I can never have enough computers... I've even got one on the kitchen table

-They've stored my stories since I first discovered the word processor (my first computer was a sinclair 2000 - 16K memory!!!! It could attach to your TV and had a tape recorder for memory which didn't work... so I'd spend hours programming a game in Basic so I could turn it off later on. ::swoon:

-My computer never complains about having to work during my weird hours.

-It has completely replaced sketch-books, canvasses and all such other dead-trees.

-It has turned a non-letter writer into constant communication with family.

-It has assisted the most disorganized person on Planet Earth in remembering things I ordinarly would overlook.

-It pulls up any recipe I want.

-It plays music, copies it, stores it.

-I can shop 'till I drop without ever leaving my ergo chair.

-It can be set up to the exact appearance that pleases me and me alone.

-I can schmooze in realtime with anyone I feel like schmoozing with.

-It delights in running a myriad of software and peripherals -- even if I tend to over-do it hardware wise....

-It doesn't talk back (unless I want it to...)

-It is the gateway to a world of knowledge...

-If it craps out... I get a new piece and fix it...

-It backs up my life's collection of work and keeps it safe.

Ahh... I could go on forever -- but I won't (phew)

So exactly how many computers do you have...I have 17 Macs (old guys) and...I don't know how many PCs because I retired them all to the garage (got boxed up) last year and lost count. But I suppose the only one worth mentioning is and 1991 IBM Microchannel (w/ built in display). I rescued it from next to a dumpster about a year ago -- I'm supposed to be a Mac geek but I thought, hey, some PC geeks might like it. That said, I'd happily trade it for an...Apple II...who knows.

I personally have an old 386, a pentium II that is at this point OSless (I'm going to install Lindows Preveiw or Calandra Linux, but haven't had time yet), a new PIII 950MHZ (I built) and of course my baby... A gateway machine (I know I caved I should have built it myself, too) PIV 1.5 GHz (30GIG HD - WinDOZE w/ Talisman shell, ported linux commands & programs, Cgywin and PuTTY) (2GIG HD - RED HAT LINUX - plain vanilla)... oh, and my laptop that I am going to install some brand of linux on, or run a Free DOS??? wonder how I'll get anything like DJGPP on it w/o a CD rom...
