(Cue Shatner Voice)
It was a Tuesday.
October 25. 2016.
I was running late, that day.
A late night toiling away on my personal projects, my loyal machine plugging away, my sleeping hours vanished.
Rushing out the door to get to work on time, I turned back to grab my forgotten keys on my desk.
In the darkness of my room, I made a fatal mistake.
The keys. The glass of water. So close. Too close.
The fateful grab. The spill.
The sizzle and zap.
With a pop, my desktop monitors went black, I rushed to turn it off before more damage was done.
My body, cold, I ripped the cords out and threw her on the bed, tried to save her.
The water was, everywhere. No part was left untouched. I did my best to save her. I unscrewed it all. The heatsinks, capacitors, used isopropyl alcohol to clean her. I tried everything.
But she was gone.
To be continued.
