Yeah, a fried graphics card just mean you can't turn the machine on, but unless the card explodes or something, the files on your drive should be safe.

If these files are so important to you that you react so harshly to them being threatened, you could buy a cheap portable HD with like 500 GB (I guess should be enough?) and keep a copy of the entire folder structure on it in case shit hits the fan. That way you have insurance in case your computer goes full potato mode on you.

Yeah, I have a lot of similar stuff done, and it's easy to do that kinda things so I'll send you whatever in a PM and yeah.
Please do! I've been itching to collaborate with someone who can make beats. Using obscure free ones works for me, but it's a little jarring when I hear the beats in other places or used by other people once I've written a song with them... I'd much rather work with someone I know and make something unique.

It's amazing how out-of-touch I've gotten with all of you. I've been busy, sure, but that's no excuse; I can easily write off an entire night for Warframe.

Anyway. Looks like I might have a job change ahead of me, and although it'd eat up even more of my time, it would also put me back in a "normal" rhythm and keep my head clear on the weekends.

If you want to keep in touch with me on a somewhat-regular basis, try my Discord chat: https://discord.gg/Ss7fUyw

It stopped working again, and this time my dad thinks it's the power thingy, so he's getting a new one as soon as he can but my computer is pretty old and rare so it might take a while, probably at least a week or so.

I have a 1TB external hard drive, which still has 300GB left, but it's impossible to copy the files onto it since the computer itself won't stay on. Also, it's possible for the external hard drive to break in one of the weird mini-electricity cuts that happen as well, so it would be pretty useless. For what it's worth, though, the night my computer originally stopped working, there was a series of big blackouts in Helsinki (which for some reason seem to have been ignored by the media as even happening (probably because they happened mostly in the poorer eastern parts of the city?)) and it obviously affected others as well. Blackouts are really rare here, so it's not surprising that them doing actual damage isn't acknowledged, I guess... but small ones do happen quite often, I think they're limited to our house or maybe even just our apartment...

Sorry, I really hope I'll be able to, but I don't want to take any risks with my mum's computer so I won't be able to send you anything right now for like a week at least, possibly never (if the external hard drive broke too...) but if I can, I'll do it as soon as I can.

Ah, sounds like your dad is right and your power supply is all screwed up from power outages. I've had the same problem in my computer too. Sometimes in the winter we would have small 1-3 minute power outages here and there and those sudden drops really mess with the power supply on a PC and can fry other components too.
I had to replace a power supply and a graphics card because of that... Actually now that I think about it this sounds eerily similar to what you're experiencing.

Once your power supply is replaced, you could plug your PC into a surge protector or a UPS unit. That should help your PC power supply live a long happy life.

Oh I've been there too. Entire evenings wasted doing ninja stuff at robots. Was fun but I had to put a plug in that.

Talking over Discord is actually a really neat thing.
Woody, once you get your PC back, we could chat over there re: music and stuff. I want to run some lyrics by you before I commit to recording (since the subject may be... not cool with you I guess).
