Technological Black Thumb

[ #35697 ]

I've always harassed my wife about her black thumb. Every time she tries to deal with plant life, it dies. Well, I am experiencing the same thing with anything that plugs in lately. Yesterday's list of casualties:

  • Lost two drives in the RAID array in my home server. RAID utilities now show the array as "dead".
  • Sump pump will not stop running. Only a matter of time before it burns out.
  • Dehumidifier running constantly in basement. Humidity is 30%, dehumidifier is set to 50%, yet it still wants to run...
  • Mac Pro now crashes whenever you try to run something requiring 3D acceleration.
  • Home PC randomly crashing when 3D acceleration is running. Very infrequent, but very annoying.
  • Spotlight constantly grinding my MacBook Pro to a halt. If I disable Spotlight, it re-enables itself when I reboot (yes, even when I tell it not to).

It has not been a good week.

Make it stop, please!
