Reasons not to upgrade your monitor

In the corner of my home office sits Snowbooks' server. Like all right-thinking computers, it has a name, and its name is Serenity after the ship in Joss Whedon's superb Firefly series. Since we have to do stuff to the server only rarely*, we don't really need it to have a monitor, but it's so handy to have a little one plugged in the whole time. We use an old, small, useless monitor for this purpose, and it does the job fine. However, it also serves (heh) a far more important purpose: big cat warmer. serenity.jpg *Rob's comment: Or rather we log in remotely. Without getting off the sofa.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
