Anyway, I found out about what Cirno day is @ Cirno day, does that mean I'm a no-lifer?

Welcome to the club, kid! :p

Happy Cirno Day guys! (If you don't need an explanation to what that is.... get a life! :D )

I know a few of you were embarrassed by it. However despite Cirno's antics, some good did come out of this. Release a few screenshots, some renders... these are mod events. The community are only involved inasmuch as they are involved in the mod. What Cirno did to the forums and the site was a community event. It was itself totally unrelated to the mod, but it affected all of the community, in such a way that many of the users that were normally inactive were around much more often. The majority of the members on the forum took full advantage of the day, enjoying themselves and interacting with the other members and the entity of Cirno. Perhaps some were ashamed by it all and withdrew from the whole matter but I believe in many aspects of life, your achievements and profound conversation will stand as a testament to themselves more, while you yourself will be remembered most not by what you accomplished but by how you interacted with the people around you... especially during the times when everyone's enjoying themselves.

Another fairy entity also made an unsolicited arrival (while I was involved in allowing Cirno to run wild, this one was not my idea), and had a much more profound summation of the events of Cirno Day, so please check it out here. LINK

Bloom nobly, followers of Wars of Arda... the spectacle is over but the events are not! Among other things, one of the contests being organized may result in one or more candidates for a beta giveaway amongst other goodies. I hope to see you around the Wars of Arda forums!

In Topic: Need a new motherboard... uBTX 4-layered?

29 January 2009 - 08:32 PM

I'm now looking for a new motherboard to replace my old one, which is most likely the problem. My computer was a GT5032 model with a Foxconn C51GU01 and considering the availability for the exact same motherboard is pretty poor, I'll settle for a similar one. I checked out the form factor of the mother board and it listed it as uBTX 4-layered. Now google, along with every other search engine I tried, has enough trouble finding just a BTX, but I don't know what the added specifics mean. (uBTX is a variant I assume, but it seems quite rare and I still need to know what 4-layered means)

Is there a way to find out if my case supports ATX as well as BTX? as that would really open up the possibilities.. Also what does 4-layered mean, will it make a difference if I just get a normal BTX (or some obscure uBTX I managed to find)? Also, if you are familiar with the model, perhaps you could recommend a motherboard that would not be a problem either in price-range or availability. (as in, I can actually get one within the next few weeks and I don't have to pay over 200 bucks)

First question: Are your monitors plugged into the power strip/UPS snugly and correctly?
Second question: Are the monitors turned on?

Stupid, I know but you'll be surprised at how often the simple solution will elude you.

Yes for both, by selecting something in the display, I can get them to flicker momentarily before saying that they are going to sleep. Which is what is usual when the computer is turned off. However the computer should be running.

I'm pretty sure it has to be a simple solution, or otherwise something that can't be fixed. I just can't figure out what it is. I'm going to try replugging it again and maybe try a different monitor, although I'm pretty sure that is not where the problem is...
