Storms

This week hasn't been especially good for me, but I'm somewhat amused at the fortuitous timing of last night's storm. The power got knocked out briefly last night, and when I came home I found my computer shut down with a note from my roommate:

"Your computer was making beeping noises so I turned it off."

Sure enough, it's making an awful siren noise on boot, the kind of sound I associate (after years in the IT industry) with sheer terror, expensive purchasing orders, and CPUs melting in some kind of perverse recreation of a Salvador Dali painting. The whole thing is rather suprising, considering the surge protector and decent power supply. I'm running it down to the SCIC as soon as I can get a cart, but I don't really know what broke, or where I can get replacement parts from in time. Did I mention this is the start of finals week? >_<

As a result of all this, I'm going to be off of IM networks and checking my mail infrequently at best, until I can get my computer fixed.
