Hello, I'm Paul. I am a devoted Linux user, Ruby programmer, Open Source software developer, photography hobbyist, and a world traveller. My wife Eugenia and I originate from a place in Russian Siberia. Today we live at the very South of Canada.
We’ve got a new player in our team. It’s a Shuttle SB81P mini computer, silent and powerful. Almost as little as Eugenia’s Shuttle SS59G we have bought last August. Mine is black and its glossy front panel with matte silver elements perfectly matches exterior of ViewSonic VX2235wm LCD monitor. Now I’m looking for a black stylish keyboard to complete the orchestra =)
The new computer has Intel P4 3GHz CPU (Prescott) with Hyper Threading technology and is almost twice more powerful than my previous AMD Athlon XP based system. I’ve installed Gentoo Linux with custom kernel compiled to support only existing hardware and now it runs lightning fast.
If you are going to upgrade your PC visit Shuttle web site. I bet you’ll like what you see.
