Day 110: The Autopsy
My computer died recently. It has been making funny noises for the past couple of months and recently, I smelled burning plastic coming from inside. Something told me that wasn't good. Finally, it shut down and stopped responding to the power button. Fortunately, I've been backing up my files almost every night since the first sign of distress. Before I put the old computer in its final resting place, I thought I would have a peak inside and salvage what I can. The autopsy identified a melted plastic fan on the graphics board. I guess I could have replaced the graphics card and squeezed a few more miles out of it, but I decided to let this guy rest in peace. He served me well.
