The Netbook still kicking

A little proof that you can still get some work done while listening to music and surfing the web with Trisquel 7 and 2GB of ram in a 7 year old Toshiba NB505 netbook in 2017.

Tonight I ssh’d into my Linux web server zipped up my WordPress wp-content folder and backed up the database. I then downloaded the backups via wget. 🙂

Trisquel 7 still chugging along

Just performed updates to this seven year old netbook and still impressed the amount of work that is possible with an archaic piece of netbook hardware. It was worthless as a Windows PC when my father picked it up new at Costco. However, as soon as he abandoned this thing to a closet I dropped in a new battery and it’s been my third string system.

I’ve ran Xubuntu, Manjaro and Peppermint OS on this system eventually sticking to Trisquel 7 so I would have a free software system in the house. To get wifi working I use a USB dongle from Think Penguin.
