When I was a kid my parents used to take us to museums, historical sites, and other educational places. Some of them where interesting but most of the time I asked why we couldn't go to the amusement parks. At the time I didn't have a firm grasp on finances and so didn't understand how taking four kids to an amusement park, paying for admission, rides and food could be prohibitively expensive.
So, when Mum came we returned the favour and went to the Intel Museum. (It's free lol) She took one of the rare pictures of us together which was probably the highlight of the trip for her.
I think Dustin must have felt the same way. After Mum left he kept talking about a new computer. He never said it but, I think it really disturbed him that one of the displays featured our motherboard and that display wasn't at the end. Of course he couldn't just go buy a new one. Why buy what you can build is his philosophy and I agree.
So the research began. What are do we use it for? What would we like to use it for? How much are we willing to spend? What processor? What mother board? and on and on. Well a year later here he is:
Last Friday the replacement parts came and with only a couple of trips to the electronics store the computer was reassembled. Over the last few days I have been installing software. And now (drum roll please) the new machine...
Only it looks exactly the same as the old one since we used the same case. So instead of taking a picture I made this little video.
Now you have a voice to go with the writing and I had better stick to writing since I can't seem to figure out how to embed a video
Have a happy day
