Hello to all of you. I heard about bleepingcomp. from another forum I visit, and it was highly recommended. I built my first "computer" way, way back. I think it was from Radio Shack and used sliding bars and lights lit up when the correct response was obtained. Then my dad bought a TRS 80. I think the only thing my brothers and I used it for was to play 'pong'. Then on to an Apple, TI in college, then mainframes. VAX mostly. I bought my own first pc...back around...I can't remember. A 386 "SCREAMER!". Yeah, I know. I built my first pc 2 years ago. An Athlon t-bird. I just replaced it with a box I bought from "Best Buy". BEST BUY?!! Yep. Features for a price I couldn't build my own box for. (No, I don't work for them). It's a vpr Matrix machine P4 2.8 gig with a 17" flat panel .26 dp. It doesn't even have a floppy drive. <grin> I networked it with the old box. So now I have 3 computers. Those two and this Toshiba laptop which has served me well. Wireless network. Things have come a long way. I envision a day when someone develops a room temp superconductor and computers will run at light speed, and cooling fans will seem to be a silly relic of the past. I hope to learn from the rest of you, and hopefully I can be of assistance too.
