I'm writing this post from my beloved linux workstation... I think this may be one of the last few ever made from this machine :(
It's been awhile since this machine worked smoothly; it's now having problem just booting up & showing anything on the monitor. It could be the video card (earlier I thought it was the monitor I have at home—that was also dying!), it could be the AGP port on the motherboard... Whatever it is, I shall miss it when it finally dies.
