My Computers

This is a catalog of (almost) every computer I've ever owned, each with their own writeups and (most of the time) galleries. As someone who writes software and developed an unhealthy addiction to computers at a very young age, I've come to own a lot...

Most of my current systems' nicknames/hostnames are based on blocks/items that can be found in Minecraft. Don't ask why, I just needed some kind of theme other than "Koko-<SYSTYPE>", and since my phone was named Quartz and my MacBook was named Prismarine, I went with it.

This is mostly for personal reference, and the specs listed with each computer won't always be "official"; I swap parts around all the time. If you need a definitive specsheet for a computer listed here, look elsewhere.
