Frequently Asked Questions (last updated September 24, 2013)

The journal mood makes sense if you keep reading, I swear...

So... shortly after I posted the last journal, I decided to call up another local computer-repair specialist on a whim.  I figured it couldn't hurt to get a second opinion, and people had said something about "it's weird that they can't just open up the computer and replace the screen, adhesive or not."  Turns out the second specialist thought he could still fix Jazz even if the first place said no, so I hauled my ailing computer in and handed him over.

Well... it turns out the screen is only one of Jazz's problems.  The tech guys plugged the computer in, and it promptly started smoking.  :flame:  Their diagnosis -- Jazz is trying to burn himself alive.  They pulled out his hard drive, tested it, and found it still worked, so they dropped it into an external hard drive for me.  And Friday I go back to their store to shop for a new computer, or at least a refurbished one that isn't too expensive but will still last me awhile.

The guys at the shop were pretty amazed that I had Jazz as long as I did without major issues -- they said that it wasn't uncommon for HP Pavilion owners to see their computers have serious problems or even burn out completely after six to nine months, and that there were even lawsuits against the company.  I guess I just got lucky.  :XD:  Jazz has served me well through six years, five BotCons, one TFCon, two Fandemoniums, and at least one long-distance family vacation, and he will be retired with honors.  Thank you for your service, Jazz-meister.  :salute:

And I won't lie, I'm already pondering what to name my next computer.  :giggle:  Teletraan-1 is way too obvious... Decepti-traan maybe?  Deszaras?  Soundwave?  We'll see when I actually get one, I guess...

So with all the computer fuss going down, I didn't mention how last weekend went.  :XD:  It was the first time all four of us siblings have had a chance to get together in years, so it was a fun, if crowded and hectic, experience.  We watched movies, went out to dinner Saturday evening, played board games, and just had a good time in general.  And it was fun catching up with my older brother, who I haven't seen in three-and-a-half years.

I did sit my brother down and make him watch Pacific Rim before he left -- his wife is extremely hyper about what movies are allowed in their house and won't let him watch anything rated over PG.  I'll never get tired of watching Pacific Rim, but I'll be honest, most of the fun of watching it this time was seeing my brother's reactions.  He cracked up laughing multiple times, gushed "that's crazy!" at least once every five minutes, and all in all seemed to really enjoy himself.  His expression at seeing Otachi sprout wings and at the revelation that one of the Kaiju was pregnant was pretty priceless -- I looked over both times to see his jaw hanging open in shock.  I love sharing my obsessions with people and seeing that they genuinely enjoyed themselves.  :D

Still chipping away at the To Fight Monsters one-shot.  Hopefully it'll be done and beta-read by the end of this weekend.  Crossing fingers anyhow...

Hey, is there any order you recommend for reading the crossover between you and Phantom Jedi? I plan to read the series in order during the Sunday of this week since all of my other obligations like college homework, a social gathering and other online projects will be finished by then.
