Cooking on more gas

I’ve just added a new memory module to the laptop, courtesy of Crucial. It now means I have 512MB of RAM rather than 256MB. While I haven’t noticed a huge performance increase yet, having a bit more RAM can’t hurt 🙂 .

    4 1mb SIMMS, and they wee installed with utmost care for static discharge. Fast forward to today and i have 10 old pc units in pieces at home – and they are worth peanuts.
