Death of an old computer and life with Linux
Sadly, the old computer died this morning. I am pretty sure that it is the power supply and that I could repair it. However, I don't believe that the old computer, a mini-tower, is worth the price of a new power supply. At a certain point, you just gotta let it go.
These days, I am using a computer that I call Frankenstein. The name is due to the fact that I have cobbled it together from other computers. Frankenstein is located in the Florida-room/family-room and runs Manjaro Linux. I am really loving Manjaro, it is a fabulous system.
Expect to see me talk about Manjaro and Arch in the future. My successes, failures, and royal screw-ups, will all be a part of what I call "Living with Linux".
