Yep.. the other morning it just failed to turn on - the voltage regulator on the mobo blew up.
So after thinking for a while I decided to borrow money and get myself a new machine that could last me another 4-6 years. This means that my beloved machine will be replaced by an AMD64 X2 4400+ (dualcore with 1 meg of cache per core) with 2 gigs of Corsair highperformant DDR400 ram all lovingly wrapped in a Shuttle case for size and noise optimization.
I can't wait for this to get delievered, I always wanted an SMP setup to play with - I wonder how fast this thing will compile glibc.
Why are you not using Fedora Core?
That's definitely a lot of great stuff...
In our family it's tradition to replace/improve parts one by one. Of course sometimes this demands a new motherboard for compatibility. My PC is scavenged from the folowing:
MSI Intel Motherboard with onboard Ethernet + C-Media sound
30 gb maxtor harddrive
1024 + 256 DDR (Kingston for the 1024 but not sure of the 256)
NVidia GeForce MMX 400 64 MB (bought from neighbor, just 15 Euros)
52x CD-R(W) burner, makes a lot of noise
Eat your l33t skillz!
