This area is dedicated to one of my favorite hobbies: building desktop computers from components. I've been building & upgrading PCs since the early 80's, when upgrading memory consisted of taking individual chips out of a tube and inserting them into sockets on the motherboard. Mostly, I build PCs to support one of my other favorite hobbies, which is computer games. However, I have often been convinced to use my powers for the good of building PCs for friends and relatives who have other purposes in mind.
