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.

Windows XP PRO:$0, Visual Studio 6:$0, Age of Empires 2:$0, Halo:$0.
