I’ve opened and repaired a few laptops but I’m always fearful of breaking some little plastic gizmo. Desktops on the other hand are a breeze to repair and build. I still remember the first time I came across a bay area newspaper with all the ads for computer component parts. I knew I just had to build one.

I was always looking for ways to bring more computers into my fifth-grade classroom. Building PCs moved me from the Mac world to the world of Intel and AMD. I interviewed for a job at a new junior high school. I pitched the principal with the idea that I could build out the 33 computers for the new lab well under his budget if I got the job. After seeing a prototype, I got the job. It would seem he was really sticking his neck out, but he was that kind of guy as you’ll see from the story below.
