New computer, an IBM (wheee!)


On Saturday I got a computer from Annas brother Magnus. I
havent really decided to buy it yet, but till then its a
long-term loan. Its quite a good computer, here's its stats:
livecd root # cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor	: 0
vendor_id	: GenuineIntel
cpu family	: 15
model		: 1
model name	: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.80GHz
stepping	: 2
cpu MHz		: 1794.829
cache size	: 256 KB
physical id	: 0
siblings	: 1
fdiv_bug	: no
hlt_bug		: no
f00f_bug	: no
coma_bug	: no
fpu		: yes
fpu_exception	: yes
cpuid level	: 2
wp		: yes
flags		: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr
pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr 
sse sse2 ss ht tm
bogomips	: 3530.75
Hmm does ht mean hyperthreading? If so thats very cool. And heres the lspci:
livecd root # lspci

Im not really sure what to do with it yet, I think its going to become a new mediabox. But in that case I will need to buy a new chassis, since the one which came with the computer is a little too small for normal PCI cards like the Hauppage PVR 350, something I want to buy it. The chassis I was considering is here. Not sure tho. The important thing is that there is space for all the fun things I want to put in it! Oh and its going to be called wilbur.yanson.org, I couldnt think of another silly unusual Swedish name, so I had to make do with an English one. --
