I am sad to report that my favourite computer has met an untimely demise.  Cupid, a red Toshiba NB305, overheated when the cooling fan stopped working.   smiley-cry

That's sad, I lost one once and am still getting over it  smiley-cry

I've decided not to get to close to them in future, and certainly not to give them names.

I have to name them.  Everyone of them has (had) a personality.  Zygomorphic, Evil Pig, Dilapidated Puba, Obstinate, ... huh ...  I just realized Obstinate still runs.  Man that thing is annoying.  Poor Cupid doesn't make it two years and Obstinate still runs after ... uh ... many years.  I wonder if there is a life-lesson in that?

I recently "retired" the S100 system I built in the mid 1990's. I used it to control a model train setup. The DSDD 8 1/2 inch drive finally died. I gave it to a friend who likes to tinker with obsolete electronics. It never had a name!

Ahhh S100, those were the days smiley

Such a shame everything is inside the chips these days and there's little need for a bus of that type.
