    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I still own everything, it's just not all hooked up. Horray for closet/attic space!

    Several PCs (Only two hooked up, right now)
    Two Laptops (One I haven't used in a long time)

    XBox
    PS2
    Gamecube
    Sega Dreamcast
    Nintendo 64
    Playstation
    Sega Genesis
    Super Nintendo
    Nintendo
    Sega Master System
    Intellivision (This is in the attic, somewhere)

    Playstation Portable
    Gameboy Advance
    Gameboy Color
    Game Gear
    Gameboy
    Virtual Boy

    Sad to say I never owned an Atari. I was in fact extremely young when I (read: my older brother) got the Sega Master System. Intellivision my dad had got before I was born. Everything Playstation and on was my systems. Everything before that was technically my brother's. (I always got the second controller. ), but I eventually seized control of them after he got other hobbies.

    Own Now:

    PC

    Did own:

    34 PC's (each individual in their own right)
    Snes
    Nes
    C64
    PS
    PS2


    Those PC's eventually got split up and used to improve other peoples' machines. It's horrific how many people have awfully slow and plain crap PC's in this day and age. I am talking about 10 year old hardware, one guy had ISA only slots!

    *yawn* AMD fanboys will never learn. Intel is and always will be highly competitive. In fact, the latest and greatest quads coming out by AMD still don't compare with the Conroe core. ...AMD should have wasted their time and effort taking over ATI. They're falling behind. Sure, they'll be back up there, but anyone who really takes sides really has to look at the facts.
