Hahaha, I forgot I even still had that, I need to take that link down.
I can't even remember how long ago it was since I built a PC from scratch, over 2 years at least and even my own box is a POS now.

I made this site 7 1/2 years ago and tried to keep up with parts costs for a year maybe, but with Dell, HP and Compaq pumping out pretty good boxes with the OS loaded for less than I could buy parts for, then people buying laptops and tablets, using their phone or X-box for Internet and not buying boxes I knew my self employed 25 year career as a 'computer guy' was over.

Don't get me wrong it was a fun ride and I was there when it started and rode it.
You had to be frigg'n smart to even make an 'IBM Compatible' DOS box from parts ordered off the back page ad's in Popular Mechanic's.

This was before the Internet and you had to know and be able to enter **** like your HD's head, cylinder, sector, and landing zone numbers in CMOS before you could 'Boot Strap' a system start from an HD.
A DOS prompt was your life, color was an expensive option, and even a 1200 BAUD (1.2K) dial-up modem was a $200+ item.

I did my thing, I beta tested stuff like Windows Me and XP, Games, Bla bla bla...
The tech past me by. I wasn't on the 'inside' and lost interest and couldn't make a living.

I am setting the cutting edge and bar with the motorized bicycles I build now and besides being fun and creative I can actually make a living.

Besides just the nostalgia I keep this site up because there really is helpful info buried in here and we do still have problems or victories with electronics that are fun to share here.

'Buy a PC' hehehehe, ya, guess I better make some time to go through this sites pages ;-}

I just picked up an NVidia 8400GS at Frys for $40. Pretty cheap.

Blast from the Past...


I just found several boxes of computer stuff in a bathroom closet just taking up valuable storage space.

As I explored further I found even more 'computer stuff' shoved in all kinds of places around this 1800 sf house from when I first moved in some 5+ years ago.

Heck, I have a pile of computer related stuff in my shop under my big table.

All valuable space for the new stuff I need a 'place' for hehe.
