So glad my family doesn't use the local chevron gas station. About 5 vehicles that I know of completely broke down shortly after filling up there the other day, and dozens of other people reported engine troubles. Turns out 'surface' water somehow got into the gas at the pumps. D:

I hope for all the unfortunate people whose vehicles suffered damage as a result are able to get compensated by Chevron.


Unrelated, I got to make an impromptu trip out of town tomorrow for tech repair. My computer is making buzzing noises when I try to play any large video games. I think my hard drive might be failing. Or it's coil whine from the cpu. Either one isn't good. :sweat:

And in case you peeps don't check the Site News section for announcements, might be a good idea to start doing so, since, well, all the important announcements are there. XD

Well, I wish it had been the hard drive or cpu. The power supply is failing. I need to buy a new pc. T_T

Power supply sounds way easier to replace than a cpu :orly:

Typically yes, but any new power supply would be incompatible with the other parts due to the age of my pc (11 years).

That's surprising to me! Did the connections change, or is it a physical size issue, or something else? Also you probably can still obtain older power supply designs? Like perhaps not 11 years old, but maybe from the last 3-4 years?

Don't know. I'll have to look. I unfortunately don't know all that much about computer parts. I only know this is the second tech in the past year that has told me my computer is becoming/now is 'an expensive paperweight.' :sweat:


EDIT Hmm...I may be in luck. Someone on my FB mentioned a local guy. He said anything is replaceable, he wants to look at it to confirm it's the power supply. Won't have an opening until the weekend though.
He's pricy, but if he can fix it instead of me having to buy a new one, it saves me a huge bundle. Fingers crossed!
