Dusting out the PC

I’m going to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop PC. I have the hard drive and the bootable USB drive (since I don’t have CD drive on this machine). The one last thing I wanted to do was give it a good dusting because things have gotten out of hand in there.

I also wanted an excuse to take a picture and see if I could get it on here without any problems. The WordPress workflow for adding/using pictures in posts is a bit weird, particularly since the buttons to add media are practically hidden.

My results were mixed. The canned air I had wasn’t strong enough to get a lot of it out.

Like a big dummy I left the new hard drive at the office, so I’ll have to wait to do the install until later. In the meantime I need to make sure I know where the special SATA ports for 6Gbit/s drives are on my motherboard.
