Hi and welcome to my computer page!! Well as you may have guessed I do have a computer in the home albeit a very cheap one. If you have visited this page before 1999, you would have known I was at the time using Windows 3.11 and DOS 6.22 on an AST 486dx66 with only 16 megs of ram and a 170 megabyte hard drive.   .Nothing like trying to crank start that puppy in the morning and getting all those funny dos prompts.

TIME WARP TO 2017

How the years fly by.It seems like just a short time ago I had just moved to NYC and was rebuilding everything from scratch again. A lot has changed over the past couple of years. Back in 2006, I had just moved there ,now in 2017 I have really had a lot change in the computer areas.

First up. the main box.I built this with the intent of using it as my main media machine.

Asus P5Q SE2 mainboard

3.00 Ghz Intel Core2Duo CPU..overclocked to 3.4 Ghz

8GB DDR2 800 Ram,

1024Mb Nvidia Quaddro 2000 PCI-X video card,

Easy-tech hot swap SATA3 drivebay with 4 SSD Now! 120 gb drives with various operating systems

750 Gb WD Blue HDD,2 TB WD Black HDD for media storage

LG 16X DVD RW,

Wireless G PCI card,

Asus Xonar DX 5.1 surround sound PCI-X card

Dell S2409W LCD monitor

This setup completes the media server machine that I use to watch videos and listen to music throughout the place .As a standalone internet access machine it doesn't take too long to do anything on it .

Stay tuned more info on the way soon !!
What I used to look like waiting for that clunker 486 to boot up Windows 95 :)
