New Computer - Gateway GT5636E Core 2 Quad

Core 2 Quad Q6600(2.40GHz) goodness with 2GB of RAM for <$750....has arrived! &#58;&#33;&#58;

Don't know what I'm going to do with it yet...wonder if I should turn it on? Not planning to leave the Vista Home Premium that it came preinstalled with. It'll either be some distro of Linux, I'm thinking of trying Ubuntu Server 7.10....or Solaris (either the Solaris 10 8/07 release or one of the OpenSolaris Express Editions.)

Guess I'll see whether I can resurrect the old Linux box first....will decide if I need to build a machine to read the old drives or not.

Meanwhile it looks like my WiRNS box has eaten itself.....had to quickly reconfigure my network (both gateway routers) and DHCP....and make the ReplayTVs talk directly to DNNA. As soon as I find the old install disc, I'll try repairing the OS. Otherwise, I may have to look into stepping up my Windows upgrade plans. Or make that switch to Mac.

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.
