You just bought me a new computer!  Not an Avatar but
exactly like the Thinkserver I love and am using now.  It
did get hit by lightning and it fried the NIC so I'm using a
USB dongle to access the Internet.  I'll try to be more
careful with the new one and not plug it in during bad weather.

Used up aljmost all the gift card money.

That was a squeaker, it's $399.95 now.

Should have gotten two I guess but I didn't need the extra
and everyone I know would have tried to jew me down
anyway if I offered to sell one. Honey said "Go ahead! I
don't care." but I just got the one.

Had the unboxing, set it on the desk and booted to a Linux USB drive.
I'm running an old Mint, don't have an up to date one made right now,
going to have to do that one day..
I thought I'd run it awhile without bothering to put in a hard drive,
make sure it's going to run long enough to fool with.

It's going to be fine I'm sure. Silent as can be.

Got online with one of the four USB wireless dongles I bought a long
time ago. I doubt this old Linux Mint could find a NIC driver that would
work on this up to date Thinkserver. Going to run it a long time to make sure
it doesn't hiccup or anything. The price of this Thinkserver is $399.95 last
time I looked, on sale in their daily specials for $399.99 ha ha.

On sale again on one of their new sale sites for $229.99, 10 dollars more
than this one but has a $30 rebate offer. Guess I have all I need though.
I'll put in a hard drive after extensive testing.
