One of my jobs is to build PCs. Usually that job is to configure new PCs for deployment. With every new PC that gets deployed, there is one sorry machine that comes back. Over the months and years, lots of client machines get worked on and repaired. With that labor comes a pile of parts. The end user is happy with their new PC and I'm happy to have their "beloved" PC back for rebuild or parts. Maybe happy is not the right word for what they give back. "Happy" is not to have it in service anymore. |
So ... from an HP Vectra VL frame from the retail store, memory from Franks PC that got hit by lightning, a keyboard that lacks the number 3 on the keypad, a monitor that is heavy on blue, a mouse that Kelly said "Sucked" (she was right) a better PC was born for the Garage.
The heart of the story . . . Making something out of nothing is the mission statement at Suitor's Garage. There is a reason for that pile of "stuff" that just can't be thrown away.
I installed the old 33.6 modem out my Dell PC and got connected. It just doesn't get much better than that !
I'm even starting to like the blue slant on things.
