Hi ya All,
Just a quick word about what happened last Thursday night.
It was freaking hot in my living room again (34° C / 93° F). Although it was hot, I decided to work on my 2nd assignment of the Gothic Beauty Contest I entered with "Moon".
When I started my computer, things were still OK, after a while virus- and spyware programs started updating as usual, but I noticed this time, my CPU cooler-fan or maybe another cooler-fan, started going berserk !!
I ignored it, while I thought it was hot indeed.
When my virus-scanner started it's daily quick-scan, things started to go very, very wrong.
I smelled something, then there was smoke, then my screen went black and then I noticed my computer was on fire !! I quickly detached my external hard-drive & ran with hard-drive and all to my kitchen.
Put the hard-drive (with recent backup :D) somewhere safe in my kitchen and grabbed a big bowl and filled it with cold water. Ran back to my computer and put out the fire.
However the damage was already done.... :(
My computer, motherboard & internal hard-drives were all fried and fused !!
I , myself was OK though (physically), on the other hand I was totally devastated (mentally).
At this time I don't have enough (spare) money to buy a new computer, although I want to buy one as quickly as possible !! For now I can only use a computer when I visit my family or friends and use theirs (while I'm there), or when ever I can (if possible) when I'm at my work.
So my online access is very limited and my Simming has gone to nil, for the time being :(
I do not yet know when I will be back fully, but I will return !!
Upon my return, DO have fun & DO some Simming for me !
Groetjes, Cheers, Gruessen,
