I didn't have the heat on at my place, and I was trying to boot my system when I smelled a burnt odor from the hard drive. Just recently picked up a used one.

@  furrykef : (27 December 2020 - 12:18 PM)

How?

@  Ishapar : (26 December 2020 - 05:31 AM)

Furrykef, if it's any consolation, I just recently burnt my hard drive to a crisp.

@  Nex : (24 December 2020 - 09:41 PM)

Merpy Holimas ya roustabouts!

@  furrykef : (11 December 2020 - 10:23 AM)

Welp. I'm finally attempting to copy files from my old hard drive -- the one that got fried -- to my new one, and things aren't looking good at all.

@  furrykef : (05 December 2020 - 04:19 PM)

The graphics card is taken from my old machine and is currently giving me a hell of a lot of trouble because I'm trying to get Vulkan support in Linux...

@  furrykef : (05 December 2020 - 04:18 PM)

This, except I haven't bought an optical drive or UPS yet: https://pcpartpicker...ef/saved/vsyQqs

@  Nex : (05 December 2020 - 03:17 AM)

What kind of beast did you put together for yourself then Kef?

@  furrykef : (04 December 2020 - 07:41 AM)

Woo! I'm on my new machine.

@  furrykef : (02 December 2020 - 04:04 PM)

Now that all the parts have arrived, I'm not in any mood to actually build the PC.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Welp. The good news is my RAM arrived today. The bad news is I'd misread the package tracking, so my mobo and fan are coming late.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Groan. All my parts are supposed to get here today, except my RAM shipped late, so it will get here Wednesday. And there's no DDR4 RAM anywhere else in the house.

@  furrykef : (23 November 2020 - 04:17 AM)

Me.

@  Nex : (21 November 2020 - 07:11 PM)

All this chat about failing hardware reminds me that I gotta update my GPU n SSD this year. Who'dve thought an M.2 boot drive could get filled entirely by sodding Windows updates >.<

@  tiff15 : (21 November 2020 - 12:28 PM)

computer fans are starting to wonk out, so Im using a laptop for now...Hi all!

@  furrykef : (18 November 2020 - 05:56 AM)

The bad news is my hard drive is busted. So I'm currently on a Linux Mint Live CD. Ain't that fun?

@  furrykef : (18 November 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Whew! I'm finally on my PC after three weeks of not being able to use it.

@  Shadow : (07 November 2020 - 01:51 PM)

FUS should bring back the artist galleries.

So as a lot of you found out today...FUS was broken.  Well to be honest the server was running perfectly fine.  The issue however was in the domain.  It kinda expired on us late last night.   We had (or at least thought) we had it set up to auto renew but..Apparently we didn't.  And of course all of the warnings of "your domain is about to expire" got emailed to John.  Which didn't help much as he is (as a lot of you may know) currently in Afghanistan.

So after work today I went to go renew the domain... The little auto renew button wasn't working..Site kept timing out.. Annoying.
So I went to do what any frustrated person in my position would do....Went to a buddies and drank beer. Oh and ditched the problem on Bakuda's lap.

 

Well later on tonight Bakuda tried to get the thing to renew and had the same issue I did.  However on his last attempt before he gave up for the night it worked.  So yay.  Domain is good for some while longer now.

 

On other news..The fact that the domain ran out means it was 4 years ago when myself and John took over the website.   Wow...Time sure goes by past.

 

Thanks all for your support over the years.

Cheers,

Paul

Thank God that you were able to recover the site. For a moment, I thought the site faded away into the ever expanding void of expired websites on the internet. A terrible fate for many fan websites, including the website that translated the early Sonic manga.

I doubt FUS would disappear for good that suddenly. At least not unless chief, JonBob, and Bakuda had already disappeared for a while.

Course I don't get much of a say in those things.  I just do the grunt work.

Well, really, it was because I didn't figure Red had much power over that sort of thing.

 

And because I'm a jerk.

Alison aka Sonique.   She created FUS back in...I think 2000.  Maybe 2001.  Back then the site shared a forum with TSN (The SatAM Network) although that only lasted for ..less then a year before FUS got its ow forums.
