There is computer tinkering in the air, plus Friendly Fill Ins


Welcome to Friday on my blog

Friday, finally, YES!

But, there’s a problem. 1st problem – I still got the work day ahead of me. 2nd my computer, I have finally given up on fixing it. I built it just over a year ago and ever since had nothing but issues. I am convinced that it is still the mobo (a.k.a. motherboard). I tried everything, even RMAed it to ASUS, because it is a high end one for gaming and freakin’ expensive. But you know what? My nerves and sanity are worth more. So today I am calling it a loss.

Since I can hardly live without a real computer, you will probably find me this afternoon in our local computer hardware candy store looking with big eyes at all the toys for nerds – hahaha. And one of those toys, at least a new mobo, from a different manufacturer this time, will come home with me. And then I will probably spend the weekend tinkering and cussing and cursing and – hopefully – also some gaming and creating.

Maybe filming, too. How would you like a few more videos, timelapsed or not about some of my creations?

Anyways, since I had this post prepared, I will also be joining the McGuffy’s Reader and Friday Friendly Fill ins. I hope you’ll enjoy.

  1. My middle name is …..Yup, you read that correctly as ‘none’, I don’t have one.
  2. I like surprises.
  3. The Super Bowl doesn’t interest me the slightest bit, none, at all, zip.
  4. My favourite sport is windsurfing, of course!! 

I cannot promise that I will have a sARTurday linkup post up early tomorrow, so please bear with me on that one.Cheers,



If I have time I will be linking with one or more of the fine people in this collection – check them out!

My current and cursed computer build (and David’s)

And the culprit, the bad mobo, without any other hardware attached yet, as you can see in some of the other photos. Actually, in one of them you can see one of my old GPUs, got a much better one now 🙂

  1. I have,sitting on my dining room floor, hard drives from office that I have to destroy. I am looking at “renting” two of the Virginia Rowing Association rowers (they rent themselves out on weekends to do odd jobs in order to make money to fund their sport since UVA does not fund them). I wan them to dress in black, wear sunglasses and take these drives to the middle of the street. Destroy them by bashing them with bats and sledgehammers. Would be a fun film to make. I hope you find the right mobo. I could not live without a computer. Sad but true.

  2. Great answers, thank you for participating. You are the second one in the fill-ins without a middle name, prior to this I thought everyone had a middle name. Have a great weekend not watching the Superbowl 🙂
