English doesn't just borrow from other languages, it follows them down dark alleys, smashes them over the head and roots around in their pockets for loose vocabulary.

I second that. We can always use more articles like this.

A well written article, with good pictures. But what strikes me is that it is very well thought out which makes it really fun to read. GOOD JOB!

Thanks for sharing and writing that up Linda! I can point some of my chicken friends to it!

Were you going to put the cpu duct back on? (It's in your pile of left over parts...)

She says in the article that the instructions said she didn't have to use it, so she didn't.

Linda, what operating system are you running on it, and will you do a tutorial on how you got it installed?

Great review Linda Big Smile

Wow, how exciting to see something I wrote posted on LWD! What a thrill! Thanks for all of the kind words, too!

Rahhstah, no I'm not putting it in. At least, not unless I get a new higher-powered video card. Besides, I don't know how it would fit; there are so many wires. I'm happy with it the way it is.

Edison, it's got WinXP and Ubuntu and Kororaa and Suse. And hopefully Slackware soon! Sure, i could do a tutorial on installing Winxp, but I don't know how useful that'd be. I just wiped my partition, booted, and reinstalled.
