Taking computers apart and putting them back together again is like
religion: it provides me with boundless opportunities to ask questions, of
which the answers are different for each person, they're never simple, and
are often annoying.

On the other hand, I can tell you first-hand about interrupt conflicts,
hardware upgrades, and tell you all you need to know about motherboards,
hard drives, CPUs ad power supplies. But I can also tell you that I would be
less educated in that regard, but have more of a social life if I threw my
PC in the dumpster and bought a Mac.
