I'm a 47 year old former PC enthusiast. I used to work at NASA when I lived in florida for a while. I haven't been custom building computers primarily due to finances. I went through a rough divorce and I had a lot of other priorities including medical. I broke my lower back and neck which made a laptop more practical. I'm back and feeling much better. This is my first new rig in quite some time and I look forward to contributing to the forums. Even though I wasn't building, I did keep up on all the new tech so I shouldn't have a very big learning curve to catch up with the average builder at least. So hello everonefrom North Carolina!!! Go Tar Heels!!
