I went to the Coke Center in Atlanta once, it was fantastic
Yay, thunderstorm! Shame about my houses electricity tripping every 5 minutes.
My neighborhood is always the one with power outages
If a cloud even sneezes, I guarantee that the lights will at least flicker
I'm glad I bought that surge protector, our circuit breaker still takes fuse wire, the house was built in the bloody 1940's.
Well we're the first owners of this house, was built in 2000.
My friend who lives not even a minute drive away from me always says his house is fine whenever I have an outage, so it's really weird.
maybe you have shitty wiring
The whole neighborhood and the apartments across the street go out too so if the wiring is shitty then the electrical company has a lot to answer for
Well that was a lovely little panic.
After waking up my computer, I was greeted with a frozen screen. Power-cycled it, and it just would not turn back on. Everything would spin up, *especially* the GPU fan, but it wouldn't spin back down.
Tried power-cycling it several more times, tried letting it sit for a bit, all the usual stuff.
After checking Google on my phone, I gave it one last try. It sat there forever, fans just squealing away, before finally hitting the EFI chime. Normally it takes like one second - it must've taken like ten this time.
Most likely culprit would be the video card, right? That fan was the one that was really spinning, and it's been having issues for a while now, randomly deciding to not turn on after waking the computer.
Everything seems to be working fine, now, but I now suspect my GPU is likely to fail soon. Which I can deal with - I really ought to have upgraded it already. But I was definitely panicking a little bit there.
Have you ever had Italian Coke?
on the coke thing: i have a coke zero and a regular coke sitting right here
i'm gonna do a taste test
edit: the taste of the coke zero is definitely milder but it's not bad
It's all placebo
the coke zero has more cancer to dilute the taste
It's always fun when booting after installing updates Windows (7) hangs on on the Preparing to configure Windows. Do not turn off your computer. screen.
I've never even seen a bottle of dr pepper but any coke drink >>> any pepsi drink
