Editorial A couple of days ago, I read an interesting article by Kevin Kostis about how complex computer systems are and how they have a long way to go. I have to partly agree with his assessment, however a lot of folks don't take the time to learn about there own investment.

er, I built my last two PCs myself. Here's my entire list of tools required for assembly:

One (1) Phillips-head screwdriver, medium size
One (1) flat-head screwdriver, medium size (for heatsinks)
One (1) miscellaneous light source

Total cost - erm, I don't remember, it's a long time since I actually *bought* a screwdriver. Don't they just sort of spawn in drawers?

BTW, your nickname is correctly spelt 'peregrine'.
