For example, I finally took apart my 1994 Packard Bell 50 mhz computer. From what I had seen recently in newer models, that 1994 looked pretty ancient.
I think it would be interesting to cobble together a computer from all of my collection of cannibalized parts so I have saved quite a few. However, it seems like right now, computers are about ready to take another plateau leap and all these parts will be so slow and ancient in comparison that it's like a real waste of my time.
I am wondering if I ought to just invest my time in learning how to better work with software - like learning Movie Maker. Rather than keeping a Sanford and Son computer back lot.
If taking all this stuff apart has any benefit it has at least made me capable of changing a bios battery, installing cards into expansion slots and making me unafraid of installing second hard drives and burners.
With all the real time players, advanced games, etc, are all thse computers going to get so advanced that anything anyone saves will be obsolete in a year or two? What do you think? Maybe I ought to just build a bare bones computer and satisfy my need to tinker.
