Back to Today's Deal

The OT Thread!! Post Here When You Feel The Need!



Well my old buddy Acer laptop finally died today . I dont sweat it too much because it was really old and i reckon it worked for twice as long as anyone could have expected out of him. I found a cause but i’m not sure i’m up for fixing it. I just might let it finally rest.

Here’s a pic from autopsy.

There are recycling centres for PCs but I’m not sure if they’ll just be glorified dumping grounds or not.


Mind sharing what the cause is?

I’m curious…


I have a Sony Vaio that I used for ten years, the poor thing endured a lot. The battery was the first to give up of course, then the fans, so it started to overheat if used for too long. I put it on rest after I got my desktop, but surprise surprise, the desktop’s mobo died too soon to compete with the Vaio’s lifespan.

My sister just recently was looking for some old photos that we had stored in that one and surprisingly it booted up and was still running. So even after using it for ten years, the old bud is still not giving up. Best part is that it ran with the infamous windows vista who everyone hated. :rofl:

It’s incredible how some laptops can last.


Power button contact got separated and it started short circuiting .


Sounds like a simple fix, though I could be wrong.


Someone has good taste in interior design & decor, I like it.


Reow! Everyone is so busy lately. Me did a ton of laundry yesterday. Also rearranging room - again.


Where’s the MIL Suite??? When can I move in? :joy:


ahahahahaha i just bought 20€ worth of candy, and i’m gonna be playing video games all night and eat sugary goods until i get dizzy, and there is nothing y’all can do about it because you ain’t my mom :rofl: :blush:
-was being like a 6yo that just got pocket money doing a raid on the candy isles :smile:

… inb4 i feel guilty tomorrow for allowing myself a cheat day :sweat_smile:

PS ofc i’m obviously not gonna eat it all today :expressionless:


Someone call this gnome’s mom, lol ^^ Don’t think you can eat it all today but wow! What goodies do you get?


yo, i bought $22 of candy 2 days ago :joy: (a whole kg actually :joy:)

i shared with the wife, mom and kids and still have some left though :joy:


heh what didn’t i get :yum:
some chocolate marshmallow thingies called Polly
some liquorice hard candy called Dracula
some (dark) chocolate bars with mint chips in, and some mixed gummies and liquoricetokens
… aaand some chocolate chip cookies
^everything was on sale, hence why i got swayed to get so much/many different ones :blush:

candy high five :candy::raised_hand:




@Gnuffi, @M00 thumbs up

Candy run approved. Never saw Dracula or licorice tokens before. I’m an odd duck who actually likes licorice. Mew! Most people I know look at me funny. Great sadness when I only found a tasty licorice flavoured tea here once. Now, can’t remember the name anymore.


ye i love liquorice myself, which is not that uncommon here compared to many other countries apparently. The “stronger” or saltier the better usually, only the dracula fits that here this time tho, the tokens are fairly mild and sweet/“kid’s liquorice” heheh


Looks like someone is going to candy island


Power cut here ahhh good thing its light and summer


A really nice sugar high…
