Good Smell / Bad Smell

Last night we made some chicken stew & dumplings (or doughboys, as my family calls them).  The smell filled the house.

As the stew was cooking I ran upstairs to grab something out of the office and ran headlong into the unmistakable smell of scorched electronics.  I started shutting down everything before an HCF opcode was executed and threw open the window.

This morning my PC won’t power up, and a quick sniffer test points to the PSU, which means a trip to TigerDirect.  I haven’t upgraded my PC in about 3 years, so my credit card may smell like my office tonight.
