Be It A Rock Or A Grain Of Sand, In Water They Sink As The Same

by Rainier on May 3, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Well, my tinkering with the new quad core came to a screeching halt today. I managed to find an IDE to SATA adapter at Fry's, but I couldn't get it it work properly despite its fairly simplistic installation. The PC wouldn't recognize it at all, and then for some reason, it wouldn't even boot up anymore. This turned out to not be true at all, as my monitor just decided to have hiccups and turn black. Bottom line, I put my old dual core back together, so that I at least have a workstation, and I'll try again this weekend, when I have more time.

Been playing some APB, Stronghold Kingdoms and War Inc. and watched Game of Thrones.

If you are up for a good laugh, check this out (SFW, but you may not be able to control the giggling fits).
