Only slightly cranky

If by "Vista" you mean getting ass-raped, performance-robbed and DRM molested ... no I don't think Fing likes that much.

Vista was running pretty good after the clean install.

The soundforge software I use to edit MP3's didn't work. Power DVD didn't work. Itunes don't work.yadda yadda blahblahblah.

Flaky vid drivers... Had to run sound card drivers that were made for a different make computer to get the sound to almost work like it should.

Still needs time to grow. Give it time for everyone else to get software/driver updates for Vista in place and MS punch out SP1 to fix the major holes they've already found. Then it might be something.

M$ REALLY needs to fix WMP. even under XP, version 11 is a resource hog. Will load the new processor to around %25 on both cores just to play a DVD. Almost as bad running an MP3.

Bummer. Sad

Got to looking at Tiger-2, Monster CPU cooler fan location, Location of cooling fan in new PSU...

Then decided to swap PSU from Tiger-1 in to Tiger-2 as new PSU woulda interfered with the CPU fan.  Confused

Tiger-2 online and running as it should.

Problem... Are PSUs sposed to make interesting hissing noises when you turn them on?
I think the unit I pulled out for replacement has more than just a cooling fan issue.  Doh

Oh. well...  New power unit will be on site tomorrow evening. Till then. Tiger-1 is off-line.
Sad (No SMP till tomorrow) Sad

 Eh Why is there a resistor across the main power input on this PSU?

Power company want to make sure it sucks power all the time or something? Eh

That makes absolutely no sense to me at all.
There is no kidding, a resistor connected across the hot and neutral wires as they come off the 110v power connector...  Eh
If that darn thing had shorted, it woulda made lfe sorta interesting. At least till the breaker tripped.
