81. Bwahahahaha...CHECKMATE! I actually PASS your purity test as you stated it.

So if your metric is "purity" why don't you research the Tyan Tiger mainboard, a Silicon Graphics Visual PC Case/DVD, Intel Pentium 4 CPU, Corsair RAM (vintage 2004). Oh yes, a Matrox Millenium II graphics card and a Vortex Boomerang ethernet card. My mouse AND keyboard are salvaged from an SGI Indigo, my hard drives are 2004-2006 vintage Hitachi and my Monitor a Hitachi Superscan 814. I run linux. When you get back to me, we'll talk. Until then, I can tell you I don't give a rat's ass about the heritage of my parts other than they work and they will keep working as long as I don't let consumerism get in the way.

Actually, I just re-read your question.. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY COMPONENTS except half my RAM are other people's discards. I PAID NOTHING as they were replacing their computers with new shiny stuff.

CHECKMATE and neener neener to you!

So I sent $49 of my own money to China for PC hardware in the last decade. I've spent more money travelling there as a TOURIST!

Stuff your sanctimony where the Sun don't shine! And I'm not talking SunOS there dearie.

All of my stuff was thrown away because Apple marketing has been successful in persuading people to buy crap they don't need this perpetuating the poor working conditions and rampant pollution you won't discuss. For the record, all of my stuff works. All of it would have went to the landfill in working condition. As long as I don't waste my CPU power on needless flashy graphics like iOS provides I find more than enough computational power to even do my research and image processing on my 8 year old computer.

If we want to assign blame for sending money to China, you just pointed three fingers back at yourself as you unsuccessfully pointed one to me. Your precious company ACCELERATES the problem through their marketing saturation campaigns that cause needless waste as people buy for emotional, rather than practical reasons. Irresponsibility again!

Until then, I find it HILARIOUS that you're trying to smack me down on "taking the 5th" because frankly I've slammed you hard several times and you just kind of fold like origami and scurry back down your rat hole.
