8.5.11 ~ 217/365

05 Aug

You’ve got to love technology (not).
I’ve only had my laptop for about 5 months now, but lately, it has been getting so hot that I can’t even sit with it on my lap. The other night, after I realized I was burning my finger every time I touched the mousepad, I decided to stick a candy thermometer underneath it to see how hot it really was. How does 120 degrees F sound? Ouch!
So after 2 hours on the phone with Dell, they finally agreed to send someone out to repair my fan and motherboard. It was kind of sad to watch the technician take apart my computer (eeee! What if it didn’t turn back on when he was done? How would I blog? lol), but I couldn’t resist when he got the motherboard out- I asked if I could take a picture, and he was nice enough to allow me to quickly set up a shot. So I give you- the guts of my computer:

And yay! This is officially the first picture I edited in RAW. I’ve only had my new camera for how long now? It wasn’t my fault though, my version of Photoshop wasn’t equipped to take RAW files from the D7000 yet– but now it is, and this is the first picture I attempted to edit in RAW! I can see there’s a whole crop of new things to learn now 🙂
