    So, after a recent play-through of Deus Ex, I was in the mood for another first-person RPG. I keep hearing rave review after rave review for Fallout 3, plus I see that it is on Steam, so I get it. Takes an hour to download and install.

    I get through the baby part, through the birthday party, fire my BB gun, I'm like, yeah this is going to be awesome! I go to use the bathroom, come back, and my computer turns off before my eyes. I think, "Oh the power went out," but I see that everything else is still on.

    To make a long story short, I lost the motherboard in my computer. I have tested everything else. At least it was the least expensive part to have to replace, but crap, it sucks. I dropped $80 on a new one with 2-day shipping.
