I'm really not much of a geek, as those things go. I don't have a wireless network at home. I don't dismantle security tags for the fun of it. Twice. However I did build my own computer, and I am very proud of what I have achieved with my SFF cube computer I built it September 2006, then upgraded the monitor and video card in December.
I'm running a Dell Precision 470 workstation at work with dual Xeon CPU's and the performance difference between that an my Athlon 3500+ at home is tremendous. I'm going to be doing more work from home soon, so I need something that doesn't bog down quite so much. Currently making its way to me: AMD ATHLON 64 X2 5600+. This, combined with the new car, and another soon-to-be-announced surprise, and I'm a very happy camper. :-)
