Blue mood lighting

I got a new power supply. I had to buy a 350 Watt one from comp usa. It also glows blue. The good news is that it was 10 dollars cheaper than the price marked on the shelf and there was another 10 dollars rebate.

I was moving all my networking equipment to shelf to give me more deskspace. i reached behind my computer stack to move the network cables and felt a very hot computer case. everything is still running but I think the fan is dieing on the power supply. What does a 135 Watt atx power supply cost these days?

I think I have narrowed down why my printer is not reporting ink levels. The twist is that it works on my laptop. Either it is the version of Windows 2K I used to install it I have a couple different CDs for windows 2K, or it only works when installed on Windows 2K with SP2. My laptop is only at SP2.
I am trying installing SP3 over the top to see what happens. So far I have tried Windows 2k (don’t now which cd I installed from with SP3), Windows 2K CD1 with out any service packs, Windows 2K CD1 with SP3 and all security patches.
Then Windows 2K CD2 and SP2 which works.

Ok I did CD2 and SP3 then installed the driver and it worked?
So it is either CD1 or the install routine must very picky about when I plug in the printer

I seem to be surprising a lot of my friends that haven’t seen me for a long time. I now have long hair. Last time I had long hair was at university, I cut it short before i started interviewing for jobs.
I have more or less done my federal tax. I think my refund is going to get me the 12.1 inch G4 power book …… drool. I am not in a big rush to add computer number 7 to my house hold (8 if you count my tivo) So if you spot any specials on them let me know.

I had great fun biking home in the snow at midnight. I did really well till I was on the pavement out side my apartment. I guess I got caught between the grass and the concrete and went “weeeeeeee splat” and landed my arse on a pile of wet snow. I think my wheels are out of alignment since the gearing was all fucked up this morning. That will be on my list to look at on Sunday.
