pants_of_doom: (hypnotizing tigress)
Today I packed up my roommate and my computer and my power drill and went to get lunch and deal with mechanical things, where by "packed up my roommate" I mean he drove. After vegan sweet potato pancakes at Deluxe Town Diner we headed over to [livejournal.com profile] dan4th's, where my bike, Mabel, has been languishing this past week. Justin had wanted to try to get the lock open before we did anything drastic like rent an angle grinder, so after he asked for a hammer I gave him my bike key.

The lock opened for him immediately like there had never been a problem.

I think this was because today broke freezing, but I don't really care - I slapped my new lock on there and instead of dealing with terrifying hardware (the car jack suggestion wouldn't have worked, as I put my lock around my back wheel) I got to sit around and play games.

Later we dropped Millie off with [livejournal.com profile] drinkywinky, who is going to poke at her for a bit and see if he can figure out what the problem is. She's started freezing in addition to spontaneously rebooting, but I'm not getting the same driver errors and rarely getting a blue screen at all, so best guess is it's a RAM issue.

This whole thing could have been really traumatic and inconveniencing, but for some reason it's been relatively easy to deal with.

I finished the reinstallation on the third attempt, after one spontaneous reboot and one error message. I got the drivers reinstalled and all that, and got an almost immediate BSoD.

I think it's not a software problem.

It's still rebooting a lot. )

Also, to top things off, my bike lock is frozen and I can't unlock it.
