Well, it's a dead horse now...

Three times.

The third time.
The third fucking time. (u c wut i did thar?)

Allow me to put up a little comparisation;

200$ used IBM computer with a 40GB HDD - Bought it in '05, never, not once has it broken down.
1200$ brand new computer, 400GB HDD, Intel Quad-Core Q6600 2.4Ghz, Nvidia 8800GT, etc - Bought it five months ago, died three times thus far.

First two times, it was XP crashing. This time, I'm told to send it back, cause for as far as it goes; The guy who put all parts together, thinks that the Quad-Core's screwed. Now I call it a load of crap - But who can say no to free repairs? Warranties rawk.

But in the end, when you think about it. I paid big time for the 'pinnacle of modern technology', and it's broken down more often than a computer thats worth one-tenth of the thing. The two blue screen of death errors it gave, said two things that repair-dude call "Worth worrying about". SESSION3_INITIALIZATION_FAILED and UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME. Hell, the fact that the word 'Mount' is in there already scares the hell out of me.

Programmer must've been watching a National Geographic show or something while he wrote up the code...

Anyway, seeing as the one computer that didn't take half an hour to start up, the one where I'd be able to games on, the one with ALL my files, is sincerely fucked - I won't be getting on the thing that often until the thing is fixed. So, no podcast sessions for me, no gaming, no Steam, no X-Fire, no World of Warcraft(leveling the hell up, found out that you need to have a Lvl 55 character in order to actually play that expansion pack they're talking about), less on both Gamespot and Giantbomb.

So, incase anyone's bitching about the fact that everyone's commenting here, and I do jack in return. First of all, can you blame me? Thanks to GiantBomb, I barely feel like roaming the site. Hell, I don't even go beyond the blogs overhere. I comment here and there.

Blogging and paying attention to most blog's been trampled, spit on and killed between the rivalry of GameSpot and Giantbomb. Atleast for me. Hell, I'll appologize for the fact that while knowing it's the sort of "I comment on yours, you return the favor", I haven't been doing anything in return.

Oh, and -Tish-. Shut the hell up, would'ya? You're as mature as a newborn. That blog about everyone moving the hell out to Giantbomb. Hmphh, you sank lower than the chain-blog sequence on Gamespot about Giantbomb. Grow the fuck up, dude. Popularity doesn't mean that your opinion is superior above others. If you're saying that we're immature for saying "Fuck GameSpot, Giantbomb and it's crew are better", then first you deny the sad truth, and second by acting like an ass, you don't gain much credibility. Let alone that by trying to make a opinion sound like a fact, you sank lower than most mafioso's in the Hudson River.

Anyway, yeah. Computer is screwed, I'm quite the prick for not commenting back which I'll make up for and -Tish-, I had a good time bashing you. Bring on the response.

I'll be back fully in a week or so. If that same bastard who installed Vista, can pull it off within a week.

PC gaming is a bitch. I am sorry you have to pay so much just to fix your computer. If that sort of crap happened to me, I'd never have another PC ever again just by the lack of money.

Good luck fixing up the PC. If the ass hole that gave you Vista doesn't fix it, punch him in the face.

Here, here. I have computer problems up the butt too. My relatively brand new but still top of the line has broke down on me more times than I'd like to count, and still isn't functioning. Pisses me off.

I think you need to go beat something or somebody up. Work out the frustration. I hope everything gets fixed up soon.
