motherboard

Sorry for the delay in getting started today. I got up this morning and my work machine was not going to work no more.

So, I had to swap out that motherboard. I don't get in no hurry when doing stuff like this.

But I'm back up now and will update the site as soon as I can.

Part 2:

Oh man, when I first tried to start the new rebuild it didn't fire right up. I though "oh no, it's doa." Visions of RMAs, shipping hassles, and "what to do now for a machine until replacement gets here?" danced in my head. But I moved the power toggle back and forth and depressed the start button for several seconds and it fired up. I guess it has one of those 3 second for full power deals enabled.

But boy oh boy, things are quite snappy now. I guess I been having trouble with the old motherboard longer than I was actually aware.
