Find out more

Welcome visitor, :)


My iMac is from early 2009, and it's slowly dying (pout), so thank you for visiting!
The power supply unit and a few other things broke a while ago, but Apple was thankfully able to fix it for now.
The hard drive is getting slower and slower, the monitor has regions of white and yellow as the tubes show wear and tear.
To mention a few things currently wrong with it.

The iMac is basically on 24/7. It's how I socialize, do a few my hobbies, and get through my days
More about that furtherdown this page.



It really is time for a new computer
