RIP Lappy m’ old chum
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.
