Hey all, just a quick update. I was working on some unrelated projects, and had a major computer hardware failure, so everything is on hold right now. I’ll update when I have a better idea of how things are looking.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE (June 4): Good news is I’m getting everything back in order and will have some stuff to post soon. Bad news is the hardware failure resulted in a corruption of most of my archive PNGs, which isn’t THAT big a loss, as the JPG versions are all still available on the intarwebs. Also lost most of the stuff I’ve downloaded over the past couple years, but all that means is that i don’t have to sort it, yay! I did not lose any unposted scans, so worry not in that regard.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATED UPDATE (July 4): I’ve been at AX on vacation since I posted my batch of stuff last week; just wanted to mention I’ll have a few good scans to post when I return. As I said, though, I’ve had some unexpected expenses over the past few months, so my C80 order will be smaller than I’d like. I will be getting some of the usual suspects for sure (Maidoll, Insert, etc.), but if you’d like to see more of what I normally scan, please donate!

Well, my Hardware is quite dying too(Upgrading this year, having a lot of chrashes since this year’s beginning).

Well, if the PC doesn’t work as it should, there are quite a lot of points to check and some quite obvious.

Miscolored Pixels: dead GPU-Fan(Got this twice when the Fan of 2 of my older Cards died), also results in a freezing Screen after some time.

Generally checking up every fan(especially CPU, Power-source, Graphics-Card), replacing a non-working part.

If nothing seems to work: check on every condensator(these tempt to pop, when dying, might even smell like fish[seen one guy, killing 2 of those at school, by soldering them incorrectly on a board]).

Also check on loose parts(every connector should be de-&reattached, same for other Hardware-Parts, like Graphics-Cards).

When trying to replace parts, try borrowing some from your friends(a malfunctioning power-source is quite common to cause mayor Problems, also: replacing it doesn’t require any OS-reinstallation).

The most-annoying part would be replacing an old CPU+Cooler+Mainboard+RAM-Combo, that always results in a complete reinstall of your OS.
