Upgraded an old k2-500 with 192 meg of ram to Debian Squeeze and installed lxde, so I did not have to use gnome. One really down was it did not support my wireless nic out of the box so to speak. There goes my honeypot. Had a usb nic and it worked fine after downloading and installing the firmware.

Looks like I have a bunch of wireless cards that are useless now. I have not taken time to recompile the code so maybe all is not lost.

Bought this old karaoke amp from good will for 5 bucks a while back Bought some rca male ends to adapt the wires from the speakers. Need to check the required impedance though for both. Will make an interesting computer speaker system if it all falls together. A backup practice guitar amp at the least.

Cut the wire from a joystick I never used so I can make a joystick port breakout cable. There are some real opportunities with the joystick port. 4 dacs and 4 digital inputs. That could lead to some fun.

Found a spare isa printer port card. I plan to use that in an old P3 robot I am working on.

Not that the new linux sound system is allegedly working right. I would like to have a system with 4 sound cards and see what mischief can be had.

Time to do some Honey-dos....
