There is a begi afpr in the for sale section for $135. If I were to get that much how does that put me half way to the MS?

I said this a year ago when I first came here and was one of the first ones to install it compared to the number of users now. Back then there was alot of skepticism about it. It took Scott driving my car to convince him back then

Back then you had to build the damn thing yourself, too. Now there are at least two people building them for you. It's such a no-brainer it's not even funny. :P
