The topic: So, today I’ll add RAM

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

to two of the computers.  Since Brian’s did so well, you know.

I’ve turned off the computer that runs the backyard, office and patio cams.  I’m letting it cool a little before I open it up.  It only has 256MB of RAM.  I’ll be upgrading it to 2G.  A huge difference.

I’m getting myself mentally prepared. And I’m going to drink a Zipfizz. We get the powder at CostCo. It comes in a box with three different flavors.  Each flavor has a different colored plastic container.  There’s an orange container, which is orange flavored, a pink container, which is pink lemonade flavored, and purple container, which is purple flavored.

The box says it’s “grape” flavored.  No, it isn’t grape.  Like the grape soda in a can isn’t grape.  Like the “grape” flavored candies are not grape. They’re all purple.  But they are not grape.

In my fifty-six years of life, I’ve never tasted a grape that tastes like these things that are purported to be “grape flavored”.  I do not like these purple flavored things. I really like grape juice.  I like grape jelly.  Hell, I even like grapes.

But I do not like “purple” flavoring.  It’s just nasty.

================================================
UPDATE: 11:12AM
================================================

I’m done.  From opening up the computer case, removing the old RAM and installing the new RAM, to closing the case and hooking everything back up, it took less than fifteen minutes.  Right now I’m installing the TrendMicro security upgrade. The old one needs to be removed, the computer rebooted, the new one installed, the computer rebooted and it will be good to go. I love it when something goes so smoothly.

One more computer to go.
