Brain-picking time

Couple of questions addressed to "everyone out there."

Anybody know a good moving company that does fairly small, international orders?

If I built my computer in the UK with a UK power supply, etc, will I be able to get a US power supply and use it, or do I need to completely rebuild my comp?


If nobody's guessed already, my mom's decided to show her unhappiness with my decision by making me figure everything out myself. Funny how she was willing to take care of everything for me when I did what she wanted.

I don't know of any good shipping companies (I've never moved ^-^;;), but I'll try to help you out on your other question:

There's two things that you can do...one is buying a voltage transformer for your computer. I don't know exactly how it works, so using one might eat up your electricity since it'll be converting it to about 100 volts higher than usual.

The second thing that might work (I'll ask my computer instructor about it) is just changing your power supply box in your computer. I want to make sure with someone who knows because it might screw up some of the hardware it's hooked up to

a voltage converter might work, but thats a lot more trouble then it's worth, what you need to check into is what voltage your motherboard's "power in" (the place where you plug the power supple into the motherboard [the really big board you plug everything into]) slot is rated for. Also what type of power the power supply can accept.

I think thats all that needs to be done although I'm not 100% sure, but ummm wait for Maria to return with her computer teachers answer. Also you might think of asking for some help from a computer teacher from your campus out there.

Thats all I can think of, I know absolutely nothing about international shipping companies. Might try remembering who your mom used if you ever say a box or you could ask you mom, not advised as she probably wouldn't tell you anyway.
