Don't open computers.

    Shittin' ya not, folks. :D

    So my computer "died" this week. I still don't really know what was the cause, but the hard drive, motha' board and all were okay. I think something happened to certain crucial files of the OS or something. (o_O)

    Anyway, I couldn't get the thing to boot up, and I tried every option out there. So eventually I came to the fucking horrible conclusion that I needed to buy a new hard drive, take out the old one, put it in an external case (to later access all of my files), and then install the new hard drive and re-install the OS. Bad idea. :D

    So I spent $300 on a hard drive, an external case, and a RAM upgrade (figured I might as well since I was going to have the thing open). I get this guide online on how to replace the hard drive, so I think I've got this thing in the bag... and then... it was just completely ridiculous! You would think that such an advanced piece of plastic and metal could be taken apart in any fashion other than cave man fashion... but you would be wrong. You're supposed to "pop" off the shell with a flathead screwdriver (!!?!?!?!!). Oh, bad news. I broke a chunk off of my computer, people. :D So to make a long story somewhat shorter, I wasted a bunch of cash, physically harmed/mamed my computer, and nearly had a heart attack, all to save the files on my hard drive... only to just give up and erase the hard drive minutes later. (o_O)

    So take these words to heart, guys: don't open up your computer, especially if it's an Apple notebook... because it's not fucking made for assholes to poke around in with screwdrivers. And I'll tell ya what, Apple doesn't tell their customers to seek help from certified professionals for nothing. :D Yes, I have learned my lesson.

    Oh shit.

    Yeah, I wouldn't ever fuck with my laptop. I used to change parts on my desktop just for kicks (might have brought it to its demise though :p)...

    But shit, and an Apple too... those things freak me out without having to digest them... damn Apples.
  4. You are so witty. :rolleyes:

    At this point in the sentence, I was expecting you to say that you get computer help in exchange for sexual favors. (o_O) Glad to see I was wrong. :D

    Mentos? What the hell would Mentos have done, other than freshen my breath and fill me up with a pseudo high that's just great? Huh?

    Man, now that's a thought. Mentos.

    Computers just suck too much, from time to time. I feel like hiking and getting my fishing license today. I've just been fishing in peoples' private areas, so far.
