Bakery Data Collector Back Online

Sorry for the lost of data, but the bakery data collector laptop died. It stopped working one day and when I went to investigate the laptop was powered off. I turned it back on and restarted the program. It worked for several days and then stopped again. Again it was powered off. I started it again and it ran for several hours and then quit again.

Finally I took it home and took it apart. I found that the heat sink fan was not spinning and filled with a lot of lint. I need to remember to clean the old laptops before I use them as data collectors. I have ordered a new/used heat sink fan.

In the mean time, I had another old laptop available and was able to swap the hard drives and get it running at the bakery data collector.

Hopefully this laptop will last longer.
