This computer sits in my sister’s room, and generally refuses to do very much of anything… In the process of putting ubuntu on it to give it a new lease of life, I took the side off, and this is what greeted me!

Please Stand By

Please Stand By

In the early days of TV, if there was a problem with the broadcast, someone would hold a large card in front of the camera that would say something like "We are experiencing technical difficulties. Please Stand By" That is what I am doing today

The motherboard on my 5 year old home built computer went bad. I don’t have the money for another computer, so I have to replace the Motherboard. and of course, I have to upgrade the CPU, memory, video and power supply to work with a modern motherboard. And then, I’ll have to reinstall Windows.

It’s times like these I realize how much of a flickr addiction I have. In the mean time, I’ve had to dust off a 9 year old laptop to keep up with everything. I just hope I can get everything up and running before I run out of room on my camera’s memory card.
