Well, I did get some work done, 6 jobs in fact, before the rain came but I wanted to see if I could get some more done. I will be very busy tomorrow, with much larger jobs to do. I will have the zero turn for at least 3 of the ones I have planned, but it will be wet.
I took home a Dell XPS desktop that someone was throwing away today. It is a Pentium 4 running at 3.4GHZ, 1GB of DDR RAM, and does turn on. The issue is the network card was working earlier but seems to be bad now, and the Ubuntu installer keeps crashing.
