I love building PCs. The last one I built was with my dad. He needed a new PC, we built a quad core PC especially for his photography needs. It's a really nice tailor made PC.
At the moment I own an iMac and an iPhone. I am itching to build a new computer, but both my iPhone and iMac cover all of my needs.
Someday I really want to build a BluRay playing TV recording PC that looks good beside a TV - but we have a DVR already and who uses BluRay when you have movies on demand?
A laptop is tempting, but I wouldn't have a need for it 95% of the time.
I have *zero* excuses for new computer hardware.
The only thing I can think of is using Amazon's cloud hosting services. Basically you can rent high powered CPU time and storage space from Amazon.
I have been hearing about small time websites hitting the big time.
There's Ravelry.com, PlentyOfFish.com, stackoverflow.com to name but a few.
Now all I need is a decent idea! : ) How about a website where people can ask and answer questions about Indonesia? Or a site where economists can post up questions and have them answered by fellow economists.
By the way, I kinda like this site:
(at least the idea behind it, unsure whether it hits the spot really well though).
