The Illuminati -- probably helped with alien technology -- are apparently blocking my computer from viewing of this video.

Speaking of computers, here is my brief and marginally interesting story of buying a desktop computer:
  • As my previous desktop is about a step and a half up from punch cards, I decided to purchase a new one, aided greatly by receiving Diablo 3 from my wife for my birthday. "You see, dear, that new game you gave me just won't work on our old system. Buy a new computer? Well, okay!" I am so smart, S-M-R-T!
  • After doing my homework on what was available and for what price, I found myself in Future Shop. They had a pretty decent system with 16 GB of RAM, a 2-TB hard disk and Intel Core i5. That's about 10 billion times better than what I previously had. Okay, 8.5 billion.
  • The sales guy, in showing me the system, asks if I am in a hurry to buy. I'm not. He mentions that they have a big sale coming up in 2 weeks. It's a VIP sale (whee!), by appointment only, and it's like Boxing Day type of deals. Great, I think, I'm okay with the price they listed in general, so knocking off some cash sounds great, even if it turns out to be mediocre. Sign me up.
  • 2 weeks go by and Mrs. Parent comes with me to the store. We locate "our" sales guy and we all find the computer in which I am interested. It's not on sale. As a matter of fact, none of the desktops are on sale, save the priciest: for the $999 system, they are knocking off $50. Woah! Back up the truck and fill it with desktops!! Furthermore, none of the monitors (sold separately, you know!) are on sale. I don't exactly feel very VIP. But we're there and, like I said, the original price was okay.
  • I ask sales guy about a recommendation a friend of mine (works for SAP) made: install a secondary SSD hard drive and just put the OS on it. Sales guy checks with technician and gets the thumbs up. We pick out a drive, he gives it all to the technician and Mr. Generosity says that they will not charge me for the extra Windows license. I'm feeling light-headed at the savings at this point. The tricked-out desktop will be ready in 1-2 days.
  • I call the store 3 days later, not having heard anything. Of course, it's ready. I go to the store and am presented a box. "Thank you for the box," I say. "Please now take the computer out of the box and show me it works." Technician hooks the computer up to a monitor -- I am permitted to enter the Tech Workshop Area; bucket list complete! -- and lo and behold, only 1 hard disk appears on screen. "Lucky we checked," says one technician to the other. Must control fist of death.
  • Technician configures the missing 2-TB disk as it should be. I leave the store.
  • Computer is indeed working great at home. Fast, fast, fast. Mr. and Mrs. Parent and both little Parents are pleased.
  • Today I peruse the Future Shop circular. Guess what computer is listed as $80 off? Mrs. Parent and I go back to the store and ask for this special to be applied to our purchase. To their credit (and, literally, to ours), they immediately comply and we come out with $120 knocked off our bill, as the special was inexplicably better in their system than what was listed in the circular. Justice!

That sounds like more hassle than building your own PC!

Have fun with Diablo 3. I haven't played in a couple weeks, but I enjoy punching things to death as a monk.

While I know more about computers than the "coffee mug holder" comment here, trying to build my own would probably be disastrous.

Interesting class choice. Why the Monk? Besides punching things, that is.

I've played through as barbarian and wizard, and I've just found the monk to be the most interesting. He deals a decent amount of damage and can heal himself.

Wizard is pretty fun too; "Disintegrate" is a nice death ray.

I hear tell they didn't release this game with PvP built in, but was scheduled to be released in a b.net update. This happen yet?

Ahhh Diablo, you cruel addictive ***** of a franchise... I still play D2LoD every once in a while.

So, my computer monitor (reaching 4 years old in December) yesterday started to go all black on me for no apparent reason. It wasn't off, and if I looked real hard and close I could still barley see the screen and webpage I was on, but barely. If I turned my monitor off and back on, the screen would light up again but only for a second or two. If I left my monitor off for a little while, the screen would work for maybe ten or so minutes, and would once again shut off.

Anyone of you computer tech-guys know if this is a wire problem, or is my monitor just done?? Turning the brightness all the way down has seemingly given me more time, but it hasn't fixed the problem completely.

Thanks
