I got my desk arranged in the living room and set my main system up, but when I plug it in the power supply makes a weird high pitched, two-tone whine and won’t turn on. I figure ESD killed it, so I ordered a new PSU from Newegg. It’s a 500 W Antec SmartPower 2.0. Much higher quality than the PSU that came with my case (a 350 W Sunshine or Deer brand supply). 3-day shipping was actually the cheapest option at $6.99, so I got that.

Have you seen Pirate Baby’s Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006 video? It’s kinda big (like 113 MB), but pretty cool. My favorite bit is when Walter from The Big Lebowski shows up for the “World of Pain” combo.

BTW, I didn’t mention this in the last post, but I’ll definitely be competing in next year’s IMBC. Of course, I’m going to try to get some of the rules changed and clarified before then… Like the “media content” bit — a bogus requirement, IMHO. The main reason the rules were so loose this year was because no one really wanted to work on them before the competition and I assumed things would be handled pretty informally. Personally, I don’t really care if someone makes their post a minute past midnight, but obviously due to some peoples’ tenacity a boundary has to be set somewhere.

Again, my battery’s dying, so I gotta go. Things to do tomorrow: Notify management that the bathroom outlets don’t work, request a new driver’s license with an updated home address, buy a hook to hang the ceiling lamp higher (so I stop braining myself on its edges), and get the last carload of stuff out of my old apartment.

    hit the reset on the GIF on the outlet in the bathroom sometimes that’s all it is to get the whole circuit turned on.
