Oh, Crap

I think I know what happened to my new PC.

It has a massive air intake with a small venturi-style funnel built in, which tunnels outside air directly to the fan mounted on the processor. It has a grid directly below that one, through which air tends to return to the outside.

Both are located on the right side of the case. My old computer had neither opening, and I kept it on the floor against the left side of my desk. I put the new computer in the same place--which meant there was an inch-thick pine board completely smothering both the cooling intake and exhaust.

That can't be good. And you know who who has to take all the blame, of course. That's right: Tom Kotowski.

Speaking of problems, have you made any adjustments to your blog? My Bloglines Feeds no longer picks up your blog content other than the title. In order for me to read your blog I must visit your site manually. I hate doing that because reading the white type on black background is very tough for my aged eyes, but I would rather do that than not read you at all.

Can you help an old man?

Oh, and congratulations on being selected to go to Blackwater. I know you will enjoy that.

Well, it's nothing I did on purpose, but that doesn't tell us much. I'll look into it, but I barely understand how Bloglines and similar services work.
