I'll get to fixing it today.

    'Mornin' Bret and everyone.. Well, buying an off the shelf system would have been easier, but putting one together is easy for anyone who's not afraid to pick up a Phillips and has some advantages:
    -saves me a few bucks
    -when the machine gets old, I can upgrade on the cheap (try a major upgrade with a Mac lol)
    -gets me EXACTLY what I need - no more, no less.
    Bonus points: allows to avoid paying the Windows tax (paying for an operating system that I don't use). A few years back, I bought a laptop that came with Vista and ended up running Linux on it. Got all the benefits of Mac but I can run it on any hardware that I want and can tweak it to fit my use.

    By the way, fixing the cooling worked.. During the torture test, it was running 20 degrees cooler.. Needed a bit of work with side cutters and foil tape to make it happen though

    There's no such thing as a major upgrade of a PC.....the technology ALWAYS leaves the 'left in' product as the achilles heel of the unit, not to mention the MTBF has these old products nearing EOL. I've got three old macbooks around the house.....in various spots to allow me access to files (as you know they automatically network together) and email/internet. They are still upgrading through Apple and other than HD upgrades to handle the files, they are all working. I am waiting for the MBAir with 15" screen and 700GB SSHD and then we'll have a screamer.

    went down for the count at church Sunday That freak a few people out. I think what freak them out more is how Andy an Andy were no don't need to get one of the Doctors and responded. One person said wow you guys a common and handle like it's a daily thing. Andy looked her and said at every daily but your close.

    I found the look on her face fun.
