I have an old desktop that has been in storage for a while. It's been replaced as a desktop with the one I bought in China, but I'd like to turn it into a file server.

Except, of course, it doesn't do SATA. No problem, I can buy a SATA card. Except, of course, they're all PCI-Express, and this motherboard is slightly too old for that. Lots of PCI slots, and AGP, but no PCI-E.

It's got a shitload of USB ports, though. So I guess I either grab some USB->SATA adaptors and some SATA drives, or I get a whole new computer. Still, I think it does DVI out, so maybe it will be repurposed for watching movies on.

Прекрасное Далеко

Слышу голос из Прекрасного Далека
Он зовет меня в прекрасные края
Слышу голос голос спрашивает строго
А сегодня что для завтра сделал я
