I'm looking to upgrade my 2012 computer to be able to run some mid-range games. I'm not expecting anything spectacular. Is there a way to do this for $100 or less? I know upgrades tend to be expensive, but I'm hoping a minor upgrade to this computer won't cost as much as upgrading to the best-of-the-best out there because Technology Marches On and such.

I have an old G4 tower that I'd like to donate to charity. I don't have the OS X 10.3 disc to format the drive & reinstall with. What do you recommend I do? [more inside]

Years ago, I had a computer called a "Laser XTSL Model 1", I thought it ran DOS, but from my Google searches, I must be incorrect. But I do remember a program for it called "Go!". It was an environment, that, if I recall, looked like an office. It had a calculator and maybe a recipe holder? Could anyone provide more information about 1) The computer and 2) "Go!" (maybe without the exclamation point). Thanks!

After a visit to my parents' attic, I have in my possession a Macintosh computer that is old enough to drive a car. It has on its hard drive everything I did in middle school and early high school. What can be done. [more inside]

You all are geeks right? Well, remember those old-school banners that everyone used to print at home for Science Projects and other stuff? You know, where the letter "A" was made up of a bunch of A's to form the letter?
Where in this day and age would I get something like that done? Anyone have Print Shop Deluxe 1.0 and an old printer? Would I try some local schools??
My band's CD Release party is coming up and the whole theme of the packaging and everything is "old computer stuff".
Thanks! This place rules...
