Growing up I never had a whole lot of electronics besides my N64 & V-tech wanna-be PC. My basic toys & bike riding were all that I knew until they broke. Being irreplaceable I then turned to junk food for entertainment but that had some bad consequences. Which to this day, years after a diet overhaul I'm still struggling to reverse the damage caused by it. There's a lot I would've done differently regarding that & my computer choices.
My first giant Gateway PC came late in life, when I was about 15. That outdated machine didn't last long & was once again replaced by another Freebie. An HP Pavilion 513x that I still have in the closet collecting dust haha. Neither of which I used cautiously but I've run a wide range of scans on the HP & all say its clean. With the purchase of my current cheap gaming computer in 2011 I started practicing extremely limited safe browsing. Despite how much of a rip-off this PC was, bad Display Drivers & a PSU fan are the only major issues I've ever had.
So what does my future hold now? Well I've finally built my own PC & it runs fine but seems that for overclocking I'll eventually need more, better fans & a heatsink. Other than that, I'm just continuously trying to increase my knowledge & hopefully be entirely self-reliant someday. I know perfection is impossible, but in my opinion striving towards it helps minimize downward spirals.
