No More Unreal Tournament for me?

I went to play Unreal Tournament 2004 today, and it reset the computer during loading the first level. After three attempts, I tried to run Norton System Check, and the computer reset while it was checking. I think this computer hates me.

Anyway, while vacuuming all the dust out of the computer, I noticed that the IDE cable wasn't plugged into the back of the hard drive properly. I suspect that may be what the problem was, but who can tell?

I ran Norton System Check again and it worked all right, so I defragged both HD partitions. Dad forwarded the suggestion that the shop may have left a layer of grease or something when installing the heat sink, which explain why the CPU overheats when I leave the cover on. Not entirely sure. I find it suspicous that it would reset specifically when reading/writing on the HD.

Bloody thing.

Figures, really

I went to log in to my installation of Movable Type, only to get the error "Bad ObjectDriver config: Connection error: Too many connections". So I checked and the MySQL Database it uses is gone. W, as they say, TF?
