So how does someone with no apparently marketable skills go about emigrating?

I've been trying to help a friend with his PC. It hung while he was upgrading a firewall and now won't boot. The hardware all checks out normal, it'll boot to the utility partition and I've run a windows repair on it, none of which has made any difference. It's a Dell Dimension 9150 running XP Home,

Any ideas? Thanks.

I'm considering reboarding my PC - or, rather, I'm considering whether now is the time to reboard my PC. I think I'm fine about most of the components I'd need, but when it comes to graphics cards I know absolutely fuck nothing about anything that's happened since a nice fast SVGA was state-of-the-art.

I'm not desperately in need of a rocket-propelled games card. It's unlikely ever to come into contact with Billyware, so DirectX performance is a matter of supreme indifference (although feel free to mention it in case it's of interest to my other regular reader). Most of the time all I want is a flat 2000*1500 screen with the normal 24-bit colour depth under Debian, although I will want to use OpenGL now and again. Not needing its own three-phase supply would be nice.

Any notions?

Many thanks.
