A Friday. So many things went wrong.
- I lost my tiny flashlight. It’s a tiny one, no wonder I lost it.
- I was going to replace cooling systems on a video card. Got the kit, but it’s missing tons of parts.
- A power supply with busted fan.
- Smokes came out of the same power supply.
- Power supply was replaced only to find out the onboard USB controller was shorted out and busted. It could no longer supply power to USB devices.
- Wasting a few hours trying to install Windows XP on busted machine; see 3, 4, and 5.
- Found out the battery of a 13″ MacBook no longer holding charges. Now I have to go to Apple Store and get it exchanged.
That’s a lot for one day.
Asides from that, I purchased:
- Fujitsu MH2120-BH-R 2.5″ 120GB SATA 5400 RPM Hard Drive
- Corsair DDR2 1GB PC5300 (667MHz) SO-DIMM (VS1GSDS667D2)

I’ll add more as soon as I have more info.
Finally, Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is available in Mac OS X Universal Binary.
One of the best and FREE game out there. Did I say FREE?
The PowerPC version was a resource hog. I’m downloading it right now and will test it later today.
I’m having trouble connecting to most servers.
From Timothee Besset:
“I hope ETPro and other major ET mods out there can update and support the new Mac client soonish.
Meanwhile you may have a bit of trouble finding servers that will accept this new client
(the best approach may be to use qstat  and filter for servers running etmain/,
I haven’t found a good third party server browser for OSX at this point)”
I used to play a lot at Hamsters House Of Fun server.
