This is a seminar on building your own IBM clone computer for recording audio and possibly video. We dispel myths and mysteries about the terminology and how parts work. We investigate your needs, then show you how to build a system to satisfy those needs. Students will be required to purchase a set of tools and the computer parts they need to finish assemblage. Some of the software we have will be free for use during the training. This will build a good foundation for understanding what goes on inside your computer so that you can grow your system to accommodate future upgrades and expansions
