bought it, used it, upgraded it, abused it, upgraded it more, burnt the HDD down, rebuild it, salvaged it - still functional, waiting for a reason to rise again !

we threw away the chassis back when I didn't know any better and it was a full tower. =[ Still have most the parts though, although I dont know where the processor is =/


I dream of 0s and 1s folding to my every command,

algorithms seeping from the back of my head when I need them.

I used to play good old Frogger, and had many late night LANs with my favorite teddybear, playing pinball hoping not to wake up my parents :)


An opinion far away from your own can only be seen as madness.

Played this and LEGO Racers 2 on it. The T-rex maze in that land before time game was terrifying, slender isn't even close. Ended up taking it apart after getting a laptop. (To be fair, windows ME was that bad.)

What I did with the first computer I built was run an apache server whilst I learnt php to host my webpage and to run fold at home as the apache server didn't need a whole lot of power as I was hosting privately.

I upgraded it from a pentium dual core e2140 to a core 2 duo,upgraded to 4GB of ram,added a graphics card to it to play light games.

when that wasn't enough anymore I salvaged the hard drive from it,lasted 5 years now and it's the hitachi deathstar HDD lol,and built a new pc.

still have the old one with the other parts in the basement,replace the HDD and it works fine,moms going to use it later on probably.
