    A small step for an old geek....

    Today - i upgraded my PC to from 1 ......

    GB to 2GB of RAM :-)

    I know - your thinking that's 1.875GB more than's needed to run Win98SE but what the heck - I had a good month and thought I'd treat myself

    regards
    Simon
    It was because the Android app development prog Eclipse is so much of a memory hog that the computer was spending more time swapping to disc than actually doing anything.

    It is troubling that I feel I have to ask... Are you really still running 98SE on your home PC?

    That's nothing, I'm going a hypervised cluster of RISC OS supercomputers running on an Amiga 500.
