    Accidents happen but you've escaped relatively unharmed. Your on a computer now you you have the basic skill's needed to score alot of jobs. You'll make it.

    Take it from some1 who had 3 car accidents (only one was my fault), that you should be happy you are ok.
    Whole cars can be replaced, new jobs can be found and problems can be fixed...but you only have one head on your shoulders and only one life so don't waste it!

    .........just an opinion.........It will get better...it usualy does!

    Good luck!

    The car yes but I am not on the policy, the car was totaled out already and I know I won't get a dime for it, but will they cover the guy I hit. I don't know.

    yeah it'd be tragic if he was illuminated by a street lamp lol

    and life can get a whole lot worse at least you have your health and a roof over your head
    people complain about the little things in life at least you have the means to tide you over til you get another job some people dont even have the opportunities to even get a job

    funny how you should say that.

    It just got even worse, now my graphic card is on the fritz.

    I was playing guild wars and I just got artifacts all over the place then the system froze, rebooted more artifacts all over bios screen.

    I shut the pc down for a while pulled the card cleaned not that it needed but to make sure. Also I examined it throughly no burns, heat sink looks ok. I am now afraid to play games.
    all speeds are stock no OCing.
