Today I went all out and upgraded my computer - I changed out the motherboard, processor, and memory. In the process I found lots and lots of dust. Once everything was back together I reformatted the hard drive and loaded not Windows but Linux - Ububtu to be exact. I'm now running with a dual core processor and 8 gigs of ram. I have my email and web browser all up and running - with out losing an email or a bookmark. I still have another day of work to do on it as I finish loading up programs, etc.
