A while back we inherited some random computer parts that gave some promise of actually working. I was no stranger to the inside of a computer, but I surely learned a lot by salvaging these old machines. OK, so "steam-powered" is a bit of an exaggeration- maybe "Soviet-era" is more suitable. They are cranky and slow- every day they still work I am amazed- but they get the job done! They are the most popular service of the library, used constantly by our patrons.
So this week I spent a few hours coaxing them along (TG for Windows SteadyState!). Just the usual- run Windows Updates, fix a busted profile, all mysterious little things that are part of the techie's world. It is a privilege and honor to use my modest talents for such a good cause. Related Link
