Tim brought in a bunch of PC build questions. He had purchased a gigabyte mohterboard and was asking about cases. Additionally, he asked about sound cards and other components. He said he had only invested around $500 in his new machine.
Additionally, Tim notified us that the start time of 7PM was not clearly on the website. I made sure most of links now have it. I made sure the 7PM was added to the footer. This way it will be attached to every page.
