Default I got it bad...

Please tell me I am not the only one on here with a computer in his garage....







Picked it up at an estate sale...20 bucks. All it needed was a hard drive and a memory stick...both of which I had in spares

Add a video card (128 Nvidea), some speakers, a wireless adapter, and I got a pretty nice networked PC that I don't mind getting greasy.

My reasoning is 1) I have alot of MP3s I can load up on here, and jam out while I am wrenching. 2) Once I load Winblows on here, I can put my HP Tuner on it, and not have to tie up the laptop (I currently run Ubuntu as the OS, and it does really well), 3) I can put all my PDFs on here and use this as my virtual FSM.

Then there is the "gee-whiz" factor

Hmmmm.... I'm tempted.

If it helps, I've been known previously to have 3+ computers in my bedroom throughout high school

Now I don't have anything but my laptop.

That tower you see in the pics has now traded places with my livingroom computer (which is an older IBM ThinkCentre 3.0 GHz P4...actually about the same age as the tower I got), which is more suited to non-indoor environments. And it already has windows installed on it, which will make installing the Tuner a bit easier.

Yeah, I think I'm gonna like having a PC in the 'rage.
