    A little off topic, but, I read you're a computer technician. Where do you work and what certs do you have? (I plan on doing that also )

    hard wire the inverter. I would think about putting the inverter inside that case also, seems you have enough room.
    How in the world would you put the special AirPort card in a PC? Mine is a Mac anyway but it's too old to AirPort. I just use a zip drive to transfer.

    Sorry man, I was at work. Now I'm home. Yeah, I'm a Computer Tech. I've been one for 9 years. I started computer when I was 8 but never did it for job until I was about 12. I don't have any certs. They aren't worth anything around here. It's all about experience. Nobody cares what a piece of paper says you know. 'Round here they wanna see past experience. I started an A+ Cert class, but couldn't finish. It was so extrodinarily STUPID, I couldn't handle it. It doesn't matter in the real world what DDR or SDRAM or SCSI stands for, as long as you know how to use it. The A+ cert program is full of a lot of useless junk.

    Yeah. Sadly all the computer stores don't hire under 18, I turn 18 next month. (IMO that's so damn stupid, there are a lot more computer savvy 16yr olds then 50yr olds) I plan on being on the "Geek Squad" for Best Buy until I can get enough job experience to go to the next level.

    As for certs, I do plan on at least gettin a CCNA cert so I can become some kind of network admin and sit on my *** all day in a freezing room and collect ~$30/Hour

    Supposedly my school is going to get me MOUS certified, sad part is I have NO clue as to what MOUS is, but they have been making us do a bunch of lousy work in Microsoft Word, I'm just hoping I don't get a Microsoft Word Cert. :P

    Edit: I have been using PC's for about, 8 years now, and I've been building PC's for about 2 years now. Never anything professionaly though, and never in a working environment.

    Yeah, use Best Buy for the experience. I have a buddy that worked at best buy for about 2 years. When she first started there, she didn't know a damn thing, but now she's a pretty good troubleshooter. Get away from there as soon as you can though, they don't pay near enough, and you don't really have advancement opportunity.

    At this point, I'm glad with anything over $6.00/hour, especially if it's something I like to do.
    What I'm really aiming for, which may be a little steep, is ~$15.00/hour so I can move the hell out of my moms house
    Even though Miami is a pretty expensive place to live (old small houses = ~180K) I think I can survive off of $15.00/hour pretty well

    Edit: I've seen small little apt.'s w/2 rooms go for about $800/month, I think I can get a friend to go halves w/me on that one
