When the Registry in a computer is corrupted, it is time for a new one of these: Then it only takes a few minutes with a screwdriver and quite a few hours of reinstalling software and files and life is good again. The Computer formerly know as the Ice Cube rose like a phoenix from […]

I had this image kicking around on my computer for quite a while and today I came across it again.
