Almost three years ago to the day I purchased a new Dell XPS PC. My friends and I jokingly called it the Super Computer because at the time it was the most souped up, top of the line PC available, with all the bells and whistles one could imagine. Last night, in the course of its daily duties, the Super Computer suffered a fatal hard drive failure.
I can only say of the Super Computer that it was a good machine and served me faithfully for its lifetime, through countless games of Lord of the Rings Online and thousands of emails, chats, forums, and what not. Some have said that perhaps I could have it rebuilt, but I prefer to let it die with dignity, going as it did, in the midst of the tasks that it loved and performed so well. It died with its boots on.
The Super Computer is survived by its High-Def monitor, mouse, and keyboard.
