April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

A gorgeous photo sent by Ryan from Australia. They had 'surfing' as one of their orientation events. Sick! As for China Synergy, I have a feeling that I wasn't admitted. One of my acquaintances on campus already received an email last week confirming his acceptance. Haven't received anything yet. =[.

Found out what was wrong with my computer! I was taking it apart today to send the motherboard back to Asus and uncovered the problem, check these photos out: 1 2 3. From the answers in this thread, it could have been that my CPU or peripherals were drawing too much power (highly unlikely) or that it was a bad connection on that one pin (likely). So now, I need to grab both a new power supply and a new motherboard. But I'll most likely just use my refurbished MSi K7T Pro2a board and the PCI IDE adapter that Rob will be sending me back. So now, which new power supply should I grab? The Antec 430W for $66, Raidmax 500w for $55 or the Leadman 400w for $21?

Update: Ordered the Raidmax 500w. Guess numbers do matter =D. Too bad it's being shipped from California. Guess my server will stay down during spring break.
