One of my coworkers is probably going to end up losing their job, because they're proving unreliable and bad at the job. :P

The tongue emoticon is a bit smilier than most. I would prefer him not to lose his job, because that sucks and he’s not a bad guy outside of his work issues.

Anyway the thing I am frowning about now is that my husband is sick with a lung infection, ironically contracted at the doctor’s office last week. :facepalm2:

My computer's speakers made a loud sputtering noise before the computer itself suddenly shut off and I got a whiff of burning plastic. This does not bode well for the rest of my weekend.

Right? I knew a fan had been sputtering but there hadn't been any performance issues. I let it cool down and then tested if it would turn on, and it would not, so I'm hoping it's the power supply but it could just as easily be the motherboard. The tiny LED indicator on the case's power button was glowing, but that just means the wiring's intact, right? I really hope it's not the motherboard.

I looked up how to test a power supply and it involved sticking a paperclip in the 24 pin connector, but I literally don't own a paperclip so that's out.

My ex got a hold of me not too long ago. A mutual friend of mine and my ex's had passed away from cancer about a week ago. His funeral is on Thursday... hopefully I can go. Another surprise to another shitty year... He was a good guy... it's not fair.

A voltmeter is an handy thing to own and they are really inexpensive. I would not be without one. But hey, if the possibility of taking a good amount of current into your body via a paperclip to save $9.49 (Amazon Prime and free one day shipping), go for it.

In other words, I recommend a cheap voltmeter
