AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

There's "quiet" and there's "are you sure this thing is ON????"

New power supply for main comp arrived and now installed (after a few teething troubles.) *Very* overpacked considering the only thing you'll ever do with it is remove from box+packing+bag+cover+morepacking and install it, but I suppose they have to make it look a little 'special' considering the price. But it is QUIET! sorry … that should be quiet, in fact the PSU fan doesn't even come on in normal use aka so far. And although there is a CPU cooler (liquid) alongside a couple of front fans it is still very quiet indeed.

So, pleased. Guess I should start thinking about having some breakfast …
