R.I.P., Studio computer -- 2003-2009.
The recording computer is officially dead. It seems I took her home too late -- the string of devastatingly cold nights in early December caused the liquid cooling system to rupture, which fried the motherboard the last time we tried to start her up. I'm assuming, however, that her important parts are still fine; namely, the audio interface (Layla 3G) and the hard drives containing my customized OS and many hundreds of hours of recording work. So, the search (and saving) begins for her successor, who will most certainly NOT be liquid cooled.
She served us well, may she rest in peace.
