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.

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.

FUS should bring back the artist galleries.

Normally when the site breaks everyone looks at me.   Basically because I have been known to break things when I tinker around..Or de-admin myself..Or forget to re-register the domain.. Well the list kind of goes on.   Thankfully I have Kef and Bakuda who..generally know how to fix things.   This past Wednesday wasn't anything I did..Nor any of my tech staff.   What happened was a massive downtime throughout our hosts VPS and Dedicated servers.   Because I still run FUS on a VPS configuration..  that included us.

To quote






















a message from our CEO
Dear Paul,
On April 16 we experienced an outage that affected a portion of our customers. We want to sincerely apologize for any impact this may have had on your websites, email, and other online efforts.
We traced the interruption back to a complex and undocumented firmware bug in one of our vendor’s hardware solutions, specifically some of our network routers. Once the problem was identified we immediately worked with the vendor to create and deploy a firmware update and custom configuration to fix it. We want to emphasize that none of your confidential information was ever compromised and that your account data remains safe and secure.


 

 

So basically all is good now.  This isn't a big news update but I figured I would inform the lot of you before people start thinking I broke something else.

Cheers,

Paul

No worries, Chief. We'll find some way to pin it on you anyway.
