    My PC has an internal combustion engine.


    My PC has an internal combustion engine.

    Yes, it has.
    Every morning, when it's cold (at my work place), I start my pc, and it takes a loooong-looooong time for debian etch to boot.
    And after it started, if I want to open a file / program / folder, it takes more than 2 minutes to open them.
    After about 10 minutes of PC being ON, everything goes back to normal speed.

    This started to happen since last winter.

    If I leave the heat on over night in my room at work, next day when I start my pc it works perfect from the first time.

    Do you think I need to check the coolant level and concentration?

    Regards.

    You need this
    WAECO mobile solutions - Vehicle preheating systems

    Make sure you also get the clock trigger, so it starts heating 10 minutes before you start working.
    Debian GNU/Linux -- You know you want it.

    Thanks very much.

    That is a good link.
    I did not know there are such things.
    I'll look to get one for my car.

    Thanks again.
