When did I last have the skins on my computer case? Hmmmm...
Moved cards around as part of an IRQ reassignment project.
Added a ATA/133 LBA48 Promise IDE controller card. The mobo already has a standard IDE controller plus an onboard HighPoint RAID IDE controller. I am about to flash my BIOS and update drivers for LBA48 on those two controllers.
Moving hard drives around to see the sequence that Linux finds them, and which positions support >137GB. This is part of a TiVo upgrade project.
Every now and then, I remove an ancient hard drive, or add a 200GB that I find laying around in a junk drawer.
I have a new mouse with various scrolling and forward/back buttons. I thought that it was a gimmick, but now I miss it on other computers.
Bought an IDE-to-USB 2.0 adaptor cable for running bare drives outside of the case. I may or may not add a hard-drive drawer.
One of these days I will install my dusty DVD burner.
I am trying to figure out why my audio inputs are not working. Fixing it may involve software or hardware.
I may try quieter fans. (I would love to build a silent case, but I am not a modder, nor am I up for that much work).
I haven't tried my Dazzle yet, but I have plans for it.
I am running Win2000 Pro. I have XP Pro, but I have delayed installing it because I am waiting till I stop changing my hardware around (hmmmm....). I don't want XP to continually think that I am trying to install it on a different computer (or is that just an MS Office issue?).
The truth is that I do not like spending time upgrading my computer. I just want a quiet computer that runs like greased lightning, and which does everything that I want it to.
In short, I do not plan to do any upgrades. It just happens.
