No, like, actually exploded!
While I was writing that last entry there, Andres' computer exploded.

I do use that word metaphorically a lot, to indicate "ceased working in a sudden and impressive manner", but here I actually mean exploded.

There was a loud POP!

The screen went dark.

There was an odor of burnt.

And a lack of functioning.

He thinks the warranty expired... yesterday. We suspect the power supply.

I've had that happen before. It was in high school and we were writing programs. Testing out the program, it said on the screen "hit any key to continue" and when we hit the key, there was a loud pop, the screen went blank and there was the smell of burn stuff.

Scared the heck of out everyone in the room.

Ooh. Good timing on that one. :)
