At my suggestion, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and I went to Micro Center to buy a new case fan for minx today. Yes, it probably cost at least $5 more that way, but my machine is back up again.

On the other hand, we were up late enough that we slept really late today. As a result, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog didn't get back to working on configuring KMail for me. Maybe tomorrow.

I posted a few days ago, when my home desktop computer died unexpectedly because of power supply failure. We had to replace both the power supply and my trackball mouse to get it running again.

Last night, while I was trying to put the side back on the computer case, I noticed that the cooling fan was not moving though the machine was powered on (and in fact was connected to the Internet). Sure enough, the fan was gone, too.

So now the machine is powered down, until we can replace the fan. Then we can go back to what we were doing when I noticed the lack of fan--figuring out the proper configuration to let me send and receive e-mail through KMail again.

Whimper. :-(
