My second computer


Yesterday, I took apart my second computer to get it scrapped.
 
It was built by a small computer shop on Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena. It no longer exists.
 
I remember helping picking out the parts- a 500 mhz Pentium 3 CPU. 20 gigs of storage. Two optical drives in it. The green case, I picked out to “make it look more like an iMac.”. I started playing a bunch of games upon it- Starcraft and Diablo being my favorites.
 
I remember the immense pride I had in installing a second drive, when I was just in middle school.
 
After this computer died, I built my family’s first computer. The first one I named. This computer was never named.
 
See ya, lime green.
