kk, we are going public with our business here soon. Probably grand opening July 4th or around there. We also have a booth at the fair. Was going to go with custom computers, then PC support. I just got notice that we could get computer parts from a cheap company, now at their wholesale price. Which means I can build a puter for incredibily cheap. So unfortunately, our PC Support is onlyin the surrounding area, but I will try to add any interested UGN Security members, to custom built PCs at the price of buliding and shipping. More news coming soon, as it gets finalized.

Sorry, I haven't seen this, but you asked why the restore disks suck. They don't allow you to use them on any machines besides the one that it comes with, and if there are any hardware differences, it won't work either. My brother's machine had gotten fucked up, so we used the restore disk on it. I had put in a newer video card along the line though, and it said that the hardware configuration didn't match, so it wouldn't install. Fortunately I had saved the card, so I was able to revert to the original hardware config (taking out an extra drive and an Audigy card as well) and got it to install. That's just problematic. Also it installs everything as a huge bundle, so any extra bullshit that you don't want gets installed. Of course they've got deals with other big companies, so that's why, but I hate that. You also can't install stuff individually, which I can't stand. If some program is messing up, I want to just install that. With the restore disks, if one program gets screwed up, you have to go buy a copy or redo your whole system.

Another suggestion I have is after you do the burn in, install all the software, and download all the updates and fixes and everything. I really hate having to do that after buying a new system. Of course by the time it ships, there will be more (if it's Windows *snicker*) but you can reduce the number of updates required considerably. That's especially helpful for people on dial-up. I'd also recommend making something like a restore disk, using some kind of disk imaging program, to restore the system to its original state with all the software that came with it, along with the updates. As much as I said I hate restore disks, that's because that's all OEMs distribute. Make sure to include the original software disks and I'll buy from you forever

Cool idea jon! I might buy a computer from you if I ever save up enough money...anyway, I have a suggestion: Well, It's cool your going to have generalized software add-ons so people can customize even more, but what about software requests? For instance, I could request Nero and Kazaa to come installed with my PC. Would this ever fly?

Gizmo, it's not like it's any different than with any other software. Jon installs a legit version of Nero, and sends along the CD and docs. Kazaa is free, so that's not a problem at all.

Tell me what you are interested in. The easiest way to do this is if I can get a few of you to actually have the specs you want, and I can get the stuff all at once. So I can hopefully knock a lil more off the price. Granted 5-10 orders won't exactly get a bulk discount, but might help a little.

Could we have a link?

Since it's so far away, it probably won't happen. But I'd like to buy a few (in a few years) to set up a little network for my friends to come game at whenever they want.

Cold Sunn..

as of now fleshy has 4 websites to do. I will be assisting her on some of those if she needs to. She was working two jobs and will soon be again. I have a contract job for the next 2 weeks. I am in process of finding car, apartment, more work, and getting business started.

My point... we don't have a site yet and by how it is looking, it may very well be a few months until the custom PC part of it is even up

I am looking towards services with far less overhead, to begin with. This offer with UGN Security is just for UGN Security for now and it not a public offering, so their is no public website even cloes to being done yet. Sry
