Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So as of last night I've begun to have power failures whenever my space heater is plugged in and my PC is on. This would be entirely understandable if it wasn't a new development. I've used the same set up for about two weeks without experiencing any sort of power outage. I have at times had lights on, the heater, my pc, and the television without any problems.
So I left my apartment for a few days and when I return a few nights later i'm making a post on PA. I press "submit reply" and bam. Everything goes dark. I try to use just the PC and the space heater. . it's successful for a while but then I go to hulu and bam. Everything's out.
Now I have turned off just about everything I can think of that's elsewhere in the apartment but the problem persist. It's important to note that only the electricity in my room decides to vanish and my roommates are unaffected.
Why would my heater suddenly cause this problem? I've tried plugging it into the surge protector and a few other locations but to no avail. It's fucking cold.
