I need to get some recycling stickers to move some of the old computers out of linguistics. Great masses of what I call junk is now out of the store-room and out of my hair.
The iMac that went down is now worse. The recovery partition is not functioning, nor is the network utility that allows for a net install of Mavericks. I'll try and track down an install CD on Tuesday. I will likely poach the RAM from this machine, which I suspect has a failing HDD for the HCMC machine that was to be my original Guinea Pig for my workstation image.
