Every HP computer ever made ever in the history of ever is nothing more than a pile of mechanical garbage. As you all probably already know, over the 2+ years I've had this computer, every internal part has broken individually. The motherboard fried twice. The hard drive got screwed (and GT with it ASODGHASKDGHASLDHG) The CD rom drive doesn't play CD roms anymore, it just takes up space. And my current RAM chips are the 4th and 5th ones I've had. The first 3 have been corrupted. BUT! Me and my computer have come to a compromise. So far my computer has worked for three weeks straight (a record) without any problems. As long as I run Linux and don't do anything except open Firefox and GAIM, I seem to have no problems.
Kyle, why are you running Linux?
The answer, of course, is because I'm smooth like a bowl of cherries.
I'm fly like a pack of wolves.
I'm nice like a desert creature.
I'm cool like the ink inside a pen.
The actual reason is this: So like 5 months ago, I turn on my computer and get this message. HARD DRIVE FAILURE IS IMMINENT. BACK UP YOUR FILES IMMEDIATELY, OR BE A STUPID CRACKHEAD AND LET ALL OF YOUR POINTLESS NONSENSE DISAPPEAR. I called HP, and after avoiding their attempts at telling me that my A/C adapter was the problem, they sent me a new hard drive. So while in the process of backing up my files, I see that nothing seems to be wrong. 3 months go by, and I'm still running off of my broke hard drive, which seems not to be broke. So then I get all this inspiration out of nowhere, and I'm like "YES!!!!!!!!!! I'M GONNA LEARN LINUX!!!!! I'M GONNA BECOME A HACKER AND TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!!!" So I install Linux onto my new hard drive. (HP forgot to put Windows on my new hard drive when they sent it to me. Yep. That wasn't a joke. They actually FORGOT to put Windows on the Hard drive they sent me.) So anyway, I put Linux on. Of course my inspiration fades, and I completely lose the desire to learn how to use Linux. Finally, like a month ago, my old hard drive fails. Apparently "imminent" means four months.
Here it is: I put in my "new" hard drive with the intention of deleting Linux and installing Windows. So I put in my Windows CD and GUESS WHAT. My CD rom drive isn't working. I then proceeded to drop kick my computer so far that I got a field goal, and scored three points. We won, by a score of 22-21.
My computer is so broken that if I press the 'w' key, the CD-rom disc tray opens. When I close it, my computer restarts. And lucky for me, the password to log into my profile has a 'w' in it. Oh little star, how I wonder what you are.
In other news: Where did my baby go? We gotta get another again.
