Just placed an order on computer hardware. For me, my family, and all of my customers, the total at Newegg came out to a whopping $3752 - At Directron, it came out to be just short of $1000.

Total amount paid by my customers, by the way, it $6,000. I > Them.

wait, wait, the directron only charged you 1000 for the same stuff at newegg which ended up around 3752? Or did i take that wrong.

BTW, good luck on your life of forever tech support.

No, Newegg doesn't sell certain items (Cases, color matched keyboards primarily) that Directron does. Different stuff working towards a common goal.

And I charge for tech support. And make my customers sign a contract saying that they get *NO* free tech support. And guess what - it works.

Maybe I should create a 'How much have you spent at once on your girlfriend' thread... even the playing fields.

If I wanted to brag about the money, I'd take a pic of my stack of $20's (Not a single new 20. Where the heck are they?)

You already are bragging about money though. And you just used that as another excuse to. How convenient, eh?

Keep going though... all your threads provide ample fuel for the flames.

My ex g/f is a tradeshow manager, and can probably equal that feat.

Personally, the most I've spent at once on computer-related stuff was the day I bought my iMac + Airport. That was about $2500 or so.
