Half of the compartments have been broken through at the bottom. This means that no silverware can be placed in those compartments. What a pain. Because of the plastic construction all sharp knives must be placed point up, which is relatively unsafe.

Just the highlights.
I got this laptop for free from some friends (I repair their computers and they give me their old ones when they upgrade, which is ok). It was running a bit hot due to the wall of pet hair against the heatsink. I have passed it on to other friends to replace their old laptop. It was running XP with 512MB of ram, now it has 1GB and is running Xubuntu. This makes 4 machines I’ve transitioned friends to linux on.
I was intrigued by the header on the bottom of the middle board. It has inputs labeled for R,G,B and H and V sync which makes me think it’s a standard VGA input. If so I should be able to use it as a tiny PC monitor. I don’t know why I want to, but it’s there to be hacked. We’ll see.
