A BRIEF HISTORY
This site started over 10 years ago as a hobby, learning to construct a website and maybe making my fortune by selling an E-book or two on computer repair to millions....we all know where that went.
After throwing money after a number of so-called "internet marketing" systems, I discovered the secret to making money online - don't waste it on paying for other people's scams! After all, if their systems REALLY worked, they would be using them to get rich and not trying to sell them off to you, wouldn't they? I was a slow learner there for a few years.
The only place I actually made money was selling computers (Built up from parts that I scavenged) on online auction sites. In New Zealand we have TradeMe and there are plenty more internationally such as eBay. Over the years, the balance shifted and now I make more money by DISASSEMBLING computers and selling the parts online. It's still a hobby but I have provided my family with most of their household tech stuff with what I have made over the years by doing this. Over the next few months I will be slowly introducing practical, hands on methods of doing this for yourself. I just changed my Webhosting provider, so it has given me a great opportunity to start the revamp of the site.
SMASH THAT COMPUTER
SO, WHAT CAN I LOOK AT?
Below are some of the most common components/types of computer hardware that I have worked with over the years. This will expand as I get the time to work on the site and add extras in.
UNDER CONSTRUCTION: THE LINKS DONT WORK YET!
UPDATE: The RAM link is now active...and I have started the Motherboards section.
Suddenly, these are worth a lot more due to shortages.
My specialty. Not as easy as it used to be, however...
Where do I get the bits from?
Glad you asked. Let me start with where I get my stuff from. I have two main sources. Online auction sites and E-waste recycling companies. Both have their pitfalls.....sometimes literally! I will go into this in a lot more detail in future updates.
