Going offline for a while

Post by Guessmyname » 21 Nov 2008, 17:10

My wireless on my main computer seems to have bust. Until it's fixed, I'm offline. So I guess you guys won't be seeing me again until you see me again! Whenever that is...

Be back soon (hopefully)

...that took less time than I thought it would.

My expectations: hardware buggered, would have to replace (taking a few days with delivery and all that palava)
Actual happenings: we wiggled it a bit.

Is this how all mechanical problems can be fixed?

I used to kick the little TV in my room to switch channels.
Until it exploded.

Apply a large baton or stick to the underside and right side (from the point of view of the mobo) of the computer with generous force.

Either it will still be broken or it wont be broken, so you have NOTHING to lose.
