bought a computer today. $10. Also got two monitors for $5 and $20. Then for the computer, I had to buy a usb2 card and a wireless card, so that adds up to well… ~100. but it plays flac. the video kinda sucks, but that’s to be expected with a 566mhz machine with 128mb of ram on a windows xp machine.
I think I’m going to try to put linux on the thing. Problem is, I have a bunch of non-standard hardware. Like the sound card, which is outboard usb. The wireless card shouldn’t be that bad, I don’t believe. anyway, the monitors are 19″ and 20″ CRTs.
I’m ridiculous. I spent way too much money on this thing. I could’ve bought a barebones shuttle pentium M for a little bit more, and a lot more performance. plus it wouldn’tve been a dell… oh well. I’ve already taken a big chunk of metal out of it to increase the cooling efficiency. fun, eh? I thought you’d like it.
