Get TSSSF to Bronycon
One of my dearest friends, Pixel Prism, is trying to get her and her team from Horrible People Games over to Bronycon this year. The problem is that the cost to get to that convention is immense, so she needs help. If you have some time, just click on the link below and see how you can help! Every little bit counts.
One of the Family Cats Passed Away
The title says most of it. I had gotten home from a friend’s house Thursday and was checking to see what I missed during that day. Tai-Ling, our little kitten we found in a storm twenty years ago, passed away early Thursday morning. My brother and mother were there with her in the end, but I was completely out of the loop. I know they meant well, so I don’t blame them, but at the same time I now feel terrible on two fronts: that I wasn’t there to say goodbye and that we might have looked to do more for her health before she went. She was such a sweet kitten, an avid climber later in life, and a mother of nine babies over three litters, the last of the last still being in our family. How I wish I could have been there to hold and pet and kiss her one last time. I already miss her a bit, and I pray that I’ll see her again on the other side.
Ever get one of those days, or weeks, or (arbitrary period of time here) where you feel like you’re on a roll and doing everything you can, but no matter how many times you ask friends to do something they just seem to pass you over?
I’m having one of those weeks.
Argh (pt 2)
So after spending the night repeatedly trying to get the damn computer to start up (and currently being on my laptop), I believe the leading candidates are either an overheated CPU or a faulty power supply. Now, I was under the impression that when a CPU throttles itself it doesn’t kill the computer entirely. But…anyway. Only one way to properly diagnose the issue.
Falcon Northwest, I’m calling for you.
So I just got home an hour ago and I saw my computer was off. It started up but was intensely slow, then shut off, then had times of slow loading followed by shut off. One dusting later and a Startup Repair in progress as we speak, it seemingly works but something is now rattling in my case. WTF.
