i am considering memory upgrade.

if some funds that i am hoping for come in next month, i am considering
a new multi core tower and a new laptop.

if good fortune hits, this lt will become an emergency access terminal
to new desktop. old desktop will be converted to a zoneminder server
for ip cams.

i do have other more pressing obligations that must be taken care of
first. what is left will go for my toys.

7-x86_64 has finished downloading. that means i am out of here for a
new install. back later to let you know how it went.

again, greatly appreciate your advice and help. i thank you.


peace out.

CentOS GNU/Linux 6.8
