The Software/Hardware Failure Game


Recommended Posts

After many days of file-writing errors I finally get the problem fixed, but that has left me an idea...

Here is what you would do: The first person say what he wants to play/use, and the next user create a scenario in which the software/hardware failed, and then state what he want to play/use, and the next user did the same thing as the previous user, and so on.


Me: I'm gonna play Distant Worlds.

2nd User: You clicked on Distant Worlds executable, but nothing happens. I'm gonna reboot the computer.

3rd User: After the reboot the hardware instantly overheats and shuts the computer down...


4th User: ... I'm gonna play SpaceChem.

Me: You ran SpaceChem, but then I hacked your computer and stole a vital part of SpaceChem. Now you can't play SpaceChem...


So yeah, it's like "Make a wish and have it horribly corrupted!" game, but with much more technology theme. Are you up to it?

Yes, there are no more EVA tools... So you cannot repair the computer.

I try to take the RAM sticks out and replace them. Then I boot on my Mint Linux boot key and verify the integrity of the hard disk by using fsck /media/nazalassa/cptDriveCK47 .
