I only started this upgrade last February, so it hasn't just run
flawlessly for 3.5 years it's still upgradeable to the newest
hardware.

Underpowered Pwr supply because of the video card - most people have
to purchase the bundle because of the video card. If you would of
taken the time to research the card rather than prove yourself an ass
again, you would understand.

>Hardly the same computer then is it?


Still can't read huh? No it's not the same computer I'm using it as a
game machine now, I've disabled the onboard video and installed a
video card. Still no problems.

Freaking loser.

And if you'd ditch the attitude, people might actually deal with you as a
human being. The point was about consumer desktops. You no longer *have*
the same computer as it was sold. Hence:

And if you'd admit when you're wrong and not back pedal when you say
something stupid, people might have more respect for you.

You won an argument bitch? What's that?

Maybe you MEANT to say "I won this argument, bitch."

The comma changes the entire meaning.

You were the first person to start calling names. What does *that*
say about you? Take the retail price of your video card when it came on
the market, add that and the price of the power supply and the RAM to your
"under $1000" computer.

Heh...you people actually *buy* computers?
People just give em to me....usually goes something like this:" hey this
computer seems to be running slow lately...should I buy another one?"

Me: sure, why not?
Them: you want the old one?

Now I'm running out of space to store em...

I'm the same way, I could put together a few computer right now, but
they would be 500Mhz or less.

I have an abundance of computer parts, but all for the AT style
(Mother boards and Power supplies).

That's why I had to go out and purchase one (3Ghz HT), I have an extra
ATX power supply now it's a start.

Just lower your standards
I'm going to have to retire this 233mhz PII 64mb ram lappy soon as the
ever-growing size of web pages is causeing some noticable slowness.
I bet theres a nice PIII in a 2nd hand store waiting for me to rescue it

Well, standalone computers used or still use to connect via point-to-point
connections (formerly modems and ppp, nowadays adsl and ppoe). At the
interconnect point, most ISPs have some kind of firewall in place that at
least blocks netbios chatter and some common server ports.

Yes, but it is basically a firewall for blocking incoming requests. Ok, they
made it ask/bug for outgoing ports as well in the meantime.
However ... have you seen the exception list (programs already allowed
to "call home" and other more usefuls) accumulated after a standard user
did some surfing/mailing/gaming?
The main problem is still: the user gets admin permissions without having to
show a windows driving license, or at least some common sense.
Instead, following the standard scheme of "ok-clicking" leads to cozy and
comfortable feelings, until it turns into "getting rid of hot potatoes by
winning the fast-clicking-contest". But at this time, the
famous "one-click-too-many" already made the hell break loose.

More seriously ... having to read instructions (known as man-pages in the
*nix world) leads to much better oversight and is less stressful than
having to click through a chain of "click yes, don't read because it may
timeout - and don't under any circumstances cl, a half days
clickedy-session will be lost then and you have forgotten what to fill in
the first time anyway" - buttons.
