helped Ed flip computers

Ed T, up at the CAO, on his own, reported that the dining room computer was bad. Not booting. Or rather, booting, but then looping. Sounded like a bad hard disk. Uh boy. I shared with him that a spare was on stand by. Just below the desk. On the left. He could try hooking it up. It should have a basic OS and therefore be internet ready. He could download a modern browser. He had wanted to get some work done, edit some business documents, so I suggested downloading Open Office or Libre Office. He took it on and configured the machine. Thanks! Pointed out the screen was weird, a strange aspect ratio.
