It finally looked like things were on the up.
Earlier this week I traded a old kit of mine in exchange for a old Revell HO scale Dutch farm that goes for ridiculous money on Ebay.de.
Then, today at Figz, was gifted (or was paid for by friends) the following kits:
I brought my toolbox so was happily converting stuff and making new things.
But.....when I got home and wanted to turn on the PC to show all this, all I got was the loud spinning of the GPU fan and not much else. Contacted a FB help group and found a local who was willing to go oever it, even at this late hour, on a sunday. Verdict?
CPU overheated and fried itself (cooling paste was rock solid, fan was completely clogged with dust) and dragging my poor Motherboard with it. Since I can't live without my PC (yes, I'm addicted, thank you) I bought a second hand one off the shelf (bye bye money) for a few hundred and I'm updating it right now (luckily it came with a legal Windows 7 like I had, sadly it is missing the Office package that is still stored on my old harddisk (that survived).
Anyone know how to switch that to the new Windows? I have no idea where my original CD's are :(
Ack, when it rains., it pours......
