comment How can I prepare an old PC for educational use by a child?
@random and other mods, I've given my requirements exactly as they are, going any more specific beyond this would require knowledge about educational software which is exactly what I'm missing. It is possible to provide a generic but usable and useful list of steps to be taken care of when preparing a PC for a kid, and that is the sort of answer I'm looking for. I hope the "on hold" thing can be removed.

comment How can I prepare an old PC for educational use by a child?
@gparyani Thanks for the Software Recommendations site link, I've added the question there. Regarding your first comment, I believe you've misunderstood the question. I already do have a new PC for myself, this is to make an existing old PC available to a child that can use it, rather than scrap it off uselessly. I was disappointed to have to put in XP unavoidably, but the benefits definitely outweigh the disadvantages of XP in this tradeoff.

comment Blurry white streaks on CRT monitor - what could the cause be?
@DanielRHicks Thanks for the response. I don't own an oscilloscope though and it looks like a "basic" model starts at around Rs. 35000 (~$650), definitely outside my budget for this work. If that or getting a professional look into it are the only options I might have to give up on this one for now.

Haha. Yes, old memories kicked in and I did degauss it a few times, didn't help at all.

comment SSH: The authenticity of host <host> can't be established
@BenVoigt Yeah, I understand that, the truly paranoid would of course get to those pages through a different unrelated network, or maybe fly to github headquarters and get the fingerprint in person :)

comment SSH: The authenticity of host <host> can't be established
"If you're paranoid, verify the checksum/fingerprint of the key using an alternate channel." For the paranoid (and for the record), github's fingerprint is on help.github.com/articles/generating-ssh-keys and bitbucket's is mentioned in confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/…
