So, this absolute bumhole has simply achieved what the mixed massed forces of the Unionist institution and the SNP Twitler Youth alike couldn’t – she’s principally shut down Wings Over Scotland.
Stealthily making her manner final evening previous all of the fortifications designed to stop her and her 5 associates (Pepsi, Daphne, Celeste, Coco and Rosie, in the event you’re ) from travelling from the Palatial Rat Surroundings to the ground of the Wings workplace, the tiny fool above holed herself up behind my printer, idly chewing on its USB cable to move the time regardless that there was meals in all places.
I finally situated her at round 2am, and as I moved the printer to get to her there was a crackle and a bang and a flash and a burning scent from the mangled cable.
I believed little of it within the second as a result of the printer (like all printers) is a huge arseache and barely used anyway, however 10 minutes later, having lastly recaptured the prisoner and put her in solitary for the evening to consider what she’d carried out, I seen that my PC was lifeless.
It’s not even instantly linked to the printer – there’s a USB hub between them they usually’re plugged into totally different energy strips. And there was no signal of something charred or exploded on the PC itself. However the energy button has completely no impact any extra.
I did all the plain stuff like unplugging it and leaving it for a couple of hours, but it surely didn’t assist. I’m sure one thing like this occurred earlier than and there was some intelligent hack trick involving doing stuff with the ability lead and buttons in a sure order that introduced it again to life, however I haven’t managed to Google it once more but. And clearly all of the restore locations are closed and my delving-around-inside-PCs-skills are minimal.
I’m typing this on an emergency resolution which isn’t any good for on a regular basis use, so if anybody’s bought any tech knowhow and might consider ways in which would possibly get the PC working once more, and which may be carried out by a halfwit, I’m all ears. Even they’re not as cute as Bonehead McSaboteur up there’s.
