I gave a way a computer, it was chock full of decent parts, not especially fast, but well built, and I spent ages cutomising the thing to the kid's needs. The kid then swapped it for a marginally faster, but utimately inferior computer, becuase he "wanted a tower" The bloke who swapped my 2Ghz P4 for an older and underspecced 2.4Ghz P4 obviously saw the kid coming...
I was marginally upset that something I poured so much effort into could be treated so shabbily, but I was the one who gave it away. Once out of my hands it was no longer mine, it's a hard lesson to learn, but a neccessary one.
