    Not a April Fools but still rather funny that it happend on April 1st. Maybe my computer is playing a joke on me? hehehe one can wish....

    So lets do a run down...

    1. I forgot I was cooking and payed more attention to the teleport hub building then the food and I set the Texas toast on fire.

    2. I knocked a candle off of the table and had a blast putting that out.

    3. My Power supply decided to go Pop and make a great smell. Sparks count as fire I think. It also took part of my hard drive with it. (While I was backing up important files) I won't even list everything thats on it until I know what is all lost.

    So I think the Paladins are behind this. Cleansing by fire perhaps? If it comes down to it I will just blame it all on Petra Fyde because for some reason it makes me feel better. *Keeps on smiling*

    I just have to laugh because I mean really? Who seriously creats fire three times back to back to back? I think maybe someone is telling me to become a fireman? HAHAHAHA

    I think you should stay away from anything flammable.

    I usually only use this to lock flame fest threads, but I'll make an exception. Not sure I'm accepting all that blame though. :D
    Seriously, I hope you haven't lost anything vital :(

    I seriously think this thread should be locked for Gareth's excessive flaming of himself.

    Yes, you get credit for 3 fires. Invest in a CO2 extinguisher. Putting water on an electrical fire is worse than being the victim of a Corp Por.

    Nah, cleansing by fire doesn't fire you it fires US when we cast it. I'd be looking at any mages...kal vas flam! Now there's fire damage. Or possibly corp por!

    Alrighty if Petra won't take the blame then I shall blame Chesapeake. You guys are to active and require alot of energy to keep up with. So much energy that the computer couldn't handle it hehe.

    So far it looks like I lost old RP documents, old (PaxOku) stuff and tons of pictures but still allot of pictures on here. Shesh I never knew how much crap I had on this thing.

    Oh dude that sucks my power supply on my HP went out and I had to send it to manufacturer, but I forgot to take out my Total Annihilation game from the cd drive and they kept the game! Those bastards. Had to find TA and buy it from third party since it's such an old game now. I got a free power supply due to warranty, and that works until this very day, but damn, haha, my original TA! I play SupCom now though, so eh.

    The power supply most companies ship with, like Dell, Gateway, HP, etc., is usually so ****ty, that if you add like anything, say an external harddrive even, the power supply begins to just wear out :/ damn like 300-410 watt power supplies, haha. Best to gut a cpu out and opt for at least a 500 I think, and make sure there are enough fans, and get a better vid card of course while you're at it. I need to ditch this HP or take it apart but I ended up getting a Dell and rigged that for my Bettie.

    Speaking of power supplies. About 5 or 6 years ago, I bought some little small form factor desktops for general use in my office. They all had power supply failures. Rather than spend a bunch of money buying tiny 200 watt power supplies that would fail again, I did this:

    Sure they are ugly, but reliable and quiet.

    (One of these is an Antec 430 watt the other is a Thermaltake 550 watt)
