I should be picking up a new toy for Syndia this afternoon. Her machine
has started behaving very strangely - lockups all the time - which
suggests either the board or CPU is failing. I think it's the board,
'cause it's an old AOpen AX6BC (slot 1) with a new-ish Celeron chip in
it. Very flaky.

The new toy will likely be a Duron 800-1200 or something similar. It
will at least be enough for her to watch movies on, so I can keep
working on my stuff rather than having to either bring the laptop home
or run TV-out from my machine
