    Im attending ITT here in Spokane. I just started my third quarter today, and we are sitting there going over the class schedual and what not and this guy comes in to tell us to go and get our books. (Privte school books are part of tuition.) So then they hand us a 40Gig Western Digital hard drive with our books. We figured we were gonna get some busted down hard drive out of one of the old machines. It also has a case that you slide into the tower, so its kinda like a Poratable hard drive. I was excited and thought i would share.

    We got a removable hdd in our OS class at the CC. We didn't get to keep the drive but we got a free license of XP pro.

    Cool. I would have hard modded the Celeron 900 to run at 1200, then run a huge ass heat sink with a Peltier under it to keep the chip stable.

    Ah, ok. I assumed that you got a board where you couldn't screw with the FSB. :)
