PC Irks

We have car-in-hand.

My PC was irksome yesterday. The sound went out. Maybe I should screw in the sound card? Yeah.

That's not all its problems.

I looked at replacing the motherboard. Not looking good. AM2 sockets are out of production. There's only one board that fits in my chassis, or maybe two.

The PC has been squirrelly its entire life. Is it time to end it and recycle what I can? Maybe. What to do with the old one is the question. Turn it into a quiet server? Maybe. I really have no idea. If I replace my Mac, I'll go with a docking station for the big monitor. 

Recycling materials is tough. The memory and CPU would also need replacing.

Really, I don't know what I would do. 

For now, I'll just keep things working.
