Made it through the day at work... just barely. Had been trying to cut down on doctored-up coffee (the only way I can drink it), but ended up drinking too much today because I was so tired, probably from having been sick. Now I am TIRED. Even taking a bath took a lot of effort. Just vegging now.

Computer-savvy people: lately the fan in my Lenovo ThinkPad R-series has been sounding strange sometimes. It does appear to be working, because I can feel air coming out and the computer itself doesn't feel too hot, but sometimes the fan gets really loud and sounds off-balance or something. Should I look into getting a replacement? Would rather not risk it going bad. Once the fan got clogged with cat hair and stopped working without my realizing it, and it did a number on the hard drive.

Worry about the fan now. It may just be getting unbalanced from particles, but it could very well be failing. You already know what that can do to the internals.

It's probably already "gone bad." Investigate now; it could possibly break many things.

When a fan starts making that sort of noise it's usually on its way out. It could be covered in dust and stuff, but usually it means it should be replaced. I didn't realize that many years ago and was happy when the noise stopped. Except that really meant the fan had died and then my hard drive got fried due to overheating.

So yeah...get the fan replaced!
