Well, I just did this one.

I have Ubuntu 9.04 installed on my computer. I had just finished downloading 9.10 to update.
Well, my parents had just called me down to bed. So I went.
Well, I forgot to tell them about it.

* * *

I tried to boot it up this morning, when it refused to boot up. Even the recovery boot-up didn't work! oops

Well, thankfully, I didn't install much on that computer. And now I have a perfectly good reason to get a 9.10 disc!

I avoided most of those mistakes, only screw up i did was i put a new graphic card into my PC and it would not work, i thought it was not compatible or something. Needless to say 2 hours later after i checked half the damn stuff in the PC i realized i forgot to hook up the power line to the Graphic card lol worked fine after it was a miracle.

(damn gremlins playing in my pc all the time)...

Once I was putting in a CPU and bent all or most of the pins. Forgot how, it was some time ago. Bummer.

Just pulled an embarrasing stunt this past weekend (hence my absence for the last week). Do NOT put DDR3 1600 XMP RAM in a boar that only supports one stick of that per channel. I filled all six and wiped out an i7 960 in a big hurry.

as in overvolting the CPU and giving it a full load will kill it quickly? Nice one fuss...
