Back in Business

Long story short: My old Dell is finally crapping out on me after 7 years. No shame, really. But it's become excruciatingly slow, and the past three weeks it's been just unbearable. So I've been slowly porting things over to a new machine, and tonight I made the big move. I'm up and running on the new Dell. MUCH faster. Good stuff. More work done. Yay.

Did you try switching it off an on again?

Yeah, and I whacked it on the side a couple of times, too. No dice. Damn the movies, anyway!

hope you find a good place to recycle it...

Any suggestions on what to do with it? I'm thinking about ways to use it here, but if there's a place to put it out of its misery...

How about a contest where the winner gets to drink a beer and smash the thing. All proceeds go to some non profit. I know I would buy a ticket for that.

That's not a bad idea, Dan, but I'm figuring on keeping the monitor. If someone's got a dog-ass monitor to throw in...I can see this as a fund-raiser, yeah.

Lew,

Did you try getting a Mac? :)

At this point in my life? Not likely!
