Creating a Franken-PC... It's Alive!

On Saturday, I spent the day rebuilding my old Dell tower from 1999, using parts from an equally old Gateway I got from my Dad years ago and parts from an old Pentium 4 Sony Visio that Jenna used to use before it died a month or two ago.

The result, a pretty good PC. 640 MB memory. 92 Gig HD. This will solve some of my storage and back up issues until I can get a new external hard drive for my laptop.

The sad thing is that for the moment, until I have a chance to get a little maintenance done on my laptop, the 11 year old Dell is currently kicking its ass!
