Holy shit, my A/C unit just died in the middle of a heat wave!

If you're close to Long Island, you know the deal.

Now I have to work off my POS laptop because my desktop is a fucking beast and will overheat my room. This thing can't even handle Quake 3. I can't jack off, because my body heat will heat it up. I can't even play on my Genesis or SNES because my 20" TV will fry my room in seconds.

I was going to clean my room today, and now I can't because I have to move around a lot of shit, and I would overheat from exertion.

Since Satan has taken the form of water molecules on an 80 degree day, if I open the windows I will die of heat stroke.

Fuck.

Tell me about it. I hate old A/C units. We have a new outside unit but the attic unit is going on 40 years old in 2009, so it isn't "Top of the Line."

All we need is a new intake fan, everything else works. If you run the unit now it would probobly overheat, cause a fire, etc. etc. and it wouldn't cool shit!

Oh, I forgot, since my ThinkPad has a battery that literally holds zero (Yes, I mean ZERO, ya unplug, ya lose work) it's little flashing orange light is pissing me off, and I think I'm going to go stab my eyes out now.

Since it's a 600 series model, it's similar to the new T-Series. They are designed to be low size and weight, so the battery mounts on the underside and if you remove it it may tip over due to the topheavyness of the screen. You can buy a battery that resides where the CD-ROM drive is, but even then the light would still be fucking blinking.

And yes, I do know about the 600 series charging problems, and we all know the battery should be removed after it's done charging because it "Trickle Charges" the battery afterwards, which is unessecary. If it were a RadioShack battery, then yeah, that would be cool, but Lithium Ion batteries found in laptops don't take to that very well.

I've also tried the "Smart Connector" trick where you cover up the two middle connectors on the battery so the unit will not recieve the battery status and charge it, but it doesn't even charge. I'll try again later.

AC Units are cheap. Go out and buy one. Or check craigslist or something, sometimes you can get it cheaper or FREE!

To answer all your questions, it's so hot in here that I am literally having beads of sweat drip onto my keyboard.

The whole unit is fucked - it decided to drip the condensation through my cieling again - above my bed. I swear Saddam was in here - the heat from the room combined with my body's odor free bacteria really like it in that AC water.

The fan is dead, the power system in it is busted (No shit! My lights dimmed to zero when it flipped on!), the condesation collecting can and the emergeny can are busted, hence the condensation.

You would swear a Thai whore died in here. Thank God I can't smell shit now...

I have a relatively new unused 5" RCA B&W TV somewhere...maybe I should hook it up. It has composite jacks so I could hook my DVD player into it and watch Happy Tree Friends.

Holy fucking crabs, the situation got much worse yesterday.

I was able to create a hole in my wall from the condensation.

On top of that, there was a horsefly that resembled a 767 in my room because I accidentally left a screen open. I'm not afraid of insects at all - I've always loved them since I was five. But this thing fucking freaked me out - I had no clue what it was. It was so fast and loud, AND AGGRESSIVE, that I didn't sleep.

Why?

My white skin would be the brightest thing in the room - and there have been so many fucked up insects around this year I was paranoid. I tried to smash it with my Biology textbook, but it was too fast. I searched the bathroom for hair spray but there was none, so I settled on Odor Eaters Aerosol Foot Powder. I gassed myself to hell, and it didn't really work - in fact, my rats leaned over to the open window because they couldn't breathe either. I notice some Febreeze on my dresser and I grab it, as if it was World War II.

After five minutes of spraying that shit, I see the bastard glide to the ground because I gummed his wings up - Just as planned.

I couldn't find my glasses, and I'm 20/200 - so it was a longshot. I see him lying on my bed and smash him with a shirt. The thing was almost half an inch long - holy shit!

After that, I'm still pissed off, so I decide to play Atlantis on my newly self-repaired Atari 2600, AND MY WHOLE DESK IS COVERED IN FEBREEZE! I almost had a heart attack when my OutRun 2019 cartridge was soaked - That's a fucking rare piece. Fortunately the label was fine and it worked 100%. I had to wipe everything up, and after my laptop, monitor, random computer parts, Genesis, Atari, 5" RCA B&W TV, and my homework (Fuck) are de-wetted, there's a mini-wasp right on the fucking edge of the desk. So I crushed it.

I hate living in a Zoo.

So, basically he doesn't know :rolleyes:

When I was in Austin, 90 was cool, and I'm English, I was lucky I was able to get out the door without having some lack of air. :confuse:
