Well, aside from getting things partitioned for Linux and getting Linux reinstalled, my computer’s back to a working state. I’m gonna hold off on Linux for a bit here, because since I’ve already cracked my case I’m going to go ahead and upgrade my graphics card. This thing’s got a TNT2 Vanta in it already, but I wanna get something with a bit more glitz to it. I’ve never particularly cared much for 3-D gaming, but a couple of my friends are trying to talk…
