Ok, kinda imbarassing, but... the first comp i built couple of years ago , I forgot to put in the post for the mobo, preseded to tighted the screws tightly and.... well not only did i short out the mobo, I crack it as well over tightening the scews. That's my serious "DOH" move.

My friend decided he thought he knew how to pull appart and put back together an old 386 - "this fits here so that's where it's going" - never worked since

LOL, like the win98 post.
Yea, I used to need a 98 PC sitting off to the side because I always lost my win98 boot disk....(which are still the sh*t!). But now that bootdisk.com exists I found myself driving around Baltimore, looking for a really tall builing to drop the Windows98 PC off of.

Hey another Marylander! Hers a stupid story. One day in my NIS class this kid decided lets see how strong a Dell really is. The next thing i know its on its side on the floor smoking and hes running in circles like an idiot. Don't believe Dells durability testing because we did some of our own and they failed.
