Thanks, I only meant to submit this in my journal but screwed up the submission. Anyway, on NewEgg I mean the DIY PC Combos http://www.newegg.com/Store/MasterComboStore.aspx?StoreID=7&name=DIY-PC-Combos and on TigerDirect the Barebones kits http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_tlc.asp?CatId=31&name=Barebone-Kits&cm_sp=Masthead-_-Computer%20Parts-_-Spot%2002 It looks as if the prices are about half of what the same would cost all assembled RAM included (in the $250-$300 range for the ones above).

Mantorp writes "My ancient (6 or 7 yr old) PC finally died and I think it's the powersupply or motherboard or whatever, it just shuts down as soon as push the powerbutton. Anyway, it's an old single core machine and I think I deserve a new slightly faster machine. I don't want to spend more than $2-300 and it seems I can get significantly more bang for the buck by getting a kit rather than a ready made PC. But, how hard is it to assemble one of these from TigerDirect or NewEgg? My level of expertise is limited to having popped in more ram, installed a video card with a TV tuner, and replaced failed hard drives. If it's much much harder than that I'll probably screw it up."

4chan Declares War On Snow 201 Screenshot-sm

from the common-enemy dept.
With all the recent hacktivism in the news, Anonymous has decided to take on a new and powerful enemy: snow. On Sunday the group announced that it will "do everything in its power to shut snow down by attacking the Weather Channel and North Face websites, boycotting outerwear, and voting for the sun as Time’s 2010 Person Of The Year." I'm sure there are a lot of people in Minneapolis right now that would wish them luck.
