My home computer is experiencing a motherboard failure. I’m going to have to replace it. The symptoms showed up as the sound card completely stopped functioning. Financially, I’m not a great place in regards to this happening now. Not to worry, I’m still moving forward, but a few things might get delayed a bit. I’ll have to work out where I am. I should have everything sorted out relatively quickly. In the meantime, I’m doing my research on the potential replacement for my main workstation. Thankfully, I do have other computers, so I’m not completely down and out, but they just do not have the capabilities to replace all the functionality of the main system.
