Looking at my old web server hardware docs to see what upgrades it might take. Lo and behold, a slot 1 pIII cpu could be a replacement for the old slot 1 pII cpu. Grabbed the parts bin and whoopie there was not only a pIII, but faster than what I already had. Did the swap and now the web server is so much peppier. That was so successful, we upgraded another machine with good results.

As for the web server, we restalled it from scratch. Installing the web based apps is generally easy....

Sometimes I get the sense that with the price of drives of going up, there is no incentive to retool and produce more drives. There is less cost from having less factories and with more profit per drive becase of demand, therefore there is a doubly wider profit margin. With people addicted to having to have media warehouses to put it nicely, makes the hard drive manufacturers even more greedy....

Hunt the Wumpus.
There are several types of games, but lately adventure games seem to be coming back. The original adventures just required a keyboard. No fancy joysticks and or sound cards to deal with. What is really nice about them is that you can use the same source code more or less on a variety of systems. Sometimes that is known as code portability.
