Because my old Windows XP box died on me this past weekend.
Well, sort of. I mean, it seems obvious to me the hard drive is failing, and since as a whole the thing hasn't been of much use for some time now, I see no reason into keeping it alive anymore.
Going to try and sell the 21" CRT, it's in good condition.
And I wonder if anybody out there needs a GeForce 5200 for their AGP slot. Maybe it can find a new home.
512 MB of RAM, 1.0 GHz AMD Athlon Thunderbird processor. Off to the recycling center.
It had a good run...
