Hi wifes computer has slowed to a crawl so I have built her a new one. ::bigsmile: amazing how cheap stuff is now, only replaced the tower unit, kept the screen, keyboard and mouse, under £200 inc. vat.

Took a couple of hours to stick all the bits together, load on an old XP copy and away it went, then spent most of the day downloading SP2, SP3 and umpteen other updates. :Doh:

Nice one Olley, I built the computers that the kids use, I don't think it was cheaper initially but as bits get upgraded or fixed then the value is easily seen. In fact I have one PC that has had a couple of different cases, motherboards, drives and graphics card. Much like Trigger broom, its still the "same" PC:Smile:

Hi trigger reminds me of an incident when we where renovating the shop, we wanted to replace the stairs, not going to move them, just replace them. Building inspector said no, but said I could replaced the treads, and then in a year or so replace the stringers, :RollEyes:

They wouldn't then be new stairs which need building Reg's.

We too had trouble with the building inspector.

He came round to inspect some footings but found we were out.

But he went round the back anyway, ignoring the Beware of the Dog and Danger Building Works signs, and stepped on the boards covering the trenches.

The boards clapsed and he fell in to the trench.

There were no mobile phones in those days and out dog stood guard over him for 4 hours before someone heard his shouts. Our dog was not vicious just did not like people disturbing his sleep. All he wanted was someone to play ball with him.

Sympathy - No chance - but everything had to be in order before he would pass anything!
