Fixing an old computer a friend gave me!
October 1, 2016 3:17pm CST
Well not really fixing, just installing Linux on it. I should be able to have it up and running once I get this installed on the system I really hope this works. Because I want to be able to use it. It has a huge screen, and it will run video games, my work stuff of course etc. It's a mac so it will be a good computer for me! it's a big desktop. Right now I am on my laptop, because my other desktop has gotten to loud. I often post from my phone. But I am charging it. So I am downloading the OS sytem to install on the old PC. and then I am here working on mylot in the mean time. I am hungry time for a late breakfast.

I gave a old PC I can probably run Linux on if I can get it to turn on lol. I would like to put puppy arcade Linux on it. and run old games. Since it's an old system it might be able to run the old games. Or if I can use a windows 98 VM I can finally run the old Vectrex games I love. It's sad only Apple sells the Vectrex games. I can't get them for droid. So I am quite sad about that. Even though those are only worth playing with a tablet and arcade pad hooked up.

Linux or rather Ubuntu in my case has saved hardware for me many a time. I have the disks. I have never managed to download the OS for myself so I bought them. I don't ever want to go back to Microsoft. I have an iMac that I keep wondering about trying to use. It still has MacOs 9 , but I doubt it would work with wireless.
