After only a few hours scouring LowYat.NET, I picked up a somewhat second-hand Powerlogic Viper case for my gaming machine from garagesell/alvinchong. Supposed to be brand new, but written up for insurance claim. Anyways, I got it somewhat lower, because it wasn’t brand new, as promised. Luckily, I can probably manage to fix up all the things that’s wrong with the case.
Thing is, they tried to sell it off at the original price. :
Anyways, I’ve already managed to work around the broken mounting screws for the front plate, the disconnected power LED, and the defective thermal sensor for the LCD display. Next I gotta look at the broken off side fittings, and the missing side window clips.
I’d have finished sooner, i.e. yesterday, but the morning’s nagging backache turned into a full scale muscle twist. It hurts mid torso, towards the right. And the pain is usually felt from my back, altho sometimes I can feel it emanating from the front. The pain slowly builds up, and once the peak is triggered, it stays there, with the slightest move constantly triggering a painful attack. Fortunately, I managed to stay rather still while sleeping last night.
Felt better in the morning, but the pain slowly built up again. Managed to keep it at bay this time.. cold showers seem to help. Managed to turn up for Rizal’s open house, thanks to Az for picking me up (had to pay him in peanut butter M&M’s tho :P). Besides the usual ppl, Noris was there, whom I’ve not seen since Std 6. He seems the same as always. 🙂
