Dead PC?

My PC is threatening death again. It's refusing to boot. It does that sometimes. I have no idea why. I'm honestly not sure if it is the motherboard or the power supply. Well, as everything else spins, I suspect the motherboard.

So, this leads me into the quest for a replacement computer. Annoying. I'm still wavering between another hand-built PC, a new cheapo, and an off-lease workstation. My last PC was supposed to be low noise, but it never truly achieved that goal. It always built up too much heat. I may reuse the case, but I'm not sure.

Meanwhile, I noticed that my new FiOS router has USB ports. Hmmm. I may be able to use those.

Upgrading would be no issue if I didn't also want to replace my laptop. Unfortunately, MacBooks are far more expensive than cheapo desktop. At the moment, I can't quite afford both.
