Making an Internet Machine.

Before move forward to Rochester, I am trying to spend time with the family. I am at my parent’s house making an internet machine. Basically I took their computer (Athlon 1150) and removed everything. Installed MS XP SP2, Mcafee, Office 2003, Spybot / addaware and Kazaa Lite. This should last them for two years after which I will get bored with my p4 and give it to them. I also recently purchased a laptop R3000Z Compaq, not a bad machine if you get it around 850$ fully equipped (Thanks for Fatwallet.com).
I will be in Boston with the grandparents next week, then go and chill with my fiancé, before heading to Rochester on Friday Sept 3rd.

  • What Is Wrong with so many Spy-Ware Tools that promise to do the job?

    After installing you find out they use so much memory! They have to run in

    the systems tray and always have to be run on a regular weekly bases!

    And if thats not enough we find out we have to pay for the upgrade

    so it will run in the background,But it still sucks up the memory!

    Simple Solution you want a software that will kill that Spyware

    and all the Gremlins on contact use the least memory and be a

    Set & Forget Tool!

    Grab it Now Free plus a how to Video w/ Xp Mini Course !

  • Hi there Pablo, I’m out surfing for the latest
    information on spybot and found your great site.
    Although this post wasn’t exactly what I was looking
    for it certainly peaked my interest. Now I see why I
    found your page when I was looking for spybot
    related information and I’m happy I found your wine
    blog even though this isn’t a perfect match. Great
    Post, thanks for the read, I will leave you with one
    of my favorite quotes from Andy Rooney: " Computers
    make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the
    things they make it easier to do don't need to be
    done.." Andy Rooney

  • Don't you think it is amazing? The amount of power that can come from a computer chip. I am looking through blogs to find others who have written about the same interests.

  • It is not uncommon for people to confuse "addware" with "spyware" and "malware", especially since these concepts overlap. For example, if one user installs "addware" on a computer, and consents to a tracking feature, the "addware" becomes "spyware" when another user visits that computer, and interacts with and is tracked by the "addware" without their consent. addware free scanner

  • Saw your blog about reverse mortgage information - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

    Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!
