When it Rains, it Pours

If you look closely you can see where a hole was burned through the middle of the fan!

Things have been going downhill for me recently. I don’t think it’ll come as a shock to anyone when I say our economy is firmly in the toilet. My work has been hit by it and thus my hours at work have been drastically cut back(I’m only working 15 hours this week). So I’ve been searching for a second job recently. Of course in this bad economy more companies are letting people go than are bringing in new people. To top it off as I sit down to play the Aion beta this weekend I find that my video card has pretty much fried.

I guess the fan on the video card quit for whatever reason, and the card over heated causing the fan to melt! As you can imagine this means I was unable to get anything done that I was hoping for during this weekends beta! I’m not sure, but I think the computer is out of warranty now. I need to dig up the paper work. If I’m right though, I’m pretty well screwed. With the hard times at work right now, there’s no way I can afford a new video card anytime soon. Which leaves me doing all of my internet activities on my laptop. My laptop runs WoW just fine, but Aion? We’ll see next Beta weekend…

    I’m sorry to hear about your job and video card. But on the bright side, Aion despite it’s impressive graphics is fairly low on hardware demand. I think if your laptop runs WoW well. Then it should be able to handle Aion.

    I think.

      Thanks! It can run WoW totally maxed out, even in a raid. So I’m hopeful that it should be good enough to run Aion even if it is with the settings turned down to low.
