The resurrection shuffle...

I'm currently in the process of going through the computer bits and pieces I have and working out how many working computers can be made out of them.

Currently it's looking like three: a Pentium MMX 233, a PII 133 and a Celeron 600. The green one is most likely getting the Celeron 600, and bodgirl gets her choice of the other two.

I also have a 486, but I'll most likely be keeping that to play old computer games on. :)

I also have a Celeron 900, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I plug everything in, press the power and nothing happens. I know the memory, hard drive and power supply are ok (I've run them on other machines) so it's most likely the motherboard or the CPU itself. Pity, I was hoping to be able to get both of the Celeron's to work and give one to each of them. I'll continue playing around and see if I can get it working.

All three machines will need CD-ROM drives (I've currently pulled one of the spares of mine out of the machine it was in so I can test these ones) but I'll probably get whoever is getting the machine to pay for new ones. A new basic CD-ROM drive is only $19 after all.

Once I get the two machines going to those two lovely ladies sorted, I'll then just have to work out what I'm doing with the one that bodgirl doesn't want, and then throw out all the bits that don't work. Currently that includes a power supply, two CD-ROM's and a hard disk.

Then it's putting my machines back together (my secondary machine is in the middle of an upgrade from a PIII 800 to a P41.5G) and cleaning up this mess. I want my dining room table back again! :)

Hello!

Bodgirl has decided she's going to spend her tax return when she gets it on a shiny new pooter. That means you are only making a present for me.

Any bits that work that are left over, I want to give to someone who wants to donate a computer to one of the boring rec rooms for hospital patients at PCH. He can to the painful putting together (good occupational therapy for him anyway.)

Thank you so much and sorry I'm part of the reason your dining room is fragged.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
