Yes, I am a Higher Functioning Mammal. To prove it, I demonstrate the use of Tools. For example, consider the following item:
You may recognize this as an every day cap to a medicine bottle, which is entirely correct. However, I, as the higher functioning mammal that I am, have put it to a new use: Laptop Airspace Gap Creator. Because apparently, the approximately 1.5k I spent on this HP Pavilion wasn’t enough to get a laptop with enough cooling power to keep my NVIDIA graphic card cool enough, which creates some very interestingly – timed Computer Freeze-O-Rama. At which point I lean on my power button. Oy.
Seriously, are you kidding me? I bought the bestest fastest uberest l33test laptop I could get for less than 1.5K, specced it out myself, and I can’t simultaneously run iTunes, do some video editing, and keep Tweetdeck running in the background? Seriously? LAME! I mean, I can understand the crashing during WoW. I mean…bad timing and all, that’s for sure. “ZOMG NOO! I was just about to kill that massively uber elite lvl 80 beeelion mob with teh dragon portrait that would drop my Bracers of Ultimate Mageyness!!!! DON’T CRASH!!!” /wailing sob of agony!! Yeah no worries, I got over it. I’m kinda over WoW as a whole, for the time being, but that’s another post.
What’s my point? Um. Any recommendations for a laptop cooler solution? My medicine cap is getting a little melty around the edges.
