    LOL this is a bitof a odd thread but man i love the feeling of making a working computer out of old harvest parts from 15 machine. Made a solid machine for my pops. Gots a Athlon 1.2 in with Pc133 (2 X256) RAM and a k7s5a pro mobo. almsot every part of it is from a old seperate machine. Just a odd nerdy feeling and im sure a few of you know what im talking about. hehe.

    I remember that :p

    As for my computer built out of parts, it has to be my old 133 Mhz Intel Pentium. Most of the parts came from six or seven different computers, including most of the ram, and other such things :p

    Yeah, wonderful feeling, but I'm pretty sure not better than sex.

    That's cool bro - wasn't making fun or anything.

    On an aside, I wish I waited longer than I did. I always wanted it to mean something, unfortunately it never did.

    Back on topic - building 1 computer from several is pretty sweet. One of the goals for next week is to hack apart roughly 5 machines and build a decent working one. I want an additional DC to add to my "forrest" :smoker:

    :laugh:
    You mean like a religious epiphany? The sacrifice of your virginity? Your loss of youthful idealism? The impending loss of youthful innocence?:laugh:

    Or were you hoping for something history making like the fall of the Berlin Wall.

    Sorry to rag on you, but this is just too good to pass up.

    Or then again maybe you were'nt doing it right?

    Well it was my first time, so obviously I hadn't a clue as to what I was doing. That, plus it was in my car, in a cemetery.

    I'll save you the rest of the details ;)
