mini me + poo

Malcolm update

He went to the doctor's a couple of days before he died, and it seems that whatever happened then is enough for there not to be an autopsy.

His funeral is in Liverpool, his home for many years, on the afternoon of Friday 3rd September. Sadly, we won't be able to make it, but flowers are welcome. If you'd like more info, let me know.

I'm not expecting anyone to want this

But there's a spare Evesham PC here - Cyrix 500 MHz, about 192M RAM, 30G hard drive, about ten years old. What's saved it so long is that the case is small and it's been used with Debian to test things before doing them to my online server. It currently has PuppyLinux on - this loads everything into RAM so it runs reasonably even on aged hardware like this.
