Agony and defeat: My new computer.

I decided to build a new computer. It looks cool, and I have photos to prove it.

But the computer does not work. I spent most of Saturday at a friend's house, testing components and swapping things in and out. We concluded that the problem is a bad motherboard.

I may be in a bad mood for a while.

at least it looks neat.

now that i actually have a job, i think i want to build a computer this fall. i want it to be the rice rocket of home computers- with neon lights and a modded box and everything. surfing the internet never looked so hot.
