...Sometimes, nothing matters.
Spent some time today going over all the old equipment lying around the apartment. Some REALLY old stuff. I am not even sure if any of it still works. Do I even know what the passwords are for half of them? I think it doesn't really matter anymore. I just don't have the time or energy to pour out more brain-matter and sweat to get them running again.
I sit back and wonder what in the world I was thinking when I bought most of the items in my stockpile. Why would I buy something that only half works for the most part. Was I trying to be geeky? Was I trying to fit into a crowd that really could care less?
I currently use older equipment for my computing needs. They all work flawlessly and only have what I need on them. Although they are old, they suit my needs perfectly.
Over the past couple of months I have toyed with the idea of purchasing newer equipment. I did a little research on prebuilt desktops and decided that I really wanted to build a new PC from scratch. Now I am not saying that pre-built PCs are bad. I just don't want all the flashy hardware and software that gets stuffed into a "minimal" system. I also don't want everything built directly into the motherboard.
