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 the computer I built for my family died, in much the same mysterious manner as the one my mother's did. working fine and then dead one day. A friend drove me and the one I built over to Geek squad and they said the motherboard was probably dead due to a power surge.
Appearently, if the power dies and then comes back on quick enough, the power surge can hit the computer before the surge protector has a chance to actually, you know, PROTECT!
So I need to replace two motherboards and get a UPS or two in the future.
So while i deal with the fact that a power surge is an act of god and most likely not covered by my warranty, i need to buy a UPS.
