I visit and peruse this site frequently. I am beginning to feel deprived. Last year at this time, I didn't know a mobo from a kudu. Since that time, I have managed to completely replace my Fry's bundle with all sorts of technological wonders, from sound cards to disk-cloning programs. I even think I am clear on the mobo/kudu relationship. I ask, therefore, why have I NEVER received a BSOD? In the course of trashing some motherboards, I have become familiar with black screens, but no blue ones ! Could this be indicative of some supernatural gift? Am I blessed, or cursed? Most importantly, what could the future hold for one such as I? Please-- enlighten me.
