@ Fuzzypants Thank you so much!
@ hawkeye071292 Not only did I make some convert to building their own PC's and PC gaming but I think Igot a convert away from apple LOL.
Update: Today for the last day I couldn't make it to the workshop :-( I am not feeling well and I have to work tonight so I needed to chill out. The students were all done with their computer and had taken their PC's home yesterday. Today was just fluff as they played a quiz game that we made for them on computer parts. My work was done. I slept in till 12:30PM lol so I know I was sick. I do have more pictures to post and will edit this post with them in a bit.
One student is not happy with Ubuntu so I will have to set something up with the parents or to walk them through an install or perhaps just go to their home and install it.
All in all it was a great time and I really think they learned a lot. I was actually surprised we didn't have more DOA parts but only 3 power supply's were bad and easily replaced. One thing I learned is that Amazon.com returns are great. You can do a return where they immediately credit your card back and then you ship it off. Makes it quite a bit like cross shipping or really exactly like cross shipping though they don't call it that.
