BioMonster's PC Profile

First tasted the internet and computers during my second run through college. First computer I ever had consistent access to was an ancient PowerMAC 6530, omg that was horrible. Eventually I bought myself an eMachine for 400$ during my third run through college. That's how I know how to do tech support! Sooooo many hours trying to get that thing to work right.
As far as why, I'm just a dork and I happend to gravitate towards computers and computer stuff.
