BY DROPPING my new RAM on the front porch around 3:30. By 4:00, I had it in the lappy and the machine booted clean as a whistle.
Noticed that, while it was unintentional, I doubled my RAM capacity in the process. The old 1GB DIMMs had 16 chips on the cards, while the new 2GB DIMMs have 8. Moore’s law or something like that. Remember the old days when SIMMs came in MB and cost three — sometimes four — figures?
So, now I have to catch up with all that I intended to do Saturday, as well as today’s chores. Life goes on.
