Hey there everyone

I know I have been away for a while (damn not even on weekends). The reason for this is that both my Celeron 900mhz and P3 (866mhz) PC's have bitten the dust. And as a result I do not have a PC. (btw at the moment at a friends house).

All is not lost, after sorting out financies etc. I will be getting a brand new PC. This will happen in the next week or so.

BTW specs of my new PC

AMD® Athlon™ X2 3800+ Dual Core processor
1024MB RAM
160GB HDD
DVDRW dual layer drive
MS Windows XP 64Bit Edition (Next year Vista 64bit Ultimate Edition)
Geforce 6100, 256MB Graphcs Card

See ya guys soon!

My guess... let a solid oakwood door hit a system with a bit of speed and I think the system will be pretty dead, functional as doorstop and not as hot as they used to get anymore :storm:

Have abit of fun with those old computers. Put wheels on them, go up to the roof, and roll those babies off into the wild blue yonder. Be sure to set up your vidcam so that you can YouTube. :storm:
