    Brains.....

    I think I've worked out my next game but the earliest I could start it is next week since I'll be busy this coming weekend.

    I am currently lacking a computer.
    I am also entirely depressed over this fact.

    The good thing about my previous Dell laptop was the service deal. They would come to my house and fix it while I was waiting.
    The bad thing about my previous Dell laptop was just about everything else. The HW royally sucked; "what do you mean you want to use the GPU and CPU at the same time? No of course we'll clock down your CPU to 800 MHz if you do that!".

    The good thing about my new MSI laptop is the HW. It is extremely good. No problems so far.
    ... well, until there was a problem, of course. The CPU fan isn't supposed to make that noise, and definitively not in a volume that makes my neighbours complain.
    Now it's in repairs, and I might get it back in 6 weeks. If I'm lucky.
    Considering I'd owned it for less than 5 months, I'm not terribly impressed.

    Any suggestions to what to do while not on a computer?
    I'm currently spending week days at work, but the weekends are killing me.

    Well if you dont have a computer how do we give you suggestions!? J/K we all know work is like 12% mmo-champ at minimum... >.>

    This is why I always keep a few solo-capable new board games around. If I cant go out somewhere or meet up with friends i break out a Mage Knight, or Legendary, or even Robinson Crusoe or Forbidden Island. They play like half puzzles half really slow video games.

    I have been having fun building RPG mini figs for my D&D sessions.
    It's fairly simple paper cutouts printed on my printer, and glued to cardboard and given a glossy tape cover.
    Kinda proud of them, honestly. The tiles too, simple as they are.



    Of course, without a PC I can no longer operate the printer, which makes that hobby closed off too.

    CPU fans aren't that expensive. Unless there was additional damage done to other components (especially the CPU), it would have probably cost less just to replace it yourself, without the hassle of waiting 6 weeks. Granted, I don't know if you have any proficiency with computer hardware or building computers. It can potentially be a scary thing to do if you've never built a PC yourself. But since you've already sent it out, that's not really an option anymore.

    Perhaps the warranty would have been voided if you did it yourself? I hadn't considered that. Either way, 6 weeks is a rough deal. =/

    It's unfortunately not the cost. Laptop fans are highly customized pieces of plastic. (see two in the first seconds on this video, f.ex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lxvmay2tn0).
    You need to order them from the factory. And unless you're a licensed repair service provider (tm) you're simply not getting them. Just like Apple phone repairs, it's a business world made for keeping monopolies, not making life easy for customers.

    In Norway, that one repair shop is a company near Oslo. The store I bought the laptop from would have fixed the simple stuff, and are more than qualified to replace a fan or two - but they just can't get their hand on the parts needed. I could (would!) have done it myself as well, but similarly cannot get my hands on spare parts either. So the store I bought it from have to send the laptop to the certified Oslo company, who will shelve the laptop, and in 2.5 weeks time will get around to look at it. And then find that it indeed has a broken fan. Where upon they will order one. The part will be shipped, via shipping container through the Scott Amundsen base in Antartica, and may eventually reach the shop in Oslo. At which point they'll fix it quickly enough. They may even give me the full service by completely wiping my hard drive just to be nice.

    As I said earlier, I miss Dell. Their support was amazing. I just wish they'd make decent computers too.

    Anyway, if you start seeing a sharp increase in cannibalism incidents happening in Trondheim, that's just me getting a new temp hobby.

    Desktops for the win. Screw laptops with irreplaceable components.

    I've a desktop and a laptop. When I go out to friends and stay the night there, I usually bring my laptop with me then, for movies, and to game together for a while

    I'm in the same boat...

    I sent a message explaining how I couldn't make use of the account restoration for that reason only to get a link to...the account restoration.

    I'll continue to check in from time to time and sign up to games but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't lost a lot of my interest in this site. I'll stick around for you guys and the FFXIV crowd, though!

    You guys losing your accounts make me feel like a pack rat. I still have access to email addresses I had from high school.

    I approve of this name. Perhaps after you lose this and another account, you can become 2Cruel4u?
