    Listed a fun project PC on eBay today. Had the itch to build a new machine, saw premium Systems have some headroom in close prices on occasion. Threw it up on eBay to see if I could make any money. If it works out I might do this on the side. I really enjoy building PCs and overclocking and tinkering and wringing out performance!

    Lost $100 or so on parts and fees and got nothing for my time.
    Oh well, experiment concluded.
    I enjoyed the experience anyway.

    Shipping it out tomorrow. I knew it was a gamble going in. I'm surprised it didn't jump higher looking at closed prices. But, as my 8th grade social studies teacher used to say. Sometimes you get the Bear, sometimes the Bear gets you.

    And this is why I stay out of the gay bars. I just don't want the bear either way.

    This was interesting, you did a great job there and someone will be lucky to have gotten this. I'm sorry you got the shitty end of the stick but it wasn't too damaging.
