Computer repair hell was the theme of this weekend.

Friday
I don't remember Friday. It feels so distant.

Saturday
1:30 Leave for suburbia. Oops. The train arrives at 1:30. Missed the train.
2:00 Leave for the train for real this time.
2:15 Arrive at Melrose Park. There is a strange man from Verizon. We talk about birds, the weather, and strikes. Unbeknownst to me, there are many hawks in our area.
2:35 Train arrives. Yay! Everyone on the train is talking, which seems peculiar.
2:45 There's a 20 minute overlay at Market East? What?
3:05 Train arrives. Yay!
3:20 No more train. Yay!
3:50 Off to Best Buy to buy everything.
4:30 Best Buy has nothing we need, but recomend another local shop.
4:45 Downpour!
5:35 The shop has everything we need, at exagerated prices, with the exception of the UPS.
5:50 The people at Home Depot never heard of a UPS.
6:15 Best Buy does have a UPS, but their sales people are idiots. When asked for clarification on an issue, they read the box to me.
6:20 A decision is made. Back to home.
7:00 Dinner with the 'rents.
7:30 Still dinner with the 'rents.
8:15 Train to Fern Rock. Only 10 minute overlay this time!
8:45 The march from Fern Rock to Home.
9:15 Home!
9:45 The effort to free the Duron from the broken motherboard has begun.
10:45 That's it. I'm getting a knife.
11:00 The effort to free the Duron from the broken motherboard has commenced.
11:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner.

Sunday
12:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Why won't it turn on?
1:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Why won't it beep?
2:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Why won't it beep?
3:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Why won't it beep?
4:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Why won't it beep?
5:01 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Oh. Diagnostic tools came with the motherboard.
5:15 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Oh. We killed the Duron in our efforts to free it. Or was it buggered beforehand?
5:45 We should sleep.
6:15 Sleep.
8:30 What time is it?
8:35 Ow! My foot!
10:00 Train time!
10:35 Train arrives. Yay! A bunch of old ladies are standing around complaining? Odd.
11:10 Stupid overlay...
11:30 Train arrives. Yay!
11:45 No more train. Yay!
12:30 The effort to free the Athlon from the motherboard has begun.
1:00 Grrr.. where did I put that knife? No... must resist.
1:30 The effort to free the Athlon from the mother has commenced.
2:20 Train arrives. Yay!
2:45 Overlay. Blah blah blah.
3:00 Train arrives. Yay!
3:15 What? This train doesn't stop at Melrose Park? Why not?
3:17 So this is Jenkin Town....
3:30 Train arrives. Yay!
3:40 Melrose Park!
3:55 Home!
4:00 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. And re-freeing the broken Duron.
5:00 Playing with wires, cables, and other Tom Foolery in a static-free manner. Why won't it boot? Oh, right. The drives are switched.
6:00 Everything works?
6:15 Almost everything.
6:30 Pass out on couch.
10:30 What time is it?
