    Re: Obsolete Computers 'n Stuff.

    Sorry about the fuzzy picture, I'm still finding my way around photo editing tools on Ubuntu. The pic is of my old desktop, which I've had about 10 years - the BIOS is dated some time round 1996. It came with Win98SE, a 1Gb hard drive and 64Mb of RAM, and runs at 133MHz. I replaced the origial HDD with a 3Gb unit, and more recently pulled out the sound card and modem to give it USB and ethernet. It's currently got a CLI installation of Ubuntu 6.06. The monitor's a bit unreliable and doesn't always work. It's a bit slower than what I've gotten used to - it takes about 3 minutes to boot into a usable state, but at least it works!
