Three strikes you're out!

So here I am, back again and hopefully the computer all sorted out. Well maybe one or two little things yet to adjust est. If your wondering why the long silence? Well this is why. My computer a few weeks ago crapped out for the last time. Well I could have yet wasted more time and temporally had my computer patched up only for it to fail weeks later. Nope! It was time to put the thing out of its misery. But the most frustrating thing was knowing that the darn thing was only 5 years old. 5 years old? I only hope that this is not a current trend for modern lap tops. Since that would really suck if I had to yet again fork out cash of which I can't afford to feed to the hungry companies. I really, really hope that these things don't have some kind of expiration date or planned obsolesces built in or something.
BTW the problem was the mother board was well a little part of it fried. So slowly like Hal from the movie, it was going.

Anyways PC Outfitters helped me get a new replacement and hopefully a good one. I think its good and at a great deal too. I was able to resell some of the old parts from the old computer to get a bit of a discount too. Always nice. Even got a free data transfer from my old computer too. So here I am getting more and more acquainted with Windows8. So far so good.
