She's Dead Jim

It turns out playing World of Warcraft really puts a strain on your computer... Over this past year my crappy DELL machine has had three seperate hardware failures.

Yesterday - was the final straw. The core CPU died. (oh by the way, I have fallen off the Wagon and I been playing WoW for the past two weeks).
Ladygoat and I hope to be able to update this website- but we can't access our many tasty photos right now.

(never buy a Dell- its like going to Walmart)

  1. Yeah, that sounds like Dell to me.

  2. Dude - you got screwed by a Dell.

    You need to build your own bad-assed gaming box. It's cheaper and you get an awsome computer out of the deal...

  3. In the old days, I enjoyed putting together my own computer. I don't have the time to do that anymore - plus once your family finds out you can put together computers, you become the family tech. support. Thats unfun :)

  4. not if you tell them they have to pay you a fee...my rates start at $30/hr plus the cost of the parts. If they take me up on it great..if not...well...

    I stopped being nice when it comes to my "geek powers" long ago!

  5. Sigh, my wife has gone in to Second Life and hasn't come out in a month or two. Her old Dell wasn't up to the job (still works fine, still hate Dell anyway) so I bought her a new rig from a local shop. I'm with you, tired of building machines. Did hardware for 24 years and now let someone else deal with it. I don't have the time or inclination to even look inside anymore. My local shop will repair any problem with their machine that day for nothing. That's good enough for me.
