So at about 15:00, betelgeuse, my workstation crashed. I took it down to plug in a faster hard drive to help solve its unbearable slowness, and I discovered a few leaky capacitors on the motherboard. Since it hadn’t seemed to hurt it before I took it apart, I figured it’d still work when I started it up. Wrongo.

Thankfully, my dad had a very nice spare motherboard and case around, so I replaced the hideous case and various other parts, and by 19:00, I had a working machine again. I left it moving files to the new drive as I walked out of the office.

Such a lovely way to spend the day instead of working. It was enjoyable, but at 19:00, I was getting to where I started nine hours earlier.
