So my parents are selling their house and moving out to their island home. They’ve got an old Dell computer that they’ve been using for a long time to check their e-mails, surf the web, etc etc etc… but it’s showing it’s signs of age. PIII 700MHz, 128MB RAM… you get the idea.
So… they bought a Dell I6400. Boy is this thing fast… If only I had been able to wait a couple of months before buying my computer… Anyways – that’s what I’m working on right now – formatting it and installing all the software that they need.
In exchange for my “hard” work… I get their old desktop. It’s an Athlon 1GHz, with 512MB of RAM, but it’ll be a good fileserver and test box. The damn thing has been going strong for 6 years now…
I’m also getting a bunch of old furniture from here. A couch, TV, couple of chests of drawers, simple stuff, but it’ll make my place a lot more comfortable.
So yeah… I’m just chillin… waiting for tomorrow.
