Where to see it
May 30, 2001 Well it has been about a year since I updated this web site, I am sorry that I have not had the time to update this web site.  However, I have to say I am having the time of my life raising my wonderful baby girl.  I keep saying that I should update the site, but when it come between playing with my child, or this site, I always chose my child.  Maybe one day I will be able to put a few hours into this site again, but for now I am happy.  I am sorry for all the links that have gone bad in the mean time, unfortunately the internet changes faster then I can keep up with it.

Also the good news is that this web site remains as popular as ever.  Today Geocities shut down this site, for a short time, because of too much traffic.  After a call to them they told me that this is precautionary because too much traffic is often a sign of abuse, the good news is that in the case of this web site it is a sign of popularity.  I thank you all for visiting and I am glad my site is useful to so many people.

Also, sorry for no more reviews, my old PB is now my second computer and my mothers old PB is my third computer (of course I only have two monitors so I can only use one at a time).  My main computer is home built, I used all the experienced I gained working on my old PB to build my self a computer.  Not bad for someone who learned everything on an old Packard Bell.  I had to build a new system, because the old Packard Bell has reached it's limit.  My new system is a Soyo K7VTA-Pro, this motherboard has the best value for the price. 

Anyway, the sad part of this is the old PB is used by my wife, but atleast it is still serving faithfully with oit's Powerleap adapter.  On the down side I will not be spending any more money on it, so the upgrade adventure is over.  All three PC are linked together with a linksys cable router so any system can get on line all at the same time.  If you want to have multiple PC on a cable modem at the same time I highly recommend one.

I have so much more I could write about, if I only had the time.  See you all later - Ray

May 27, 2000 Packard Bell has change the URL for it's web site, this has killed a lot of the links on my web site. these links will all be down until I can add the infomation to my web site or find the new link at the new URL and fix them.  I am sorry for this probem, but this is typical Packard Bell making life hard for us to get the info we need.
