A Full Day

Today started by getting peed on by this guy:


and continued in the usual sort of the way…that is until I completed this project:


This is a 2003 model IBM Thinkpad that was running Windows XP (although it wouldn’t boot up) and had a broken wireless system.  It was virtually worthless until I loaded a copy of Xubuntu 12 and turned it into a reliable Unix-based machine and slapped an old Netgear wireless card into it.  Now, it not only runs, but this previously worthless laptop will now do just about everything that a brand new Chromebook will do, plus it works just fine without internet connectivity.

Complete redemption from being peed on in the morning.
