this toot sent from a working (!!!) x9dae dual xeon system -- finally????


i mean i need to buy a new power supply that's more than 500 watts, but it hasn't crashed in 3 days, and switching to the old psu reintroduces the crash, so i think that's conclusive enough evidence

@trwnh nobody ever suspects the power supply is bad, but it happens frequently enough.

@tedu i suspected the psu was bad, but being habitually poor, you tend to start rationalizing any possible way you can avoid spending more money until it's absolutely required :welp:

a lesson i'm slowly unlearning, because i've found if you don't spend enough money upfront, you're probably going to pay with your time later down the road... and also with more money.
