My computer locked up last night. And then it started smelling bad. Rather than messing with it at the time, I drank a lot of beer. Nothing is visibly damaged (in the light I have now), but I'm going to go ahead and guess it's just the power source, and hope it didn't take anything else out with it.

I'm on my laptop now, which isn't set up for Java development, so I won't get 0.3.2 done before I leave tomorrow morning. I've been working hard on it and this is pretty disappointing. Hopefully I won't get my power source replaced only to find out I lost my hard drive. Anything else would be no big deal.

Edit: Whew! Dodged a bullet there. Replaced the power source. Apparantly at some point I spent the big bucks on an Enermax power source.. weird, I don't do things like that. Anyway, it's working great now and it's not as loud. Yay!

Another edit: I was able to get some more work done. File association in Windows was driving me crazy so I gave up on it until 0.3.3.

The cheapo lasted quite a while.. There was a big storm and the power kept flickering earlier yesterday, I think that probably weakend it. All is well now though. :)

I stick with Antec for PSUs.
I know how an el-cheapo can torment you...
