More hardware

When it rains it pours. My server (which runs this website, hosts my email, net gateway, etc.) has been making a funny noise the last few days. It seems to be coming from the CPU fan. Normally when this happens a cable has drifted into the path of the fan: easily fixed. Not this time. New fan ordered from PC Power and Cooling – it’s actually not drop-down easy to find a fan for a Slot 1 (SECC) P3 anymore.

I also ordered a new motherboard, CPU, memory, hard drive, and Windows XP from newegg on the recommendation of Jeremy, who knows his stuff.
