As in "taking the plunge".
Right, so I've ordered a nice new (well, OK refurbed) HDD for my trusty old Novatech laptop, which has already had a new (to me) HDD stuck in it for dual-booting Lubuntu and Antix, ready for sticking PCBSD on it.
That's the plan, anyway. The fallback position is that if PCBSD refuses to play nicely I'll be sticking Manjaro on there.
So, 40Gb for £11.95 inc P&P didn't seem bad to me, off eBay, and then I followed it up with the purchase of a SATA to USB 2.5" caddy for those times when I just HAVE to play on my SEGA Megadrive emulator (MESS, BTW).
So there you go.
More to report in due course.
