Good Riddance

I know that this isn't standard Haus fare, but this is big news. Saddam Hussein was executed today by hanging. Justice has been served. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Pondering the Imponderable

I just bought a belated Christmas present for myself--a new power supply for my main box. I came home last night and heard a strange noise emanating from my box. I stopped all the fans I could, but the noise was still there. I powered down and then powered it back up. The noise came back. I looked at the power supply fan and it was barely turning. Eventually it did get up to full speed and then the noise went away. Rather than wait for the magic smoke to come out, I bought a new 400W supply. Thankfully, that's an easy (and relatively inexpensive) fix.

Update! Forgot to mention that I thought my PDA had died yesterday. I ran the battery down and plugged it in for a couple of hours and checked to see if it worked. I tried to use it yesterday and it wouldn't power on. When I got home I plugged it in again and it came on, but it said it only had ~25% charge. So I left it plugged in until the wall wart was cool to the touch. Now it works fine again. Whew! I was not reveling in the thought of having to replace that.
