Fortnite Arena

I made it to division 6 after a little bit of play & then won a duos game with Bart.

I think he was happy but he sounded really tired. Bart doesn’t live in the United States so I am unsure even what time it was for him but this was around noon for me.

I also diagnosed a gaming computer for a guy, another situation where the pins were bent.

This is a common issue. People come in & tell me their machine won’t post after they’ve built it & then I find the pins are bent. Something this severe I won’t even try to fix. It’s possible, but just not something I want to do. These pins are a lot smaller than they appear in the photo & he’s going to return it & get another motherboard instead.

It’s important to make sure the CPU is installed correctly the first time or this is what will happen. I’ve seen this many times over the years. It used to be that people would bend the pins on the CPU, which, people still do with AMD chips. I fixed a chip for a kid earlier this year, fortunately for him. In fact, the machine was a pre-built & arrived with bent pins from the builder. I was able to bend them into place & the machine booted after that. As far as this one goes, I could have made an attempt, but it’s better if he replaces the motherboard & he was fine with doing that.

I also won this solo squad recently.

I was so disappointed in all my squad games with friends & had vowed not to get caught up playing pickups again, but, I did, & after a bunch of 2nd place finishes, I finally won this squad game, solo. It came down to a 2 v 1 & they both had hammers & crowns & I didn’t, but it worked out because I had a few builds, guns, & a jump trick for a headshot I did at the end.
