Hi Kenn,

I'm very serious. It's a perfectly good computer, may need a little cleanup though.

I'm sorry I must have been so thrown off by the pics that I didn't pay attention to the other details. I got 2 more questions. since I can't see the tower what's the model # and would you be willing to sell me just the tower alone????

Kenn,

After digging through some of the leavings collecting on top of the tower, I haven't been able to determine a make or model, it appears the monitor is an emachine, the tower, I can't tell through all the garbage, I think it's just generic, but all the hardware specs I gave you were from windows, so I know they're accurate.

Yeah, I could sell you the tower alone, but the price would be the same. Is there something wrong with the monitor, keyboard, and mouse that makes you not want them?

Hi Cheng,

I'm very serious. I'll take your offer under advisement if nobody else wants it. It's a perfectly good computer, may need a little cleanup though.

That's cool.
Hope nobody else want it :). I can take the tower without cleaning.
I am free to pickup anytime tomorrow or after 6:00pm from Monday.
Thanks
Cheng

Gray Male Cat Found

Gray Male Cat Found

I found a gray male cat on Sunday night. It's gray and black and tan. It had no collar, and is not friendly, in fact, it bites! I found that out the hard way. I also found out the hard way that it is not housebroken.

I found it near McCormick Place, eating out of a trash can, so I think it had been lost and hungry for a while, it was also pretty dirty.

If I can't find the original owner, I'll put it up on the adoptions page later if anyone is interested.
