Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Scrap computer

Published: Thursday 2007-03-01.

Now I have changed almost everything in the computer that has shown symptoms of being broken, video cards, hard disks and memory, but it is still acting up. Almost the only things left to change are power supply and fans, but it feels like it is time to say stop, declar the four and a half year old computer as scrap and start thinking about getting a new one.

My trusty old printer, which I have on an “extended loan” from my father ever since I moved out, seems also be ripe for exchanging for a new one. Not that it in any way is broken, it is just that Clas Ohlson, where I always have bought replacement ink cartridges, has stopped selling them. It was just a question of time when that would happen, the market for new ink for a printer from 1994 is perhaps not as large as it once was.

Av vad jag lärt mig, är nätaggregat inte att bortse ifrån när datorer beter sig konstigt. Ojämn eller dålig strömförsörjning kan nog ge alla möjliga symptom, så det kanske visar sig att med ett nytt (eller i alla fall bättre certifierat) nätaggregat skulle alla de gamla komponenterna ha fortsatt att fungera tillfredställande.

Eller så är det något vajsing i ditt operativsystem?

Det enda som är kvar att misstänka är fläktar och nätaggregat. Men nu orkar jag inte bråka med den längre, utan det blir att beställa en ny leksak^H^H^H^H^H^H^H dator.

Konstigt sammanträffande. Min dator (4 år och 4 månader) gav upp i torsdags. Konstaterade ganska snabbt att jag inte skulle fixa det utan beställde en ny samma dag som kom i fredags. Så nu är snart ordningen återställd.
