    The idea was learning from history, not repeating it Even though then it wouldn't have happened therefore not becoming history, but you get the idea.

    Half the country knew before 2016 that it was going to be a complete clusterfuck. We just didn't know how he would make it happen.

    Lesson learned: our way of life will end due to a narcissistic psychopath who is popular with the dumbest 30% and cowardly right wing politicians.

    I have no respect for any company that is too cheap to pay off the local federales.

    Glad to hear that and glad it was "just" the power supply. Perhaps you'll find surge protectors to be a worthy investment after this?
    Hmm... yeah.... or else a inexpensive UPS may be the ticket... UPC UPS, 1500VA UPS Battery Backup perhaps.

    (Sez one of a lightning capital states user... I learned. Okay... back to lurking.)

    I got the computer sitting behind an APC UPS that should have protected it from any power surge. All the other equipment that's hooked up to it (Monitor, etc) still work. Not sure what happened here...?

    Other brands have perks.

    Dell has quirks.

    Either the UPS is very good and just saved you from a major frying with minimal damage, or it sucks and you also had luck on the side.

    Dell have always been proprietary as far back as I can remember. Pretty sure that's where Apple learnt it from.
    Time to build your own rig Caballero.

    Meaning get your ass back in the game, my mouse finger is getting tired.

    I used to build my own systems, but when the last one died on me (don't even remember what happened) I had an immediate replacement need and no time to scope out specs. So off to Costco I went, and in all fairness the system is doing what it needs to be doing (I don't play these fancy modern games anymore, so I am not too fussed about all the latest graphic cards and overclocking and whatnot). The price was right at the time.

    Best case scenario -- I'll be back in NZB-posting mode in about 48 hours.

    And thanks again for your support.
