Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
I’ve been doing the dad sponsored computer changes for the last few days and (new laptop if it comes aside) I’m nearly there now. The main job was the living room PC which performs a number of tasks. The old one was quite a bit newer than I remembered but (in spite of me being able to keep it up for 200+ days) it did have a problem with the system hard disk and has needed attention for a long while. I built a new PC for there and transferred bit at a time from the old one.

I’m now back in a reasonably good position, I hope. I can discard the oldest PC and the old living room one can serve as the spare.

One thing yet to do is the satellite tuner for mythtv. After another fight to compile the tbs drivers, I decided against installing the pcie card in the new build. I’ve instead opted for an external vbox which is reported to work well with myth. It’s on its way from the Czech Republic and I hope to get it next week.

Not much else happened here lately except the 3 of us had both Covid boosters and flu jabs this morning.
