Two days ago, after another particularly taxing day at work, I say down at my gaming system, pushed the power button, and listened to fans spin up but no pretty lights. And certainly no games. Poor system had a bad motherboard.
The net result is I'm in the finishing stages of putting a new gaming rig together and getting everything reinstalled. Fortunately due to a combination of Steam sand and good backups of my original game software this hasn't been a horrible task. It has been talking awhile though. Regular posting should resume this weekend.
