Computer happenings

I see that I have not posted for a while.

I was travelling.  The first thing I did on return, was power up my desktop computer.  It didn’t power up.  It looks like a failure in the power supply.  The computer was almost 5 years old, and has been a bit of a lemon all along, so no tears lost on it.  I won’t be trying to repair it.

I purchased my UEFI box as a planned replacement for the system that failed.  So the UEFI box is now my regular desktop, rather than just a test machine.  I learned a few minor things during the transition, so I will post separately on those.
