ufh logo Upgrades from Hell : The Index

Upgrades from Hell is an ongoing series of articles detailing my experiences with upgrading computers.

Upgrades might be a piece of hardware, or some software, or both. Frequently the upgrades contain information which might be useful to someone else in the same situation, just as frequently, the information is completely out of date and useless. Caveat Emptor!

I write these in aus.talk.ltuae (and a few other Internet newsgroups), so a search of groups.google.com will turn them up with keyword searching. I also have a keyword search on my home page (Xavatoria Search) which could be useful for finding references to particular pieces of hardware.

Most of the articles contain resolutions to problems. Some of them don't. Indeed, some of them don't even contain problems, just a description of how an upgrade went without problems, which is a reportable event, considering how often things just go terribly wrong.

Here's the index to the UFH articles. Once you click on an article, use your browser's BACK button to get back to this index.

As always, any bouquets or brickbats should be addressed to me via the link below.
