It’s been in retirement for some time now, but I think its in terminal decline now 🙁

I dug it out to have a play with ubuntu (linux), the hinge had always been a bit funny but after it’d been on a couple of hours… with a very unhealthy sounding CD-rom drive, the hinge made a very nasty cracking noise as I folded it shut.

Pity. I really wanted to get my head into ubuntu/linux. Ah well, its not like I had any data left on it or really used it… still, was handy when I needed to send a fax last week!

Might have a go with a screwdriver n see if it has any legs left, although without a working drive, installing ubuntu could be fun!

On closer inspection, part of the hinge is broken… doh. cd-drive doesn’t seem to read at all either.

Rust In Piece old chum.

  1. Always sad to see technology pass away… do you plan to flush it down the toilet or bury it in your garden ?
