Then I moved on to the Atari 540, 1040 and Mega ST's and I entered the PC world with the Intel 286 CPU. Back then there was no book or internet to find things out, it was trail and error and it was not all the hard really, but then again I was an electric mechanic and enjoyed playing around with electronics. If you know how to use a screw driver then just grab the old computer and start taking things a part and pay attention to how things come apart.
Heck, I just taught my 5 year old how to take apart an old PIII PC and put it back together, in fact I have the same old pc sitting in my garage right now and all 3 of my kids were taught how to take it apart and but back together so that they can fix things themself when they are out on there on. It not rocket science but does require some common sense but we learn by doing and today you have the world of internet to help and many youtube vids that show you step by step.

I still have a Pent3 in storage "just in case". I also have an AMD Anthlon 2800+. Both are in excellent condition and can always be fell back on in case something happens with my present rig. At least by using either of the two I can get online.


I just can't bring myself to buying a laptop or a tablet. Besides their portability I have no use for them. I wouldn't know where to begin if something happened to them.

I can always upgrade a desktop and change a defective component.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
