My computer is kaput
My homebuilt, dual-CPU 400MHz PII finally reached an unrecoverable state. It had served me well since 1998; well past the normal lifespan of your average desktop. I'm blogging through ChiyoChan's PC right now.
Needless to say, I will probably spend today and tomorrow (and perhaps even the day after) getting a usable system, reloading software and recovering old files. C'est la vie (de tech). I couldn't find any good deals on FatWallet.com so I'll have to shop at Costco instead.
