Hm… you really want to hear depressing news? About a dead computer? Until about 3 months ago, I was surfing the net on a 486, running Windows 95, with 6 MB of RAM, and a 14.4K modem.
If this wasn’t dead, it should have been. I have proof! Running Windows on a terrible system WILL affect your mental state. Seriously, this thing was a dinosaur. A wonderful “gift” from my loving parents. I was majorly embarassed with it, especially since I was training in the computer field.
When I could get on at a friend’s house, I did so, simply so I could get my stuff done.
However, with things the way they are, and my great consulting job, (I’m 20 years old and working as a consultant? Is that strange?) I managed to the get funds to get a new computer. But, 4 years of Vocational/College computer classes shouldn’t go to waste. So… I built my own system. After all, why pay extra for the name, and a computer that looks like some Star Trek type deal, or a box that looks like a cow?
It is a Pentium 3 660 mhz. processor, with 256 MB of RAM, an Iomega ZipDisk, a CD-RW drive, and a 30 GB hard drive. I use an T1 hookup, and DSL access. Not bad, considering a similar model with everything else I wanted would have cost me about $2000. I only paid $1000 for my stuff. Having contacts in the field is great, and I would be happy to assist others.

I can build/repair almost any trouble with a computer. I have experience working with Novell Netware, Visual Basic, C++ (partial experience here), and web design, both front and back end. I also have hardware/software troubleshooting experience.
I just finished a project, and I am looking for new work.
