The topic: Keep your fingers crossed

----------------------------------------------

because at some point today, I will be shutting down Brian’s computer, opening it up, removing the current RAM and installing two 1G each RAM cards, quadrupling his current RAM.  And his system should run much more quickly. 

I know it’s not a big deal to do this, I’ve played around on the insides of my other computers.  But it’s not something I do often enough to be comfortable doing.

But I know he’ll sure like it when he starts up the next time.  He’s not home today, just left for the property.  It’s easier to do things I need to concentrate on when he’s not home.

I went to the Dell website to buy the memory and the next day got an email that they’d cancelled the sale. No reason why, just cancelled it. So, I spent an hour or so online looking for another place that sells memory. My order to Dell was for one gig.  For an additional twenty dollars, I was able to double the amount (this is max for his machine) of RAM.  The thing that kind of has me worried is their website came up with a different type of RAM than I found on the Dell website for that machine (which I’d registered and it shows what the machine came with and what I need to upgrade).  I went with a comparable mem card to the one on the Dell site, not the one on the site where I ordered the memory.  I hope this doesn’t come back to bite me on my backside.

I need about three more cups of coffee before I begin. 

So, keep your fingers crossed it all goes smoothly.
