Bah! My machine died yesterday, and just as I got 3dwm's
viewing transform working in cooperation with the model
transform. I was enjoying zooming around a spinning model
when it hard locked (which it had been doing about once a
day for 3 days), except this time it wouldn't boot.
I'm hoping the problem is the power supply. On power-on the fans run and the HDs spin, but nothing happens, no video, no beeping. I hope the power supply is damanged and can't supply the correct regulated voltage to the motherboard, so it fails POST.
I was a cheapskate when I moved here, I brought my PC in bits as hand luggage and bought the cheapest case I could find (hey I just got here and hadn't been paid!). So the thing always ran a bit hot with the Voodoo5, SCSI controller, NIC, DVD ROM, CD-Burner and 2 HDs sucking power. With it being a 3 day weekend and listening to CDs constantly I think I finally pushed it over the edge. So at lunchtime today I bought a bigger case with fans on the front and back and a better power supply. Let's hope that's the problem and not a dead motherboard. I also hope my linux HD it still intact.
