Same, not too many computer builders in the area, and when I find them, they are the younger crowd. Nothing wrong with that, just they don't like the "older" guys. I remember I bought some speakers on Ebay and traveled 45 minutes to pick them up just to talk to some other builders. I go over fltsim info with our avionics guy, but other than that not much here. I started by installing a scanner card on the PB, and went from there. What I learn is by trial and error or things like this board and the net. Built about 50 systems but mainly Sckt7, LX and BX slot ones. This new stuff is hard to keep up with. We used to have the same boards for each systems, now it's getting pretty detailed.
Funny thing this message string, I went out to my dads the other day to go over a upgrade for him, and it turned to them wanting a whole new system. Went with the HP 1.3 AMD. They wanted a package deal, so we checked it all out (by that it was HP, Compaq Celeron, or Emachines). The Office depot guy thought I was nuts for wanting a Athlon over the P4. I had a little trouble working with WIN XP on the setup, more to do with HPs internet setup wanting to go with the big providers over the local, so I told them they'd have to play with the system a bit to get to know it. I couldn't find anything I wanted on the new system.It was cool to install a HP all in one scanner/printer/copier and have XP come up with the drivers already installed. After shopping and setup, wasted 4-5hours.
As for the Mopars, still there. But my 94 Ram 2500
with 174K is not much of a Drag racer. They do sell 426 Hemis new in the box for about $13,000 with engine stand!
