( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Actually, my Linux box is getting cantankerous in it's old age and in a typical case of "the shoemaker's children" I haven't gotten around to upgrading the OS on it. For that reason I have to reboot the damn thing every day which is done out of cron at noon.

On my shopping list for this old beast is:

  1. A new hard drive (old one is showing bad sector errors in /var/log/messages)
  2. More RAM. I have so much stuff running on there the poor beast is IO bound swapping stuff in and out as well as paging according to vmstat
  3. A new fan. The chassis fan has given up the ghost.
  4. A 17" LCD monitor since I'm still using that old CRT that I fished out of a trash can 5 years ago!

Someday the poor beasty is going to get replaced by a new machine that I build from scratch and demoted to being my workbench machine and relegated to being a diskless workstation. I just don't have the $$ to spend right now.
