Countdown to NOPI and car PC goes up in smoke
Literally - My opus sparked and began smoking for no apparent reason. The VIA EPIA is also toast. Funeral services were held today at noon.
Kris sounded shocked on the phone, but immeadiately agreed to get a new one over to me. (Im paying for next day AIR)
Monarch Computers is local to me, and altought Im fairly certin the jolt came through the PSU (but possible just passed along by it) I dono... but monarch agreed to RMA the board. (thank god) They dont have it in stock at the moment. The expect it some time tomorrow maybe friday.
So: I should have a new Opus Thursday. A new motherboard thursday or friday, and I think the hard drive is probably toast as well. (damn ! I had good movies on that thing)
My amp comes in on friday. (although I have no tracking info on it yet)
I think I need new back tires and an oil change too...
Thursday and friday to install and reload all my apps.
alright enough whineing -
I will post more if/when I find out what the hell ate my opus.
