The topic: The camera computer is dying


I have to keep rebooting every few days. The weather station software keeps freezing the computer and if I don't check it, the cameras don't work when I start them up in the morning and the weather info online isn't updating. I noticed today it quit working after 2:15 am. 

I did a check on eBay this morning, there are some better Win XP computers than what I have available for under two hundred bucks. I don't need anything big, but I would like more RAM than the the camera computer has (which I think is the problem). I've already maxed out what it is capable of. So, Brian said a few more sales and I can get one. It's not for surfing or anything other than the cameras and weather station, so a huge hard drive isn't necessary. And I have to be able to add more cards to it (I need a serial port for the remote control on the backyard camera). 

Yeah, that sounds like way more fun than paperwork. Which has gotten easier since I turned on Pandora on the Roku. That's involving the part of my mind that kept telling me how much it finds paperwork boring, so I can stay more focused.
