      Completed all the tasks I can for now. I await the memory modules which have been shipped from China. Removed the 160GB HDD and replaced it with a 240 GB SSD. Replaced Pentium Dual Core E2160 with Core 2 Duo E8400. Cleaned and renewed thermal paste. Installed Linux Mint 20. Really could use more memory, but so far the difference is dramatic. It's almost a usable machine now - sort of like changing a low end consumer rig for a higher end commercial model. As long as you don't want to play the latest video games, it's fine for daily use.

      CA has 49, OR has 71, WA has 2. that is interesting. Is WA not reporting cases? Did the onions get sent to UT instead of WA?

      Final planned specs for this old Dell desktop: Core 2 Duo E8400 8 GB DDR2 800 RAM USB wifi 240 GB AData SSD Nvidia GT520 video card It'll have DVI output which should match the 22 inch monitor my son-in-law has. I plan to give the system to the grandkids for school use this fall during the COVID pandemic. It should be OK for that.

      No I think this is a Linux problem with the hardware. I couldn't get the internal mic to work on any testing sites. The USB mike works just fine, however.
