Please someone just shoot me in the face (part 3)™
I had a big long thing written, but I deleted it. Basically I had enough money to make it thru the school year, but after buying a voodoo5, breaking it, getting a traffic ticket, causing $250 worth of damage to my car, and as I go to put my case back together I realize i made the blowhole on the wrong ****ing side. I feel like I know alot of **** but dont have the experience to apply it without ****ing it up.
Yeah... bout' the only thing you wouldn't want to overclock, would be your clock...
Unless you just want to be early all the time..

RAM - you have my condolences. I know the feeling. The only thing that you can hope for is that all the **** happens at once so that there is something better to look foreward to. Better luck in the future.

Whoa. Thats some heavy ****. I know how you feel not having enough money (im only 14 but i still have to pay for my own stuff, but my paper round pays nuts)
To save your case, make the hole bigger and square, put a bit of perspex or plexiglass over it, and you have yourself a window

That just seems to be life in general, guys.
I'm nearly 50 YO, have house paid for and some rental property (tax shelter) plus decent job: Doesn't seem to matter - can save some, but there's always that series of emergencies that hits right where it hurts the most.

It always seems to me that if you are always tight nothing ever happens but just when you think you are doing good and are in the clear you get knocked all the way back down.. I know all about this too and it sucks but once you get over it and move on you should be fine.. at least for a little while

Ack, blowhole on the wrong side? That's bad! Hope tomorrow will be better for you though!

...Yeah, this past summer I had $150.00 left to pay off on a credit card that I had been working at for approximately 2 years. Well, I ended up getting a speeding ticket for $200.00, my car broke down and it cost $200.00, and I ended up buying a CL Geforce2 for $300.00, and finally, I dropped a stick of 128 mgs of pc100 ram on the floor, it got shocked and didn't work anymore, So I went and bought a stick of 128mgs of pc 133 for $170.00 So much for finishing off that credit card I had worked so hard for.
