Well, Goodie

For a while now, Di's computer, when you power it up, would do this funny thing. The power light would come on, but there would be a pause before the drives were checked and anything came on screen, and the thing would finally boot up. Some days, this might be 10 extra seconds, some days it might be a couple minutes or more. I've been wondering what the issue might be, and what I could do about it.

Seems the choice has been made for us.

As Di was on it, just now, it died. Just *POOF* it's not on anymore. And no amount of power button touching will revive it. Guess it was the power supply, huh? Well, she's been eye-balling this new HP machine, anyway, so I think we'll get it and transfer everything over to it, and then I'll see if I can maybe get the ol' Banshee up and running again. If so, then I get a file server, which would be useful.
