"Murphy was an optimist!"
Overwhelmed by broken things October 7, 2009 1:11 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life
These past few weeks have not been good from the hardware side of things. My phone is on its way out but Sarah’s phone died an odd death. She jumps to the front of the new phone line which I think puts her on her 2nd upgrade before Cathy or I have had a single upgrade. My new 500 GB hard drive lasted one day and I’m so torn up over it I’m ignoring it so when I finally get around to looking at it (today) I fully expect NewEgg to give me a hard way to go on issuing a refund. I will never buy a hard drive that isn’t Seagate again! The van battery died without warning. Something is wrong with the hvac. The list goes on.
Today I turn the tide! I’m stepping into my phone booth and mild mannered lethargic depression man is going to turn into super manic Mr. Fix-it! Maybe I’ll even make some vidcasts.
Update: drive appears to work in a different computer. That leaves the problem as an ide controller or cable problem on the primary machine.
Update: Problem resolved. The ide cable had accidentally been pulled loose when I was fooling around inside the case. Oops.trackback
