    I use this one for talking about a computer in general and the function of its components. A computer is analogous to a box of stuff in the garage. Getting a hard drive/ flash memory with more capacity for data is like getting a bigger box so you can store more stuff in it. Getting a faster processor that can manipulate data at a greater rate is like being able to search through the stuff in the box faster. Getting more RAM capacity is like being able to hold more of the stuff you need in your hands while you work on it rather than having to dig though the box and get one piece to use at a time. I guess the power supply is like lunch, so you feel like going into the garage and looking through boxes. Turned out to be simile I think. Also, thank you Sparkfun crew for making it easier for younger and younger people to get excited about electronics and science; the touring is an awesome idea.

    I had the same problem but it only happened on one of my computers. The computer can boot ubuntu 10.04 LTS or Win 7 x64. The blue screen would happen for windows but no problems for ubuntu. Sorry to say that I still do not know what causes the problem.

    Thanks for the chance to get free stuff! Instead of F5 I need a whole new keyboard. Can’t wait for the recap.
