Default PC nerd here

Hi, I'm Mike, I built my first PC probably 25 years ago, think it was a 386DX with a 20 MB hard drive.
I worked for some time in tech support, built and/or set up PC's in the thousands, and have done all sorts of upgrades, hardware repair, peripheral device install, (mostly) Windows install and support of many types of software.
I decided to go back to school 7 years ago and become a dentist but I still maintain an interest in tech as a hobby / power user / gamer (not that I have time to play anything recently).

Ah, good ol 386. I like to play with old stuff but man I think the oldest I'll go is a Pentium 3.

Just go with a Dell D630 and put saucy salamander on it!! Works good with X11 and upstart.
