Alright Arzach, Sparrowhawk, DingDong, USMC0311, Namnuts (dat one still cracks me up JOS) and JV..... and any Nam bro's I have missed....I have a bad case of CRAFT and I don't remember some o ya............I know you bro's is gonna pass out about this post comin from me, but here's our chance to show these New and Improved Marines something about watchin sixers......course this is peacetime watchin.........This here Moween Gary lost his job and ain't got no puter....He loves his bro's and bro'ettes and needs to stay in contact with them or else he will turn into a "Doggie" and we can't let dat happen. So I say that Shaffer or one of the other moderators should contact Gary and tell him weez gonna have a fund drive for him....if we can just send in $5.00 apiece and if Shaffer will mass email or PM the members why we could have that Marine a Puter before you can say "Ricky Tic" or "DiDi Mou"...I must be havin a weak moment here....must be sumthin my CO fed me fer dinner.....all I know is that I would croak if I couldn't stay in touch with my Nam bro's and It bothers me that this Marine might not be able to stay in touch with his....
I am basing this request on our "Old Band o Brothers Creed" which simply was "Watch yer bro's Sixer".........How bout it Shaffer......git it goin will ya??

Both the Mouse & Keyboard use a PS-2 connection, it's the small connector.

A step down adaptor will work on the Keypoard, but some mice may not respond properly if stepped down.

I should have this box up and runninhg sometime tomorrow. It will ship with Win 98 Second Edition as it's opperating system.

Roger, ask Gary if he wants MS Office installed.

Gary's PC is comming along nicely, and we should have it all configured sometime today.

We will ship tomorrow baring any driver issues with the Modem, (have a modem, but still looking for its driver) is't a bastard - OEM so can't download it from MFG.

We should have this fixed today.

Looks like the only issue is the Monitor, lets get to work on this Most-Ricky-Tic.

In worst case, we raise a little cash.
