Clementine

  • Desktop
  • File server
  • Clementine started life as a custom-built computer for my wife, and eventually ascended to the role of being a primary computer for both of us. After acquiring Venus as a primary workstation, Clementine shifted towards being a file server, making good use of her 2 TB hard drive.
  • This computer was originally built May 3rd, 2007, and refined through May 18th, 2007. 
  • Images and commentary from the building of this computer can be found here.
  • On July 23rd, 2009, this computer replaced Fozzie as my own primary computer, in addition to being my wife's computer. As a result, it inherited several parts from Fozzie in an effort to retain the best aspects of both computers.
  • On January 29th, 2012, this computer underwent a major upgrade. Images and commentary from this rebuilding can be found here.
  • On February 13, 2015, Venus replaced this computer as my primary workstation, and Clementine shifted to being a file server.
