Lightning sucks.

Post  theRizzler on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:18 am

We had a nice little storm a few nights ago, and a nearby transformer was struck with lightning. My surge protectors failed, and my PC was fried. I cracked it open to find all connections from my power supply burned out, with many components suffering the same fate as their electrical benefactor.

Maybe this is the big guy in the sky's way of telling me to buy a new PC.

I'll be down for a little while.

Definitely man. The main thing that bothers me is that I've been working a lot on renovations to the server, and I've lost ALL of it (unless my hard drive survived the surge). I'll have to start from scratch when I get my new pc. And I lost all of my backups from every sof2 server I've ever been a sysop from, and so many other things that I can never replace. But, there is still a small chance that my hard drives weren't fried.

And considering that I'm low on cash right now, it may be a while before I can get up and running again (I'm using my sister's laptop right now).

Needless to say, I won't be able to fill the position of Scrim Captn' until my PC is running again.

This couldn't have come at a worse time, but shit happens. And I'm sure you guys can manage without me. But if I come back to see that members are leaving, or you're recruiting like certain clans have been (I won't mention any names, but you know who I'm talking about), I will be seriously pissed.

So daddy will be gone for a while. You're all the men of the house now, so do me proud!

Feel your pain there Rizz, my daughters PC suffered the same fate last week, probably the same damned line of storms too. Evil or Very Mad

Rizz did you get it figured out?
I have another older PC that has the same size power supply as my daughters. Tommorow I plan on replacing it in her PC and see if it works. Sucks that you cant be online, but if you do end up getting a new rig, get a damned good one, one that will be good for at least 6 months, until the newest shit comes out!
