Hey, everyone! Sorry I've been absent the past couple of days. I woke up Friday morning to discover that my beloved HP Media Center PC went tango uniform. (That's what J. said anyway. For us regular non-military folks, that means it bit the dust.) No amount of coaxing, whispering sweet nothings, or direct threats from myself and 3 other IT folks could bring it back to the living. I suspect it's either a bad power supply or the motherboard.
The PC's 4 or 5 years old so replacing the motherboard really isn't worth it. You can't even get the one that is a close approximation to what is in there. J. is whispering in my ear that my birthday is coming up in 3 weeks or so, so maybe it's time to just replace it. Yeah.....computer shopping! :-)
I hope to be back up and running this evening and I'm looking forward to making the rounds to everyone's blogs and seeing what you've been up to.
Have a great Sunday!
