I have been using computers and programmable calculators since 1967. I have experience in building and modifying systems from the case, motherboard, and up. The current systems I have are an HP Pavilion, Acer Aspire 5315-2856 that I hacked to use Win XP instead of Vista that it was shipped with, and some I built on ASUS P4P800 and P4V8X motherboards using Pentium 4 at 3.0 and 3.5 GHz, with at least 2 GB RAM, XP Pro - Service Pack 3. I'm waiting for prices to come down on the new quad processors and DDR3 memory before I build another one.
I prefer to go by "JM" but this site requires at least three characters as an ID so I punched in the stock symbol for PerkinElmer - PKI - no particular reason just that I a familiar with their atomic absorption and infra red analyzers.
