Off to break my computer

Since I’m getting nowhere fixing website problems, I’ve decided instead to finally sort out my computer. Based on the theory that it’s the X2 processor causing many problems, I’m downgrading to an old single-core model. This will hopefully let me use USB devices without everything crashing every few hours. I’ll lose a huge amount of power and speed, of course, but it’s the only option that doesn’t require new hardware. It does involve reinstalling Windows, though, and this procedure’s historical everything-going-to-plan:everything-going-tits-up ratio is about 3:2, so we’ll see…I think I’ll install Ubuntu Linux at the same time, just for fun. Wheee.

I may be back later, I may not. In the meantime here are some excellent fan people.
