Anyone have an idea of a computer that can handle terrible trauma of temperature, dust, humidity and rough and tumble conditions? ssd drive, plenty of ram…
UPDATE: I asked someone about this and they relayed some expected conditions for such a computer, which would have almost no ventilation: An almost zero processor without amost zero monitor possibilities. Basically an MS-DOS machine that you shouldn’t presume to do anything with. I’m hoping there’s something that’s better than that! And they’re so expensive. Yikes!
UPDATE: Of course, as all long time HSH readers know, there are insurrmountable difficulties for HSH getting 501(c)3 status, meaning also that I can’t solicite donations here in North Carolina, which means, because of the same difficulties, I also can’t even do up a PayPal donation button, promote Mystica Monk Coffee, sell HSH Honey, cash checks made out to Holy Souls Hermitage, or even publish books. Hopefully this will all be cleared up within the year. However, if you force a donation on me against all my protestations, I wouldn’t insult you by not taking it. I don’t think the law requires me to insult you! My mailing address is at a UPS Store:

UPDATE: This is a laptop I’m talking about. Just to say, this isn’t a software problem. The hermitage stove is pretty rustic, and there’s always a layer of soot over everything. I don’t mind that at all, but the computer hates it. Also, the humidity is pretty high in the rain forest, especially now that I’ve stopped using the wood stove as much as I was using it during the winter also for heating. The humidity can be 99%, daily, steamy humidity. Computers don’t like that either. The keyboard is useless, so I use an external keyboard, when that works! The blue screens of death are caused, I think, by hardware tinkering. I think that junked parts were inserted when the last owner sent it back. This is one of those “refurbished” computers. Never again. I’d rather have a used computer plain and simple over against a “good as new” but “refurbished” and “genuine preowned” computer. Yikes!
