I do what I can

Random thoughts from Mauricio Teixeira…

Upgrade

with 2 comments

After a long time with my old Athlon 3000+, I decided it was time for an upgrade. After not-so-careful choosing, here’s what I got:

  • Motherboard ASUS M2N-X.
  • Processor Athlon64 X2 5000+.
  • Memory 2GB DDR2 800Mhz

Most of what I had before has been preserved, like hard drives, monitor, etc.

So no huge difference, except now I have dual core in the desktop (already have a dual core laptop) and I can do virtual machines at home.

Anyway, not going to bore you about how cool this machine is, how easy it was just to rebuild initrd, etc etc etc.

What matters now:

  • There is a new poll in my blog. Tell me what kind of computer you have.
  • The remainder parts of my old machine are for sale.

Let the fun begin.🙂

    Could be my hard disk, but it was faster on 32-bit.

    Do the following: Simply enable full memory test. If it does, update it.🙂
