Thread: I GOT MY BOX!!!!!!!

    Re: I GOT MY BOX!!!!!!!

    yea don't give up.

    and make sure they see you doing school work on it too.

    i have my computers in my room, and my phone. and i don't really leave my room when i'm home to often (well food and toilet, i don't watch tv so i don't go to the living room or reck room). anyway your mom is prolly worried your going to spend all your time on it. or like if they want you to sleep they can't keep you from turning off your light and leaving the monitor on (its hard to see monitor light under the door depending on the angle)

    also if your parents respect your privacy then often make a point of hiding aim conversations or email or something from them, (not so it looks like porn or anything, but just like it looks like non of their business) but if they don't give a rats ass about privacy then make sure it doesn't seem like you are hiding things.

    good luck

    pffft... what a pathetic box

    I got all that, plus acs 45.2 speaker/subwoofer, DVD-rom(no cdrom), another 15gig hd and a nic. although I spent about 1500 on this box (including monitor)

    only thing is, I *only* have an athlon 1GHz

    edit: I also have a 32 meg vid card

    noooooooo!!!! now they want me to put in back in the box and keep it in the garage for a while. if that ever happens, i might have to "break" somthing to get the money or the part from them.

    Why do they want you to do that?

    The way I see things is, if you bought it with your own money, they shoulden't be able to do that unless they have a realy good reason, such as it interfearing with schoolwork or somthing like that. Thats just wrong.

    Of course, my parents don't mind me in my room all the time, as long as I keep up with all of the stuff I have to do around the house, as well as not flunk out of school

    I think I have parents. That would explain those old people in my house. I think this might be what TeRG's parents want to prevent

    TeRG, my new one is almost as good as yours...

    athlon 1 ghz
    512 megs ram
    30 gig hd
    no windows :P
    Debian
    40x cd
    16 meg vid card

    It was pretty cheap because I bought it w/o a monitor (my old 17" is just fine) and w/o any software (Bill Gates will NOT get ANY money from me!!!)

    They should deliver it during this week... *;D
