Did some upgrades/maintenance to the Linux box tonight:
- added a DVD±RW drive
- finally fitted the cheapo Zalman fan controller to take the edge off the CPU fan noise
- got X11 working with the nVidia graphics card again, under 2.6.14. It was fiddly.
Some people might wonder why I keep maintaining a 3½ year-old Athlon XP1800+. It works, and with the amount of RAM I have in it, it’s plenty fast.
