Did not see that Craig, did you get a new or fix your pc?

New here, too.  Not an expert, but I rebuild my computer every couple of years.  I have a problem.  Desktop suddenly quit working.  Just shut down in an instant.  AMD chip, Asus board, 600-watt power supply.  Pressing the on button on the case did nothing.  Let it sit a couple of hours (other things to do), then hit the button.  Computer boots up, then shuts down, zap, half hour later.  The green power light on the board is on, but hitting the switch does nothing, no fans or drives come on, nothing happens.  Is it likely to be the ps, the chip, the board?  All the connections are tight, nothing unplugged.  Classic case of overheating?  Bad chip?  Clueless.  I was about to order a new chip and board, but thought I would beg here first.  Ideas?

New to this group.  Professionally I'm a translator (speak English, Spanish, French and Portuguese), but I'm also an aspiring FOSS hacker, Debian Gnu/Linux user, and Free Software supporter.  I develop websites (especially multilingual sites), as well, with html and css skills, learning php and javascript, jquery, etc., pretty handy with joomla and wordpress. I write software primarily in tcl/tk, but also a bit of python, perl, bash, etc.  I've used gnu/linux for a decade, but still consider that I'm hardly an expert. There's always more to learn.

Worried about your laptop or portable device wandering off without you... well worry no more. Prey the open source anti-theft multi-platform solution could be the answer you are looking for.

In case some of you were not aware of the Dispora project, it is suppose to go open source today, and to beta in October.

I opined at work yesterday: Using Microsoft Access to develop a multi-user application is like riding a unicycle to work and then trying to carpool with it.
