Damn ...

My computer's dead.

Obviously, not the one that I'm currently typing on, but my "main" computer at home is kaput.

It was working at 2am on Tuesday morning, but was non-responsive (it was making its usual noises but nothing was showing up on the monitor) at 7am.

The office sent me home with a flat-screen monitor, but it, too, was getting no signal. So, I packed up my machine and brought it and the monitor back up to the office (on the subway, no less) today, as the Tech Guy said he'd take a look at it. Unfortunately, taking a look at it eventually pointed to the fact that something on the motherboard was toasted.

I am not happy. We have one lesser-used system at home that I can probably snag, but I really want "MY" system back, and this is going to mean a whole lotta re-installing and crap, and I really don't have the time nor the energy for that at the moment. I wish I had money to buy a new system, but after digging into debt to go to Florence for work, that's not going to happen.

Sucks to be me, I guess.
