It's official, I bought a new / used computer. A Dell Optiplex 745. It is a duo core 3.4 Ghz, 80g hard drive (sata ), 1gb ram, with serial & parallel ports. Looks like everything I need to get back to business. 7 day DOA and 1 year warranty, $250 delivered. Maybe I should get two and put one away for next time.
I should be able to connect my 500gig drive and transfer most of my files drive to drive. But I will have to load all the programs one at a time. So the plan is to load everything into this new computer and run it for a couple of weeks. Then clone the 80gig hard drive to my new 500gig hard drive and continue on. I might just miss my 3.5 floppy drive.
