Update suck-cessful
« on: January 01, 2012, 11:38:35 AM »
Just crammed four gigglebutts of RAM into this puppy.  Still tests in the bottom 24%, but it can handle everything I need to do.

a guy on ebaY listed 2 gb 3200 low density, slightly used as 2x1 and he had two sets, $50 delivered, so $12.50 a gigglebutt.

Great Price!!

How are you liking XP?

I meant to ask what are you testing with to get in the bottom 24%

xp has some annoyances, but OK overall.  It should, considering it has 8x the RAM that my first nincompute had capacity on two HDD.
