you can't dance to it

I've learned that not one but three rock/metal bands from my old stomping grounds (that being Northeastern Connecticut) are back together again.

Kitsch rockers? Maybe. Depends on your point of view.

video card fan dies (just about)

A noise starting coming out of my computer case. After inspection I found it was the video card fan.

Something I really can't stand is that you can't replace video card fans - and mine is one of those kind. Solution? Unplug the fan and ta-da, noise is gone. Is this stupid? Yes. However my last video card had the exact same problem and did the same thing. It never burnt up. Hopefully this one won't.

note to boss

I gotta say my boss is a good egg due to the fact I totally messed with one of his videos by "cheesing" it out - and he actually thought it was cool.

Cheese, when applied the right way, works. 😀

spock found

Picked up at f.y.e. in the mall, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Bought it used for 9 bucks. Good find in my opinion. Yes, I like 'Trek movies. So there. 😛
