I'm looking at it, but I only have half an hour before I have to leave and I have some stuff to deal with so I'll probably check it in the afternoon.

I have to send my laptop back for repairs yet again. The motherboard has been recalled and I'm getting a free replacement. Hopefully that will solve some of my overheating issues and make the Nether a bit less dangerous, or at least less likely to melt my video card and paralyze me with lag.

On the other hand, this will mean I can't play minecraft during the day for at least a week or two, although I should be able to borrow my father's laptop and play for a little bit most evenings. But his video card is even worse than my old one, so I'll be sticking to simple stuff like digging in the farm caves or mining on my other server.

You seem to have a never ending stream of problems with technology. Hope it's all good for you soon

It seems activity has dropped again around here. I have been busy with several extracurricular events that have been eating up my weekends for the past few weeks so I have not been on the server. I'm posting just to say that I am still here on the forums even though I have little time for the server.

Oh yes, we've definitely hit a slope. I can't tell how active the server is as I'm really busy myself lately but people are around on the forums, they're just not making any noise. Oh well, we always bounce back.

I ended up putting off sending in my laptop for repairs...but now I have no choice. The screen is dead. So that couple of weeks of no laptop starts now.

Everything has seemed to have died... I am to blame as much as anyone else, as I've been really busy and barely even have a chance to get out the laptop, let alone actually play minecraft. I'll try to jump on the forums more regularly though. Hopefully I can get back into things soon, along with everyone else Wink

I am seriously thinking of changing my online handle to "Techbane, Slayer of Laptops".

My brand-new laptop came with a 320gb hard drive, which was a bit smaller than the 500gb one on my previous laptop. Well, since there was nothing wrong with the old hard drive (the old laptop having died due to motherboard and LCD screen issues), I had it reformatted and installed in the new laptop, with that machine's original 320gb drive moved to a swappable drive caddy as a backup media drive.

The 500gb drive has failed, and at the same time, the powerful-but-hot-running video chip on the new laptop decided to desolder itself. I've managed to re-install the 320gb drive, but with the video chip dead, I'm unable at present to play minecraft on it.

Yet another new laptop has been ordered, and will be free thanks to the generous warranty terms of my supplier, but it will be a couple of weeks before it gets here, since the supplier had to order it from HIS supplier and so forth.

Good news, sort of...turns out, it was apparently just the hard drive that died, and it was sending corrupted data to the video card. The video card is apparently fine, so I got minecraft working again. And I don't have to send this laptop back for scrap (due mainly to the bad drive, and the replacement being too small for my needs) until the replacement laptop arrives in a couple of weeks, so there will be no interruption in my mining and crafting after all.

Smile As for me however, I don't get much time on this computer because It's the family one (multiple accounts). But I'll try get on if I can.

Turns out there WAS a disruption, as that laptop died as well. But I've got YET ANOTHER new laptop now, so hopefully this one won't be a lemon. Sigh.

What have you been doing to the bloody things? Trying to get your money's worth from the company?

Anyway, I'll be away this weekend. I'm on a climbing trip for the entire weekend where there will be no form of communication with the outside world. The same for the easter long weekend too. I'm around before that though

That sounds like a great setup for a horror movie Neutral

At least he'd probably be missed by monday, so perhaps he could save all his limbs should it come to that.

Wash thy mouth out with soap. I had to use a mac for some classes in college, hated them with the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns. Plus, I'm unemployed and impoverished, so dirt-cheap PC notebooks are all I can afford anyways, not overpriced pretty-box macs.

Too true, too damn true indeed. Everything is upside down and back to front. If I got time to get used to one I could deal with it. But being aquainted with windows 7 for such a long time it doesn't feel right to go back.

Apple is the bane of technology! Overpriced, they make it look pretty to hide the lack of functionality... but are we really going to have this argument here? :p Sorry, I've been more busy than expected... but no horror movie style things... just a massive storm that destroyed half the tents
