Free Tip

OKay. Here’s a quick computer tip. If you’re going to upgrade your laptop to Windows XP, and then you’re going to take said laptop to the hospital and try to use it to organize pictures of your new baby and write updates for your website, make sure the laptop has more than 64MB of memory. Because Windows XP, you see, doesn’t like being limited to 64MB of memory. In fact, it hates it with a passion. It feels like you’re running on pure molasses, or computing underwater, or something. Log on to Windows? Two minutes. Connect to Internet? 45 seconds. Open e-mail program? 90 seconds. Open Windows Explorer? Two minutes. Open Mozilla? Two minutes. Switch tabs in Mozilla? 90 seconds.

Tip #2: if you are stuck with said laptop, make sure it dual boots to Windows ME so you can actualy get some work done.

Who knew the day would come when I preferred ME to XP?

    Wow. 64MB. I thought it was bad enough when my windows machine at work got upgraded to XP and only had 128MB of RAM. With 256, it's ok, but I don't use that machine much anyway.
