My old Dell Pentium IV machine with Windows XP installed has been idle
since I bought a new PC with Windows 7. To provide me with a backup in
case of PC problems, my son converted the old machine to operate on
Ubuntu, which can be used successfully on the internet. This photo
shows him finishing up the task.
The machine rests on a surplus government typist's desk from the 1930s,
whose drawers show obvious signs of being made with hand tools. It
occurred to me that the workers that built it would never have dreamed
of the technology now adorning the old desk.
