Default the easiest money i've ever made.

i have someone who is willing to pay me about $100 to throw a P1 generation computer together from parts i have lying around at home (parts that i got for free). she was actually prepared to pay up to $400 but i'm too nice a guy to rip her off like that. i think the build would sell second hand for say $50 but she is apparently very generous.

Oh, easiest buck I made was this... 40 bucks for ordering and installing an FX5500. That was a good day.

And your still getting screwed.

You can get paid like 100$ for installing antivirus software.

And I build computers for free. :/ (I do accept benefits like beer and snacks.)

Sterotypically they are, but a steady diet of fast food changes that.
