Um...not that it's any of my business or anything and I am aware of the fact that this is a tech support forum and not a political discussion group, but personally I would not buy a roll of toilet paper from WalMarts for moral reasons:

Down and Out in Discount America

You're your own person and you're going to do what you're going to do, but DSL and Slax BOTH run like a dream on my Compaq Presario S5000NX which was not that much more expensive than a Walmart's special, and DSL also runs beautifully, if a bit slowly, on my 166 Mhz PII, circa 1996. I haven't tried it yet on my 400 Mhz PII which I got for $30 on eBay.

If you have the know-how to build something from scratch (which I don't) you might be surprised at what parts you can find people giving away on freecycle.


I'm done.

I'll shut up now.

Sorry,  I don't do windows.

Computers are kinda like legos.

Except computers can only go together one way. :D

They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~
