SCREW IT! I am going to do it.

I am going to try about bulding one of these suckers. Desks are not that hard for me to come up with. However in the mean time, I think I am going to need about approximately 800 CPUs.

And I got the tools and the know how in order to do this. And to top it all off, I work in a computer store too. Where i get all sorts of dead and old PCs.

Firstly, I am going to need to collect the CPUs. Straight up I know that I have 2 dead Pentium IV 3.0Ghz chips, and 1x Questionalable Athlon XP 2800.
