Hover For Names!

A Note From Your Administrators:
Nexus nearly reached its 15 year mark in RPing. Hard to believe, right? Unfortunately, it'll never reach that special benchmark--and that's okay! After fourteen years of experiencing the world of 616, RPing with players who were tremendous and creative, plus the many ups and downs that comes with fellow writers, the staff at NeXus thank you for being apart of our little community. With amazing respect to everyone involved and to those who added their own unique touches to our X-Men-verse, it's been my pleasure to RP with all of you!

To make this final: NEXUS is closed.

See ya on the flip-side, bub.

Came home and it wouldn't turn on. Plugging in the adapter kills the adapter. The internet says it's the battery, the adapter, the motherboard, or something else. I am replacing the battery first. It is due for replacement anyway, and the adapter is fine as long as I don't plug it into the laptop.

I will keep you lovelies updated as things progress! Hopefully, it will be a simple fix.

This affects Bella, Leyu, Eva, Fox, Saphir, and Sabra.

Update: Ordered a replacement AC adapter too, just in case. The one I have is old-ish anyway. Not super confident in my ability to fool with a motherboard. I think it'd be safer to turn to a professional for that, but hopefully it doesn't come to that.

In the mean time, my fix will be to stay late at the office in the evenings for fun times. I can lurk in cbox on the weekend via tablet. I'd use my tablet (I say mine, but it's from the Japanese cable company actually) for posts, but it's not particularly good at that.

Okay, so the AC adapter and battery are on the way. I preemptively talked to a repair guy, and he said that motherboard replacement is expensive....and I'd be better off buying a new laptop and then transferring the data. The laptop IS 5 years old already; that's old for electronics right? Welp, hopefully it doesn't come to that. We shall see!

....they sent my parts from the International Center in Cali (where it usually ships to Japan from) to the International Center in Chicago. No movement since then. sleep.gif;;; Hopefully, I'll see movement and delivery next week.

AC Adapter is here, but the battery is still on the way. -________- Still hoping everything will be all fixed after this, otherwise it means new laptop and data transfer (repairman says that'd be cheaper than replacing my old motherboard with a matching model and age...supposing it could even be found).

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to mourn the loss of my laptop. It served faithfully for 5 years, but could not continue on..

Anyway, the battery and AC replacement didn't work. -__- Money wasted. So now we're going to do a full replacement, but I'm aiming for something travel-friendly. I don't game on my PC, so it should be doable. I just need it to be light, have good graphics (I stream a lot), and good performance (basic non-profit, possible school work). If you haz the suggestions, let me know!

SOOOOO....Laptop shipped! It was surprisingly difficult to get one ordered. Between not shipping to my APO and the ban on lithium ion batteries in packages, my options to get the laptop that I wanted were running low. Fortunately, Amazon Prime came through for me. My laptop should be here by August 21st.

I hope that's true because I'll be away from home from tomorrow to the 18th. It'd be nice to have that waiting on me at work on Monday. I'll have my work laptop though, so I won't be completely disconnected. Let's hope that the hotel has good internet. happy.gif

LAPTOP IS HERE!! Or it came last week...anyway, one final hurdle. I had the data transferred from the dead one to the new one, but when I got home...no pictures. All of my lovely travel and event photos were AWOL. Naturally, I was extremely a tad concerned. I'm supposed to take both laptops back on Sunday to see what happened. Repairman probably thinks I'm some technophobe who can't find the picture folder, but they're really not there!

Will the photos be found?? Find out next time on Dragon Ball---oh wait.

And so the saga ends. He couldn't add everything because my old comp was a monster with 1 TB and the new travel laptop didn't have the space. So on my visit today, we put the whole old hard drive on an external source. It sounds like a hassle, but it'll be good for me and better ensure that I backup files more often.

Thanks for your patience!
