i woke up this morning to a cold tower. this is really really bad, as i generally prop my leg up on my tower with my foot behind the power supply fan to help keep me warm. today i tried that and my leg almost stuck to the top of the case.
so of course, i was like "wtf?" because, although my computer sporatically restarts, it does not just sporatically shut off. so.... the only way my tower could be cold is if shawn turned off my puter.
shawn is asleep on the floor, so i can't ask him.
so i check livejournal for a bit and shawn eventually wakes up long enough to tell me that my processor fan was clacking, and that's why he turned it off.
this kinda sucks, because a double fan for a slot processor is like $15 and i'm planning on upgrading (soon) anyways.... so it'd just be throwing that money away.
i've been having dreams about the g5.... oh how i want that computer.... it is sleek aluminum perfection. and for the setup i want, it'll only be $5k. $5k is over 3 times what i paid for my car. :\
i also have to get all legal copies of my software before i graduate. so i can still get that snazzy student discount, and can actually do professional work.
all that is gonna bust my ass, even with a student discount. quark alone is a $900 piece of software, and they don't give student discounts. :\
wow! i hate money more and more with each passing day. i'm telling you, barter system, i believe that all that software should be paid for with a goat, 2 chickens, and 3 batches of my homemade cinnamon rolls.
