RIP Ol' PC

Ugh, what a day! Earlier, I was sitting at my desktop, and suddenly the tower made a loud "pop", then stopped working. Wouldn't power on. Deader than a doornail. Did some online research using the old laptop, determined the power supply was a goner.

As old as the desktop was (around 7 years old), I figured it would be better to just splurge on a new one, rather than try to replace the power supply. So, I go to Best Buy, find one with decent specs, and bring it home.

I start setting it up, then suddenly realize I can't hook my current monitor to the thing! The new tower ONLY has "HDMI Out". No "HDMI In" on that monitor.

Soooo, I hop back in the truck. Decided I wasn't going to drive all the way BACK over to Best Buy to look for a new monitor. I go to the nearest Office Depot instead. Luckily, they had a nice 27" monitor on sale for just $149. I buy that one and bring it home.

I have spent most of the day installing updates, re-installing the programs I use the most, and transferring files to the new PC. Just finished about half an hour ago.
