Hello Everyone
I hope the New Year finds you healthy and Happy
Enjoy this tutorial on how to buy a Used Computer.

Step One
Start by surfing the net and wind up on E-Bay just looking around, Find an old Computer that you Don`t need and waste some Money buying another machine to play around with.

Step Two
When it arrives about a week later, make sure it`s late in the day, Dark outside and very cold and windy.
it also helps if you have a two family house with a front door on each side, and a FedEx Driver who always leaves your Packages on the wrong side of the house.

Step Three
Run outside without a coat 4 Degrees F and Always wear cheap slippers.
Don`t go down the Steps that are clean and dry, Because it`s Cold, Instead cut across the snow covered grass.

Step Four
Pickup your package turn and run back to your side of the house.
While holding the package on your shoulder, step down hard with your right foot, Fall and watch as your package sails through the air and lands on the sidewalk below.

Step Five
Attempt to get up and realise your right foot is no longer facing the right way and your ankle is fractured.

Step Six
Spend the Next Four Days and New Years in the Hospital, Have surgery including a Metal Plate and Screws in your Ankle
and no walking for the next 8 weeks. [ by the way the computer survived without any damage]

I hope this helps you with any future purchases you may be considering.

All that and it's a bloody Dell...
I think we've all had those days where noting seems to go our way, but ending in injury like that sucks, get well soon.

Hope you recover soon!

P.S. we still use a Dell that looks just like that at work! It's a P4 2.8 if I remember right.

Yeah that`s what this one is, I have a 3.06 chip that i can put in . It will enable Hyper-threading.
Or i Might strip it out and put in a newer Motherboard and CPU. Want to make a Windows 2000 Rig
When i can get up and around again

You have to check its functionality, hardware capability and performance with different software during a purchase of an old system.
