Once upon a time when 2001 was supposed to become a Space Oddessy reality Pentium class cpu computers were deemed to be the gold standard in desktop PC systems, and in that time those who had the knowledge and skill to rapidly assemble such machines were in high premium demand. And so I gave up my time to a local charity that asked me to build 7 working machines from a collection of donated parts, old machines and components that I had bought so that they could be shipped off to a collective in Cuba who were in much need of desktops given the trade blockade that Cuba was under from the US, so that this developing nation could start to join the information age.

Here's the video I made during my 14 hour ordeal, vowing NEVER AGAIN would I agree to build more than 1 computer in any one day, still this was for charity where the container ship was destined to leave Britain's shores for Cuba virtually as soon as the 7 or 8 machines were built and transported off to port during the morning.
