Decided to create a statistics page on system running status. The program Motherboard Monitor
(no longer updated) logs information into a CSV file. We use to just display the averages and current data, but I wanted graphs. So, here they are
. I started last night at about 1:00am while sitting at my coffee shop. It's been awhile since I've written anything at coffee, so I'm happy about this.
I ordered new RAM today for the Indigo Dragon. This RAM has a heat-sink and hopefully will fair better in the small case. I think heat must have killed the last RAM, since the computer will no longer run for more then 30 minutes before getting a kernel panic and halting. It ran much longer then that prior to the last crash, so I think it has to be something that failed-- like RAM. The new RAM will go into the system as soon as it arrives. But the old RAM will be went back for warranty repair/replacement. I just didn't want to wait for repair-- you get new orders much faster then repairs.
Still no heat in the house, but it's in the 50ies outside and we don't really need it. The Dragon's Den is sitting pretty at 69.4 degrees. However, having heat will be a good thing, so we are still looking forward to having it fixed.
Tonight was sushi night, and pictured is Tyson looking anxiously at our sushi platter.
