At 622am, my laptop finally gave up the ghost. After a week of sluggish behavior, flickering screens, and random shutdowns, Ixion finally succumbed to a blue screen.
After the blue screen, the laptop refuses to start, charge, or power on whatsoever. I've gone thru every spare part i have in posession, but apparently, the system is officially dead. I got no signs of life, regardless of what i used.
For those that never saw it, Ixion was a fine laptop, and a credit to its model. During its lifetime, Ixion demonstrated continuously superior performance, despite the abuse it had recieved from repeated falls, drops, overheatings, overclockings, and stairwell flights (fell down the stairs twice). It will be missed, but shall be remembered by becoming the standard of judgement used for the new systems to come.
Let us now take a moment to remember this fine system, and reflect upon the happier moments of its life, and those moments where Ixion itself changed our lives for better.
Rest in peace, young laptop. You have earned your happiness.

Access to access, disk to disk. May your spark shine on.
Needless to say, work is at an immediate halt until i can afford to replace my system, when work will resume again. You can still contact me here on IB, since i will have access by phone, but i now have no way to work. Thank you for understanding.
