Rollin' like a freight train

Since my motherboard died, I have been forced to use my work laptop to do most of my work. It has also been necessary to borrow my wife’s computer to try and get access to my hard drive. Thankfully both of our computers were identical, so booting from my hard drive on her computer will not result in driver / chipset issues. I feel like I am closer, but it takes a while. While I have been out of the PC repair game for some time, thankfully the concepts remain the same. Heck even the utilities are mostly the same, only updated to adapt to the new technologies. My biggest challenge was deciding if I wanted an LGA 1511 or LGA 2011 CPU. The LGA 2011 won out. So, here on Monday I should be ordering my new hardware (motherboard, RAM, CPU and CPU cooler, power supply, and SSD) from Amazon, and I should have them by Wednesday if all goes as planned. I have been getting the rest of the rebuild prepped in the meantime. I have pulled all the old hardware out of my case, it is now sitting on my workbench, sad and alone. Don’t worry little fella, you will have some new tenants soon.

At this time, it looks like I will be 3d printing until late next week with any luck, but I may start twitch streaming my prints live after that time. I will need to pick up a new camera, but I have a line on those already. Stay tuned.

Thank you everyone for your support, and thanks for stopping by.
