I love everything about computers. I enjoy reading and talking about
them. And I love spec'ing and building systems for myself and others.
Physically assembling a computer is not difficult; it's a task anyone can learn. But there is an art to selecting the right combination
of components and doing a quality job of assembly and installation.
I'm a big advocate in getting the most
out of technology purchases, so I always try to select high value
Of course, that also means I (usually) don't end up with bleeding edge
hardware, but that's fine as I'd rather get my money's worth than overpay
for power and/or features I won't utilize.
Here are my current systems:
DEE is my current everyday, all-purpose desktop computer. It's got good
power, plenty of storage and is on the pleasantly quiet side.
VENUS and AMICK are my previous desktop computers. I'm thinking of
upgrading the video card and turning VENUS into my new gaming system.
THIVISOL is my Home Theater PC and performs digital video recording and
audio & video editing duties. It allows me to record TV and radio programs, so now
I'm able to archive my favorite TV shows and Howard Stern.
LENZ is my Gaming System. It's dated because I don't have much time to
game. And the only game I really play is Grand Theft Auto 3, so it's fine for now.
TSIANINA is my current notebook: a Dell Inspiron
700m. It's petite, fairly light (at about 4.5 pounds) and a dream to use away from
DEPRISE is my older notebook. A future project is to install
Linux on it.
