Computer Problems.again

on 7 August 2015 at 13:00:51 MDT

Computer issues again. I've had a UPS that I noticed crapped out on me a few months ago and didn't get the time or budget to replace it. This wouldn't be much of an issue, but the city here has a shitty power grid and brown outs are common, but moreso in the last few weeks. I've gone through 3 mini displayports to use my iMac as a second monitor, but they finally did it. They killed my mac's mini displayport today.

So I'm faced with a few options:

  1. Replace everything (new ups, new monitor) for more than I'm willing/able to pay for.
  2. Hopefully get a reasonable price for Geek Squad to fix the port, if that's even possible for them.
  3. Just buy a new UPS, the updated version of Synergy, and lose live, mirrored views of what I'm working on until a replacement monitor can be acquired.
  4. Sell the iMac, and hopefully get enough to cover the replacement equipment. I keep seeing listings of $800 for 27" 2009 iMacs, but I also see that nothing is selling anywhere, regardless of the price.

Anyone have helpful advice? Or distraction? I'm so tired of dealing with computer problems. Just let me work, goddamn.
