We got some really sad news today, a death in the ds106 family.
Motherboard is dead. What am I supposed to do for #ds106 this week!?

Yes, a computer has died. While Fairuz is in mourning (or shopping), let’s deal with it in the ds106 way — and make some art! Hence a new design assignment, A Memorial For Fairuzâ€™s PC:
Fairuz is a UMW student for the Spring 2013 ds106 class, and suffered a catastrophic loss of her PC. We should honor its memory by designing something as a memorial- a funeral announcement, an animated GIF headstone, a floral wreath of RAM chips. REMEMBER THE PC!
I made up a bit of graveyard commentary:
It must have been ds106’s fault! It is the Raven! The weight of all that media, the taxing of the CPU by the strain of animated GIFs, what kind of machine can take this kind of stress and live!
Let’s bow our heads for a moment of silence…
and go make some art now!
