My main computer was not stupid before. But after Sandy, my power went off for almost a week. When the power returned, even though the house has a whole-house surge protector, and another in the APC Smart-UPS, when the computer came one, there was a rapid fire set of four bangs and a puff of smoke from the power supply. It even popped the 20A circuit breaker that runs only this computer.So it is not stupid, but totally brain damaged. I considered fixing it for a while, but it is 9 years old, and if I need a new mother board, ... .So I am ordering a new one instead. Many bux. I want to save the two 10,000 rpm SCSI hard drives, and the VXA-2 tape drive (where my backups are), etc. It will take about 2 weeks to get the new machine in here, and than I will have to get it all configured and ready to go again.What fun. 8-(
