    At the moment, only 1. I want a 2nd soon though. One to be connected to the NET permanently for browsing, downloading, odd gaming, chatting, etc etc and a second for sensitive stuff that I don't want virus'/hackers/trojans to get to (not that it's gonna happen that much, but how many of us have been wiped out by a rogue virus losing music, videos and save game files?).

    2 of my own, plus 3 on loan.

    1's an AthlonXP2400 which is my main box, but it used to be a 1.2GHz T-Bird. The guts of that got transferred to the case of my older machine which was, in a previous existence a Panrix PII350, and consequently has a little more, well oomph than it used to .

    The three loaners are a Dell XPS T500 PIII which used to be my workstation, an 'orrible little clone PII 300 and an Acer (PTUI! HAWWWWK! SPIT!) Celeron 433, which really IS a pile of dingo's kidneys.
