Now, why would anybody want to buy a 15" monitor? Because I've hooked it up to my ancient Sony Vaio desktop, a Celeron 266 with Windows 98 (first edition). I pumped up the RAM and installed a network card, and it's not a bad little machine. But it hadn't been used since 1998, so it had a TON of Windows Updates to install. But Windows Update didn't like IE 4.0, so I had to find the IE 6.0 upgrade first. I transfered the weather station software over to it, then spent an hour tearing my hair out because I couldn't establish a connection to the server. I finally discovered the problem: I'd configured the server to only accept NTLMv2 authentication, which Windows 98 can't handle. D'OH! Everything appears to be up and running properly. I'm hoping this machine will remain stable for a while.
While I was out, I got my car washed and waxed. Normally I do that myself in the garage, but my garage is kinda full right now, and it's too hot and sunny to try to wax outdoors.
I also stopped into Albertsons and found they have 30 medium eggs for 99 cents! I don't know if that's a local thing or chain wide, but that's a pretty darn good price!
