I didn't lose anything.

I desperately want to reinstall it, but I'm not sure how to.

I've been looking at this site...

...but my computer won't let me download Mojave. bawl

I don't think NJ will ever be able to get back onto the Interwebs. sad yes

I am actually pretty upset by this.

It was very naive of me to DL Catalina without doing some research first, but I guess that I've never before had to contemplate losing hundreds of ££ worth of software permanently before simply on the basis of clicking an update button. sad yes

No, I install them manually.

I tried not one, but two old computers today, and they wouldn't start, I think the section of the power supply isn't working for the hard drive on one, and well the other started, crashed and wouldn't come on. I think it's CPU is over heating.

I've given up on my old G5 Dual 2.0Ghz Powersmack, that's going down the recycling centre next week. Case is too bent*, and only one of the front CPU fans is working, and that's motherboard not fan related.

I've also given up on the PegasosII Motherboard, it keeps overheating, and I don't know why, changed the fan, changed the heatsink compound, I think it's gone some sort of over voltage over heating it. That'll be the CPU/Mutherboard/Fancy OS going on eBay, 'untested' next week. evil2

So what do I do with that case and 450w PSU I bought recently, I could get a little cheap MicroATX MB/CPU and run gasp Windows10 for my little computer games that don't work on Catolina anymore.

Suppose I could try Linux again, it's time for my every 4 years attempt at Linux to see what doesn't work anymore.

*well it was, when I had to force the old hard drives out. evil2

Ooh yes, when I was watching lots of videos about computers, the other month, everyone was going on about Ryzen CPUs. Excited

Aren't they cheaper than old CPUs, or faster, or stronger, or something? Excited

Here's that man who makes three-hour long videos, building a Ryzen computer, live, before our eyes. Excited

Can't believe I watched the whole thing. shifty

I think I'll get away with a Ryzen 3, something like

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CCL-4-0GHz-AMD-Quad-Core-Ryzen-3-3200G-Bundle-Gigabyte-A320M-S2H-Motherboard/113810109083

Hmm, it's doin' me nut in! there's so many options, and for a little bit more money you can get something better, but is it worth it? blah blah
