    This is the Wired Throne built by Redditor and jonat1992. Presumably while on the clock, and presumably while ignoring the constant ringing of his work phone. In my mind this is what all IT guys spend their time doing instead of poking their heads out of the basement and fina... / Continue →

    Another day, another person playing the Imperial March on pieces of obsolete computer equipment (another 3.5" floppy attempt HERE and a hard drive version HERE). Admittedly, this is probably the best-sounding one to date. My last date? She sounded like a banshee screaming li... / Continue →

    I'm no expert, but that definitely doesn't look like 'HDD Inside'. Some Ruskie, in desperate need for a little extra hard drive space to store all his commie fetish porn, drove all the way to the Russian/Chinese border to pick up a 500GB black-market Samsung. This is what he ... / Continue →
