    Man that sucks

    Maybe it's time to let someone else assemble your PC? Those failure rates are way above avarage... Just pay a shop an hours wage and they'll assemble it and you'll get warranty on parts and labor

    Hope to see you in-game soon. It's lonely being the only admin left standing

    I thought we had decided the official term was "butt cancer"? :B

    If it'll help, you can have the old server hardware. It's not high-end anymore, but it'll still run Minecraft quite well. It's got an Asus P5QWS Workstation motherboard which has regular PCI, PCI-x and PCI-e slots. It was a truly awesome motherboard back then. It's also got a Core2Quad @ 3GHz, 8 or 16GB RAM(not sure what's in there right now), and an Nvidia 9800GT. It's all assembled in a PC case with hard drive, DVD player and PSU so you can't destroy it yourself unless you open the case... which you aren't allowed to do anymore :P

    If you want it, just let me know where to send it

    Wow, if you look up "generous" in a dictionary you find a picture of J.

    And I thought my luck was bad. First getting butt sickness, and now a broken computer. You need to get a genie to give you wishes.

    that is amazing I would quite happily pay for postage and a large donation towards the servers for that as at the moment my options are looking like having to splice a Sinclair zx81 with a Texas instramants calculator and a old fruit basket lol ...and I agree demman I just checked and there is a picture of j ....need to make a statue to him and Dom in the town when I get back online ....

    ps I PROMISE NOT TO OPEN THE CASE UP ...AND NO WATER COOLING LOL
