A Gateway scan of my computer comes up with this:


=================================================================
Memory Upgrade Information
System Serial Number: 002982xxxx

Motherboard Part Number: 2517888

Type of Memory Modules (shipped): RIMM Continuity Module (C-RIMM)
==================================================================


I have 512 meg Rimm memory

I'm having trouble finding 1G Rimm Memory.

Do I just wait till FS10 and get a new computer and use this one as a
second computer running 2 monitors. I think I'll explain to Gabriella
that it's all I can do. :)

Well, she already seems to have accepted your incessant downloading,
and even still loves you in spite of it, so perhaps if you can come
up with a good enough story, you may just get away with it! :-) Just
in case, don't forget the flowers and a shiny new notebook for her!

I'm counting on at least another two years out of the two year old I'm
running on, and that'll be a record for the last decade!!

Ha!.. you just reminded me of how I cost justified the last computer upgrade
to my wife.

I used the "standard female shopping logic formula":

On Sale: You can't believe how much money I saved upgrading this computer,
it would have cost twice as much if I had paid retail!

Bartering: You remember I fixed the dishwasher... if we had called someone
to fix it... it would have cost as much as this computer upgrade.

Ahead of fashion: There will come a time when everyone will want one and
we'll already have it.

Dealing with these Venus types takes some acclamation time, but if you just
take careful notes and do what they do, you can confound them. :-)

Except mine takes careful notes too, and I'm running out of
"justifications"........
Anymore it's down to pure bribery: "Yes dear, you can get what ever you
want - just show me the receipts so I can have 'equal opportunity' with the
Visa"
Unfortunately, she won't accept things like a brake job and new tires on
'her' car as part of the deal..... d:-<))

RIMM is the form factor for RAMBUS memory. What you have is probably
PC800. The good news is that it's still widely available. The bad news is
that it's about US$450/GB. I wouldn't upgrade anything which uses RAMBUS
modules - too much cost for the benefit gained. Better to just wait it out
and go for a new box later.

<sigh> My little German -DO IT MY WAY - young wife has her way. When we
got married we bought a couple of duplex's and after a couple years we
then sold them at twice the price we paid. That plus the net rent money
we took in and selling my house in town for quite a profit to build one
here in the country left quite a sum in the bank. I don't know how she
did it, our house was built in the fall of 2000 and by 2004 we had paid
the 30 year mortgage off along with the vehicle loans and all credit
cards. She uses a credit card that gives money back for everything and
pays in full every month. We have absolutely no debt (Except -
insurance, gas and the like) I don't know how she did it, but I don't
mess with it. :)  I will have to beg a bit but it has to be something
that can be paid off the next month. Do you realize how much money we
are saving with no interest payments for anything. I don't either, but
I think it's a lot!! When FS10 comes out she will not complain TOO
much. :)

Actually, I really got lucky with my first one... she's one of those types
where your buddies say, "Wow, how did *you* get that one?" :-(

Our secret was to date for 12 years before getting married.

Unlike the others, Gabriella is a keeper. :) 

PHX, I went to some meetings there at McDonald Douglas on the Apache
Longbow. It's hot in Texas but I was returning to the hotel about 11pm
and I rolled down the window on the rental car. It was like an oven, I
closed the window and turned the AC back on.

Those were definitely very good! When I was living in Arizona, I could
often fry an egg right on the hood of the car. Just amazing! And no need
to sand blast anything. As mother nature had taken care of that. And
that's the only place I know where paint on a car is optional. And don't
forget the crack those side windows. As otherwise your windshield may
crack.


Cheers!

No worries there. I' staying right here in Texas, waiting for the whole
west coast to fall into the ocean and the mid Atlantic states to
submerge from Global warming. Then we'll have waterfront property.

Don't get me wrong. We love tourists. A little A-1 sauce, salt and pepper :)  Lightly turned on the spit. Gotta be
careful of the Killer Sea Gulls though, they always come around any BBQ.
