I really really don't recommend anybody take part in this competition, it's incredibly difficult and I don't think anybody else should even try.
Give up now, save on disappointment later.

just want to wish everyone who takes part good luck!!

  Forum Editor 10:13 13 May 2006

Nice try.

Anyone suggesting whacking a Linux OS on will be taken outside and made to use an Amstrad 8256 computer......

Linux would mean you could do a considerably better upgrade for the other components, but I suspect such a change in OS would not be seen as an appropriate upgrade.

Good luck to everyone else who takes part, though I'll save a bit of luck for myself too. It's actually more challenging that it at first appears...

and you'll be fine. The skill is in getting the most bang for your bucks within the terms of the brief.

I entered and of course will win so the rest of you needn't bother even entering. Now what will I spend the money on.............

  Belatucadrus 17:16 13 May 2006

Don't go over the top as you'll max out at £200, I've already got first dibs on the £250.
Which only leaves £120 for anyone else, Like I said. Give up before it's too late !!!

  Totally-braindead 17:36 13 May 2006

Well Belatucadrus what can I say?

I know.

You're wrong I will win.

I've a secret weapon, I've managed to increase the speed of the PC by 10ms without spending any money at all.

Of course dropping it off a cliff does have a downside, it will increase its speed dramatically but won't last long depending on the cliff height.

which enterprising firm will get the results and make their fortune turning out cheaper computers ;0
