my old faithful desktop machine died today.
I liked him. In an age where everyone uses laptops the humming of his massive fans was a cliff in an ever changing sea of handheld wankery.

I will buy a new one once I get time to actually play games again.

How does one input information into water vapor? I hear putting information "on the cloud" is a new trend, but from my understanding of science if I drop my hard drive onto a cloud it would fall right through.

Might just need a new power supply or battery (for the CMOS/clock).
At least keep the HD OFC.

First step - trepanation, to allow the air elementals in.
Step the second - some form of sustainable flight - i.e : a trebuchet roughly the size of Kuala Lumpur.
Step III - mine bitcoins from low orbit while playing solitaire on secondary monitor. icon_drunk

Yeah might be the power supply. Upon startup something causes it to shut down after a few seconds.

If I can be arsed I'll try switching.

Could even be the on-switch itself.

(Disconnect it and use motherboard power button to test.)
