos Iโ€™ve previously worked with. And wait.. there is moreโ€ฆ In addition, Iโ€™m also used to the mobo beeping if something is incorrectly installedโ€ฆ such as any card, ram or CPU. No beeping. Soโ€ฆ What I did was install the video card without โ€˜lockingโ€™ it downโ€ฆ it halted the system completely! No beeping no love, no notice. GAHHHH. At least I learnt something grasshopper. I also learnt it is worth it to spend a few extra dollars and get to get good customer service. Esp. if you are accustomed to it. The guys I dealt with at Etc. seemed rather indifferent, and slightly annoyed to be assisting meโ€ฆ I asked a few questions and none were answered. When he was doneโ€ฆ he barely said anything, and just walked awayโ€ฆ (not to mentioned that I DID hear him talk in another language to his co-workers in the back which was followed by laughing right after he went back thereโ€ฆ which is fine it was a simple mistake, butโ€ฆ see if you get my business again..)

Many hours later, a nasty drive home in rain, a battle with software and OSes and Iโ€™m pretty beat. Iโ€™m (gawd only knows why) going to try XP once more. It is better for gaming, and Iโ€™m only running XP for gaming and a few apps soโ€ฆ DIG IT.

This may be incoherent.. it is late and Iโ€™m going to bed.
