    G5 Drabble

    Just something that occurred to me and I felt like typing it out. Posted here with minimal (very minimal) proofreading.

    Probably not something I'm continuing, but this is the sort of thing I kinda want to be reading with G5...

    Spoilers for G5, I suppose.

    Status on hard drive

    Well, when I woke up this morning, a new hard drive was on my doorstep.

    Stuck it in my laptop during lunch, and started working with it after work. This hard drive works fine, and I got it set up as my new home folder relatively easily.

    I hooked the old hard drive up to usb, and tried to see what I could get from it.

    Yay, hard drive problems

    My blogs are always about computer problems, aren't they?

    The computer most of them have been about is fine. I've got several computers, though. The one that had all the motherboard issues was the main desktop.

    The other personal computer I use a lot is a laptop. It's a thinkpad that has in it not only a 240 GB SSD, but a 1 TB hard drive and a 500 GB hard drive.

    Incidentally...

    That processor that I said may be a little slow, but seemed reasonable? It wasn't reasonable. It was dragging down some of my games, speed-wise. I replaced it with a 3700X I got during the prime sales, and I'm kinds figuring I'll just build a little computer around the other one some time, since it does have graphics built in, which the replacement doesn't. It would've been fine if this wasn't my

    Forgot to mention...

    Remember that computer that was acting up? I was just realizing that I never mentioned what I ultimately did about that, so I'm doing that now.

    First, while I didn't absolutely need to, I bought a new case for it, because I didn't really like the old one.

Can you guess... · 7:43pm April 10th

...which computer of mine is down again?

Yeah, I thought getting it working was too easy. It froze again, got it working again, and now it's back to not starting up again, only this time with just the motherboard and power supply, so I'm assuming it is the motherboard or cpu. I'll probably have to get a new one.

I did remember that I've not a not-perfectly good gaming laptop around I can substitute for it, though. It was a cheap gaming laptop that I found out how cheap it was after buying it. The computer works fine, but the part of the case the display is in is all busted where it can't close or really move very well, and the keyboard is pretty sucky.

What I've done is stuck it behind the monitor for the downed computer, hooked up the monitor, keyboard, and mouse to that, and I'm letting it pretend to be a desktop until I get the motherboard straightened out. It's not as good of a gaming computer, but for a laptop, it's still pretty good at gaming, as I recall. The gpu and actual computer was good, but everything else sucked.

And again, I have other computers, just being down a gaming/art computer is irritating, and my internet provider's been all cappy on data recently. Pretty sure I can get by with this for a bit, though.
