So Brooke tried slapping a new drive in my Dell, and all was going fine for a while, she even asked me for a name. Going with the fact it was Ahnai ("Holy") before, I chose another TPNN word and named it "Enah," meaning "My child."
But, then she said it was starting to hang on reboots. After that was an email saying "I'm beginning to lose hope. It's *possible* that it's a simple heat problem. More likely it's that heat or something has damaged something. In which case a new system from ENU or elewhere is going to be cheaper than trying to fix it."
At which point it occurred to me that while they were trying to find out what was wrong with the computer, the one guy said something about the processor in regards to rapid heating and cooling. I wasn't really listening at the time, because he'd already said he didn't know what was wrong, so I figured he was just guessing.
*Sigh* And I was looking forward to Ahnai's rebirth. Poopsticks!
