Ordered a motherboard, and if the other listing page will refresh, ordering a hundred of the tiny little screws that secure stuff in that computer and many others.
Also looking for some small anti-static zip-lock bags to finish organizing a whole bunch of tiny components, fasteners, and such.
You robs lay have those bags hidden somewhere.
I found some that were way, way too big, and still haven't found the smaller non-anti-static ones.
I just have regular bags.
Or it was coming from deep underground, maybe around 3.5 on the Richter scale. Evidently we are now having warms of small quakes here that are too faint for most people to feel. They think these are shallow quakes caused by stresses in the crust caused by oil and gas extraction, and fracking getting into some faults and acting like a lubricant causing them to slip.
But if the vibration is at the right frequency, it will cause resonance and thus apparent amplification at the surface.
After all, the whole west Coast area is part of the Ring of Fire.
Well, Seattle is entirely built on a geologically recent lahar flow, which all that is needed is a good sized quake to cause soil liquefaction and massive destruction.
Not sure about how seismically active the area around Portland is, but soil liquefaction is a huge problem in that whole region. That is what did so much damage in the 1989 earthquake in San Francisco, and before that, the 1906 earthquake.
