I've decided....

I've decided....

So, now I was faced with moving everything back to the old GX100 and hoping that would just work. I started thinking if there was anything I could pull from the GX110 to help the GX100 situation. I was getting ready to move the CPU, when I remembered that the GX100 is only 66/100, so a 133 CPU wasn't going to do much good. So, I looked at swiping the heatsink...or at least the fan, because the connector doesn't hold anymore. Well, I test fitted the new heatsink fan plug and found that it is the mobo side of the connector that isn't locking anymore, so switching wouldn't have helped...so I choose not to bother.

The GX100 booted first try, so things seem good for the moment. But, I'll probably save up to buy a cheap, but good new PC...perhaps one of those $400 Dell PCs (which might be cheaper by the time I get around to buying it, eh?)

Meanwhile, I was planning to upgrade a ReplayTV 5160 to a 5250...but I've decided I don't feel like doing that now. And, I wasn't really pressed for space...and originally I wanted to do a 5300, but the drive I ordered from Outpost on Wednesday and paid extra for 2 day service didn't arrive (not even on Saturday, which their site says Airborne would delivery on) AFAICT, they haven't even shipped it yet. :##

I guess I'll stick to working on my other PC upgrades using the drives I acquire. Perhaps after some move, I'll consider having a DVArchive server in the living room so streaming back won't be so painful. (though the pain is because it is WiFi, and a portion of that unreliable bandwidth is being consumed by IVS traffic...if I stop IVS, I've had no issues in streaming back...) &#59;D

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.
