Computers suck.

Dude check out my new pimpin' computer!
http://www.picpix.com/brad/gallery/000a2qrw

Not only is it not quiet, but it doesn't work, either! Yay!

I'm hoping... hoping hoping hoping.... that it's only not quiet because it hasn't got to the point where the operating system or some driver tells the fans and disks to calm down now that they're up. That's how my machine at work is... it starts loud for a few seconds, then shuts up.

But my machine at work is around enough other noise that I don't notice its fan or disk.

My standard for quietness at home is much higher. My current machine (the one I had intended to replace, but am now questioning) is fanless and diskless, so you can't really beat that. I hear the CD-ROM click when I turn it on. Cars a few blocks away are louder.

So tomorrow I get to drive this broken computer back to Vancouver and have them fix it. Bleh.
