Out of the Blue

My work PC has been driving me nuts with freezes the last couple of days... I just pulled it apart and found the secondary cooling fan that exhausts air from above the dual CPUs was dead. Luckily I had a working fan from an identical case to replace it with, and I am extremely hopeful this solves the problem, especially since I don't have many more ideas about what to try here.

Anyway, the turning of the calendar page marks the passing of another year for me, as today is my birthday. I have been working on an fairly erratic schedule lately and had last night targeted as when I would get back to getting these morning updates up in a more timely fashion, but decided that if I was unable to take the day off, that I would give myself a break on the sleep depravation required to push this schedule back into shape. I hope you can forgive my self-indulgence here, and I wanted to let anyone else as frustrated as I am at the inconsistent first posting times that this is to be addressed shortly... I just need to blow out some candles first (before the smoke alarm goes off).
