Well, the board, box and PS are new but the drives are used, many are pulls but hey a WD 250G on sale for $19, yeah I got that. ps - the deal is still around! (Western Digital WD2500AAJS Caviar Blue 250GB 8MB 7200RPM 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive)

So now I'm running a 3.88G AMD 4-core at 3rd-wave price and the speed even at quiet/low power setting is just amazing

I need to get a SATA disk burner so I can make a 64-bit Ubuntu boot disk, it's running 32-bit now Ubuntu now. I see a reasonable LG supposed to ship 'locally', time to order.

Your sketch can sense ongoing process events in time.
Your sketch can make events to control it over time.

You can put the Ubuntu boot stuff on a USB and install from there.  Shouldn't need a burner.

Please do not PM with technical questions or comments.  Keep Arduino stuff out on the boards where it belongs.

Yeh, last I made an Ubuntu boot I had to boot from a CD to make the USB from the Ubunto ISO.
So I went and got Mint and that ISO went to flash, no disc needed.

It is good to be able to open the IDE while I have the forum open.
