Woody & Ted: "That Smell"
Posted: Thursday June 2nd, 2011 by

Before you give me crap about how often my computer breaks...
Yes my computer did indeed crash again. And this time my Ghosted C couldn't save it. I had to completely bash it to shreds and start from scratch. Now, I personally don't think I beat up on my computer any harder than anyone else. I know for a fact that my gear is aging however.

My hard drive has it's crotchety moments where it waves its cane at me and I end up having to fix a suddenly, inexplicably corrupted registry. And my RAM has been a little flakey from the moment I bought it. Add that to the fact that my computer gets used 16 hours or more a day and you have a recipe for a system that seems to flop about taking what seems to be its last breaths a bit too often. But, I somehow manage to bring it back from the brink. Toss it back in the pond and wait for the next mishap.

Now, I have taken some steps toward a happier machine, I've got a new primary drive and a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate on the way. But that really only solves part of the problem. What I really need is a complete overhaul. My mother board, processors, and both video cards just aren't living up to their former potential anymore.

So... anyone want to "sponsor" GU and send some new gear my way?
I'm looking at you folks-that-work-in-the-newegg-marketing-department. (All none of you.)

[NOTE: If your post about how my computer breaks too often mysteriously disappears, I have no idea what happened to it. **coughs**]
