Hardware


So my laptop died the other day and I had to replace the hard drive with a new one.  I opted for a solid state drive and after I installed the drive and reinstalled the operating system I was doing my usual “Things to do after installing Xubu 16.04 LTS” when I noticed a caveat regarding solid state drives.  It was a warning that solid state drives need a few extra tweaks to make it work well and long.  So I have yet to do the tweaks because​, well, I haven’t done this before and my natural inclination is to read about it five times and then do it around midnight.  

So I am obsessing over the fine tuning, and since it is spring Mrs. Keachfan wants me to remove non-working hardware.  Which everything in my little hacker heart screams no.  So I will be busy this week and still try to get a few thing written.

Hardware


Well my router has gone the way of all electronics and died the death of all hardware.  So until I get my new one on Monday (hopefully) and get all my security redone not much posting will be happening.
