Went to the gym this morning, like almost every morning, and shut down the PC. Yes, I know this is a Linux machine; they are made to run for years without ever shutting down but I am mostly what you would call a gud gurl and am totally about energy saving n shit. Anyway, I shut the machine down. And when I came back I switched it back on … NUFFINK! 😮
Then I remembered the power supply already acted up a while ago and my computer repair lady fixed it. She’s so handy with all electrical shit. Obviously my power supply didn’t wanna be saved and decided to die again … while I was away. 😦
So I called computer repair lady but she wasn’t picking up the phone. And since I’m a rather impatient little grrl and my PSU was dead anyway I decided on the spot to drive to the shopping mall and get a new one.
Fotunately the little store there had a semi-modular PSU in stock: Corsair CX650M. Good brand. 100 Watts less than my old one but more than enough to power my rig. Putting it in was, as all things computer, kinda LEGO for adults and after only a small handful of meltdowns I’m already blogging on my very fancy machine.
On the parking lot I noticed again how small Oubaas appears now, squatting on his big new tyres. Almost like a puppy dog. 😉
