I've decided....

....that the next time I need to do work on 'box', that I'll get a new machine to replace it.

Even though all I need is a lowly PC to run Linux to serve DNS, DHCP, NTP, SSH and be a router and as bonus do ivs-status-sniff and BOINC for me.

The DNS/DHCP/NTP are core services to my home network (and since all my IVS traffic goes through it, that's also of fair importance).

As you might recall, when I experienced a boot failure on the old machine (a desktop GX100), I rushed over to eBay and bought a SFF GX110. Figuring it would be a minimal change, so migrating the Linux system would be minimal (the kind where I just transplant the drive and it works...I've done these before at work). And, it was cheap. Though it came with no HD or memory, though neither big points. Since I was planning to transplant the HD and I already had some DIMMs from a different GX110.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
