and they always laugh at me...
They're not laughing AT you, they're laughing WITH you...they're just pointing so everyone will know who they are laughing WITH...
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Having the newest, fastest, and best is great, but I am not a multi-millionaire. I chug along on my lil ol 2000+, putter around on my internet, and dream big. One day, I will build a system I can be proud of.
But, bills come first, hobbies second. My wife doesn't complain a lot about it, other than the time I spend on here, as I don't really spend much money on it yet. I have friends who put every dime they get hold of into a car, or a boat, ot a motorcycle. Not me.
