MY wife has a house rule she calls "Karen's law of Parallel Junkers"
It calls for up to three computers on the desk. The middle one is for
work you do and only has software changes needed to function. The
second is the "old computer" and is used only if the main one should
fail. or if you find that an old file has not migrated to the current
computer The thrid is the "new Computer" and is used for tests -
configuration and expreiments. it has no critical data and so can be
re-loaded any time.
when the main computer gets long in the tooth, the New computer is
optimised and tested then takes over the function of the main unit. the
data is migrated the old main becomes the "old" computer and the old
old computer goes to the hardware cupboard. then when the itch stikes
annother NEW computer is built and the process repeats.
