Compy 4086

The title is in reference to a wonderfully funny series of flash animations from HomestarRunner. There are hours of Sbemails (strong bad is the character that answers the emails) and in the earlier ones he has an old computer and as it passes on he gets a new one, and it dies so he gets a new one, and that goes away so he gets the latest one. It starts out as Compy 286 then Compy 386 followed by Lappy 486 and then the Compe. They each get better in ridiculously minuscule ways and their features are always overly outlandish. It's awesome.

I'm building a computer. It's going to be much better than my laptop and not in outlandish or minuscule ways either. That's why it's the Compy 4086, because it's a thousand times better. Ok, well, I don't know how accurate that is... but it's safe to say this new beast will be much more awesome, in many more ways.

I issue a warning to readers: this next little bit is going to sound very foreign to you unless you know computers.
