One thing I've been doing with my downtime is to rearrange my computer arrangement - which has so far entailed major surgery on one Linux box, and some splashover cleanups to a Windows machine. The Linux box handles my email, the Windows box handles my back yard cam. I'm happy to say they're both working again.
Also, I've been able to unplug 4 old USB hubs, freeing up an entire power strip beneath my desk. It's scary down there, kids.
