whee computer
children of dune - leto 1
Got the new RAM for mine and Mom's computers--I didn't realize hers was only 512K or seriously, I would have fixed this problem a long time ago. So everyone but Child is maxed, and his runs so cleanly now I probably don't need to bother.

Which brings me to this:

Um, does anyone need any RAM by any chance? I have no real understanding of the differences between computers, but we have now a few 512K and two 256K that are kind of mouldering, all from Dell. Should I just donate or does anyone by any chance want to give it a good home? I was thinking the Goodwill computer store (and can I just express my joy that I can finally get rid of some of the stuff I still have lying around here? I hate to throw it away, because it still *works* fine, I just upgraded, but it's--beginning to take over the house and acquire some kind of rudimentary intelligence).

I also have no idea how to read the types, but I think they are all DDR2, for laptop and for desktop.

But seriously. 4G is like--wow. All--smoothly moving and things loading fast and I'm testing this week with some of my heavier programs to see if I can get them to not suck resources like [removed indecent Cruel Intentions reference].

Work is--weird. I really want to post on it, but I have no idea what I'd say other than gape and wonder if this is supposed to be as frightening and inexplicably counterintuitive as it is.

In other news, there is no other news. It's almost sad.

If you want to get rid of the PC RAMs I'll take them!!! I'm looking into upgrading my PC since it's quite old, currently it's crawling on 512k too.

I'll find the types nad post them tomorrow or Wednesday so you can see if they are compatiable.

If cyberwitch13666 doesn't want or need all of whatever you have I'd gladly take the leftovers from your hands.

I'll post the types tomorrow or Wednesday so you can see if they're compatible.

*waves!* Me too, if there are any left over? :)! I was thinking of upgrading when I got back to school.

I will take laptop RAM - I will check your post tomorrow.

There should be a label on them that says what type they are, usually expressed as 'DDR333' or 'PC2700' - both types of DDR RAM @ a clock speed of 333MHz. If it is DDR2, it'll say 'PC2-XXXX'.

I assume the laptop ones are SODIMMs style ones - taller and not as wide as what you took out of the PC. I point this out because people actually don't seem to be stating a preference. However, these won't fit most desktop configurations.
