New fan got ordered yesterday. It shipped today. With any luck it'll arrive tomorrow. If not, it should be here Thursday. The impressions piece on Persona 3 FES is delayed until the main system is up and running. Until that happens, my desktop is basically the most expensive paperweight I own.
Update: No joy today, the fan is still en route. Hopefully tomorrow then. On the plus side, my signed "10 Years of UserFriendly.org" book did arrive today with a nifty T-shirt as an added bonus. Thank you J.D, not just for the book, but for 10+ years of laughs, in the comic and outside it.
