I suppose that my macbook is jealous:

All of my parts for the new PC that I'm building showed up yesterday. While I was building it, the macbook (lappy) was keeping me entertained with a little bit of music. She's certainly seen better days since Iraq; a cracked bezel, kind of yellowish in color, inverter causes random screen flicker, and the fan is rather loud due to all of the dust from that nasty place. Anyway, lappy is playing music when all of the sudden, she shuts off.

At this point it got what it wanted, my attention. Turned it back on, very sluggish to boot. I get into OS X finally and open up the dashboard and see that the CPU is reporting 88 degrees Celsius! Even worse, the Exauhst fan is reporting 0 rpm Oh well, now I just can't keep it on and watch any multimedia for very long. Anyone have a spare exhaust fan sitting around? I might just pick one up from iFixIt. That's what I get for flashing around a nice new tower in front of my faithful macbook I suppose.

One last push!

Addendum:

The macbook is now laughing at me as my first water cooling system had a small (and now repaired) leak.
