Erm....do you mind if I borrow your cat.......my garden is a mess.

Buff; your cat can come in and garden any time it wants.

I recently tried Ubuntu on an old MSI build. It installed without problems, and I enjoyed using it for a day or two. Unfortunately, I began having problems. Sometimes it would not start up, and other times it locked up or threw weird code at me. I attributed the problem to the computer itself, as I was having unusual problems with the previous Windows installation (sometimes it would not start up, and other times it locked up or threw weird code at me).

I may be able to put a new system together (using old parts) sometime in the near future. I just have to come up with another power supply and a video card. Once I do, I'll again try the latest incarnation of Ubuntu.

Scuzzy can have Buff's cat; I don't care, I don't want it.  But there is no way you're getting one of my video cards or another power supply.  I'm not going to run this thing off house current, or that model train transformer.  Again.

If you want to canibalize something I'd suggest you start with yourself.  Try biting the hand that feeds you.

Ace; I assume it's the right one.
