I strayed from my “Don’t panic” phylosophy yesterday when i get woken up with Lee’s screaming :
ODED ! There’s smoke coming out of your computer !
At the beggining i thought the worse has happend and that my computer is on fire.
Then when i saw where the smoke is i though my computer was spoken for since it seemed like it was comping from the CPU.
Later inquiries showed that the power supply
was the source of the smoke. Probably some capacitor went bad.
So 140NIS later and an hour’s worth of bicycling got me a new power supply and now i’m precious is up and running again.
Now, it’s time to do some backing up !
