down and out

comp crashed fairly hard last week. I'm rebuilding it from a Coding Horror article - a quiet, efficient pc is really needed. The power hogging gaming rig I've got right now is absurd. . . loud, hot, and probably heat dead.

Everything's here but the heat sink. I don't know how I did it, but I ordered it standard ground, while everything else was 2 day,

I just remembered I had a netbook upstairs, and that's what I'm writing this on. Keyboard's terrible , , , my old hands can't handle it for very long.
I also turned it into linux because it's faster and more sensible for a development/diagnostic machine.

This should be on tech.

I'll be back when the comp's up and running, probably next week.
I'll have stories, and not all about python or computer building!
Or baby stuff - but maybe one dumb navel gazing thing that ends up sitting in drafts and never gets published

Finally: The playstation 3 is a piece of shit media center that I must figure out a way to replace. More on this at a later time, but let's just say the upgrade process (and captive terms of service) are onerous and obnoxious.
