New Computing Set-Up

Well, I've started to come out of hibernation at last, due to the indifferent weather and everyone having a bad cold last week. I finally got around to gutting 4 old PCs and taking the carcasses to the dump, cases for recycling really, and then I upgraded the workshop PC to 2gb of RAM and added a second 160 GB hard drive. Not state-of-the-art, but I was able to install Linux Mint 15 so I can browse the web and do Arduino and PIC stuff again.  I treated myself to this Fujitsu Android tablet from Lidl of all places and with a 99p stand, a USB keyboard and the 'On-The-Go (OTG)' adaptor I bought for my 'phone I have myself a cheap transformer computer.
