Don’t Cross the Streams.
(Here’s the skinny: Over-the-shoulder camera angle, ala Resident Evil. You play a new recruit for the Ghostbusters, and your AI squadmates are members of the original team. There is a CO-OP MODE! I, I think I need a towel.)
Dayton Daily News got in touch with me tonight and let me know they’d filled the position with someone from their existing staff. I remain on their list of applicable folks, but there’s nothing open for me at the moment.
I’m bummed. This job would’ve been perfect in so many ways…
I may still score something with them, but it’ll probably be months later.
Back to the want ads.
I got a call back from the Dayton Daily News, but my phone was dead, so they just left a ‘call me’ message. I called ’em, but they’re out of the office ’til this Friday. Whee.
I’m still getting sporadic blue screens and WoW crashes a lot. Now and then the system will just freeze with no error or BSOD at all.
The randomness of it all says to me ‘power supply problem’ but I don’t really know. Asus’s PC Probe program reports that the 12V line from my power supply is running over 12V, getting as high as 12.38 sometimes. I see that as a bad sign, x,x I fiddled with my molex connectors to try and redistribute the load, but PC Probe reports no change…
The way I see it, it’s either:
Windows reacting badly to a system change
Esoteric incompatibility between memory and motherboard
Very small RAM problem that wasn’t detected with one pass of that memtest program.
I backed up 16 gigs of junk last night in case I need to nuke and pave. I found myself wondering why I couldn’t just drag an old power supply out of storage and run a few things in my case off of it…but realized it wouldn’t really help with the motherboard and its massive needs. :K/
