This sadly is my repurposed computer! Yes, I can create almost anything with my imagination, a box, and duct tape.
I had to come up with the above horrible looking contraption when my old laptop finally refused to even turn on. After a few days of brainstorming, I dug out an even older laptop that had a cracked screen and inoperable keyboard and an ancient monitor from the dark ages. I purchased a wireless keyboard from Amazon for less than $15.00, and I already had the wireless mouse.
Then the building began.
As you can see the monitor sits on top of a box which hides the old laptop which although useless as a laptop still has a semi-working operating system. I plugged everything in and bingo it all worked!
The box is the perfect size to keep the laptop inside so that it can stay open and therefore also stay on. Also, the box serves as a stand for the monitor.
Duck tape, of course, keeps the wires in place!
It all looks hideous, but when you’re trying to keep five plus websites afloat staying online is imperative and beggars can’t be choosers.
