On my local craigslist, I saw someone selling a basic beige tower with internal parts for $20. I was intrigued. I looked at the crappy, low-res, blurry pictures and I instantly knew what it most likely was. I go pick it up, and my suspicions were right! It was a dual slot-1! YAY!
it works! 256mb of ram, 2x 500mhz P3's and an IDE zip drive. I was REALLY hoping it would be a scsi zip drive. The case did come with a stray scsi cable in the bottom. Anyway, on my drive home, I buy a soda and a $1 scratcher, because I feel awesome. And I win $20. Pretty awesome day if I do say so myself!

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
