These systems are Pentium III which I found is the best all rounder for anything from windows 3.x right up to windows XP.
The hardware in them is practically the same, bar the Tower which is a Dual processor. but the board is of the same model practically. Ease of drivers Thumbs Up
Everything is done by the server, installation wise. Very Happy

Nothing to do with the Lock Down, however if I do get 5 minutes I will be working on the full restoration of these two Honda XR600R's one is 1993 the other is 1998. A lot of the fixings are no longer available so I purchased a zinc plating kit to re plate bolts etc.
I have stripped cleaned and repaired every item.

Scotland 2015 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 USW Galway Green

Made a start on my Ducati ST4s engine transplant into my old 888. Bit of a delayed start, the bikes came to our present house on a trailer 10 years ago, always getting put on the back burner...

Ordered a new starter clutch from Moto Rapido on Friday afternoon, arrived at my house Tuesday lunchtime, having come via Italy. Astounding. Current Steeds:
2015 110 UW in Grasmere Green
2003 BMW F650 the Hack
2000 Elise
1992 Ducati 888 (still in bits but soon to be st4s powered)

Great stiff there Don, I have just rebooted my piano playing again, I would love a couple of other synths and keyboards, but its the space! But you are lucky Guitars don't take that much space as a keyboard rig does Laughing
Mind saying that I have been looking at another stand, so I can do away with the two double x stands and have one. Going to cost nearly £300 though! Shocked Defender TD5 90 ---/--- Peugeot 306 HDI hatch back
