Scratch the complaining about the PC-To-Be. Not sure what exactly was wrong, but I ended up taking every last thing out, then putting it all back in and checking the power each step of the way. After several days, and a few other roadblocks, I was finally able to finish it off and get the case closed up. Jamaerah lives! And is a towering green mass hulking beside my desk! Just have to figure out where exactly J's going to live in my room, since I don't want to be tripping over the beast every time I turn around.

I'll get more in-depth in the trials and tribulations of my escapade later, but work calls, and I'm not quite bored enough at the moment.
