So there are a few more questions I get that are actually more serious that I would answer here.

 

What are those phrases under the website title, is that some poetry you wrote or something?

Those are classic rock quotes.  “Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night” is the proper lyric of the Mannfred Mann’s Earth Band version of Blinded by the Light (the popular version, misquoted as “wrapped up like a deuche”).  This month’s is from the song Twilight Zone by Danish act Golden Earring.  Previous quotes have come from John Fogerty, Fleetwood Mac, Eddie Money, The Rolling Stones, Heart and more.

 

Are the computers you make for sale?

I sell them all, but only locally on Albuquerque Craigslist.  Right now I’m working on putting together an ebay store and a storage unit so I can up production.

 

Are AMD/Intel CPUs better than the other?

Rule of thumb:  Intels will outperform AMDs on average in each category.  The AMDs however are often $100s cheaper and more overclock friendly.  So potentially you could buy an AMD and a fancy liquid cooling setup for less than an Intel chip and then overclock to numbers the Intel could never touch.  As I always support the company who sells to my philosophy, I recommend AMD chips, but often run Intels as well.  One of my dreams is to build a computer with 2 motherboards in 1 case, one Intel and one AMD.  They would be bridged to share the same network, storage and media drives that could then be sent throughout a house.  The idea would be to make a system that could provide different types of entertainment to every room in a house without sacrifices.
