Just a very quick update to the post about blowing up my pc. It wasn’t the video card. It wasn’t the CPU. It wasn’t the motherboard!
IT WAS THE POWER SUPPLY!!!!!
But the news gets even better – the whole pc is still under warranty, so I only had to spend $30 on an extra case fan [to pre-empt the forecast 41 C on Sunday]. 😀
I’m just about to dismantle the old pc and re-instate the new, improved one – a job I normally hate because it involves crawling under my desk and messing around on my hands and knees with a torch clutched between my teeth – so I’ll be off-line for a while, but for once I am happy, happy, HAPPY!
