Though I do still get the stubborn old folks that insist I find them a scarce like hen's teeth motherboard. For me I'm more worried that I put time and money into the damn thing and THEN the customer realizes I was right all along then skips out on the bill when they see it.
my friend has a comp shop near me, he keeps the computers untill bills are paid
he has a workstation, that the ram alone is worth 3,000, the OS is writen onto flash thats on the mobo, its a Sun Micro system i guess? he said he could prolly make 10k off of it
company that wanted it worked on didnt want to pay the bill, so its been like 90 days i think is statue of limitations here, so he sent a certified letter and now its his lol
its a good thing when you get to keep older comps, so when the next older couple comes in looking for somthing rare you may already have it due to last person skiping out on the bill
