Finally got around to piecing together the various spare parts I have lying around here, and resurrecting the Duron. With 256Mb of RAM and a 20Gb drive I got ridiculously cheaply on eBay, it makes a reasonably good machine.
Kicked off an ftp install of SuSE which didn't seem to work well. Eventually put Fedora Core 1 on to get things working. Seems fine.
Need to decide what to do with it...
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
