Ripping an audio CD should be easy, and for the most part it is. However, ensuring that ripped media is suitable for other devices and platforms can be tricky if you expect things like cover art.

Heroes Of Might And Magic (HOMM) first appeared way back in 1995. I bought HOMM as part of a Platinum Edition release by 3DO that included Heroes Of Might And Magic I, II, and III. It's been ages since I've been able to locate any of my Heroes Of Might and Magic discs (other than IV, but that's another story) so when I stumbled on the game disc for HOMM I I figured I'd try to get it working under Ubuntu MATE. I managed to get it working following some instructions on the WINE web site.
Cleaning is a critical component of increasing the lifespan of a used computer. Compressed air cans are great for getting in small spaces, but they don't tend to last long, particularly if you clean a lot of systems or with any kind of regularity. If you clean a lot of computers you'll want something like the Data-Vac MDV2TCA.
