Thanks for everyone's help with the computer. My email has been spotty for the last week or so, but I'm trying to write everyone individually to thank you personally.
A friend of mine is going to build it for me. He says it will be kick ass. I've asked him for the specs so I can post them here for all of you who know about those things. I'll put it up when I get it.
Sorry Mac people, I'm not going to take the plunge. I understand Second Life doesn't run well on it and I'm trying to expand the militias influence there.
Thanks again. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help and concern. The French are the best people in the world.
