::Torn::

I am not sure what to do. My G3 refuses to come to life for me. I am torn. I don’t know if I should continue to invest time and money into my Macintosh. If money was not object, I’d probably purchase a new G4 tower. But I won’t. Money is rather tight right now. More importantly I don’t know if I want to continue using the Mac. I’ve been using my Windows machine for the last 5 months and I haven’t really had any complaints. I do most of my work on PC’s now, and my interests are gravitating towards Linux. I feel like it is not worth the effort to resurrect this machine just for email and a couple games. I don’t know what else to do. New power supply, new voltage regulator, new motherboard, and still everything does not work. I’d like to get it working again, but the law of diminishing returns is starting to apply here.

Crap! Aftershocks are rumbling across the island. Just had one about a minute ago. God that sucks. Scares the hell out of me.

This is another post

I am checking out some more html codes.


I like this. I might have to get more serious about this blog.

And more testing

There was an earthquake last night. A big one. Shortly after 2:05 am, a 7.2 earthquake struck my island. This is the second time in six months that a large earthquake has struck in the middle of the night, following a 7.0 temblor that shook Guam in October 2001. Last night’s quake sent dishes and plates crashing in my house, moved my refrigerator about four feet before dumping its contents on the kitchen floor and broke a number of other things before plunging my home and the rest of Guam into darkness. I can think of nothing worse than these nocturnal earthquakes. They are absolutely terrifying.

But I should thank God no major damage occurred. Buildings on Guam are designed to withstand super typhoons, and the reinforced cement block construction holds up pretty well against earthquakes as well. I think the fact that Guam is an island helps as well. It just bounces and jostles around in the ocean instead of grinding up against a continent or other large immovable mass.

As a testimony to that fact, the power was restored this morning shortly before 10:00 am. That is some kind of record for the Power Authority crews. I congratulate them on a job well done.
