I just received word (last night but called today to confirm,) that NewEgg.com will be shipping me my replacement parts for the dead motherboard and AMD chip I received. Good deal. I hopefully will have all my parts by the end of the week. Looking forward to it (for real - this who ordeal with defective parts has been ticking me off something fierce).
With some sadness - and maybe a little bit of regret, I have officially "closed" my business for the time being. I've wrote about it here before, but being that I was changing blog softwares almost weekly (due to one reason or another), my thoughts got "lost in the stack" so to speak, so... I figured I'd write about it again. It's good reading, anyway. At least for me. :-)
For the last year-and-a-half, I was running the biz full time. Technically, the biz was in operations for 5 years, but I gave it my first big push (as in tried to make a living off of it) 1.5 years ago. Sadly, I have to give it up for the time being because the bills needed to be paid - and a job opportunity came my way that I just couldn't pass up.
As a whole, being a biz owner was positive. Even with all the crap involved with being a biz owner, I would do it again in a heartbeat, provided I could make a good living doing it. (grin) That's the kicker.
A friend recommended that I try Advil Cold & Sinus so I picked up some today. Does it work? Yes it does. I won't claim it's a cure-all, but, my cold is much more tolerable now. I will definitely take one of these before I head out to work tommorrow.
