Aka my computer system.
I am running (wait for it) a Pentium 266 with 64MB of RAM, Windows 98SE, a CD burner that the system can’t really handle, a floppy drive that doesn’t work, a DSL modem that works faster than my computer and USB ports that don’t work at all. Then there’s the dead Lexmark printer and the scanner purchased…. five or six years ago (it was old then).
So my nifty camera won’t speak to my computer (we have to use John’s laptop to get the pictures off), I can write, but not print, I can’t print onto fabric, I can upload photos, but loading a simple webpage or flickr pages takes as long as 63 seconds (I timed it) against John’s machine, which will do it in 6 seconds.
The whole works frequently goes gronk because I type and work faster than it thinks. I’ve lost how many(?) posts and emails because the works just freezes. My frustration has been such that I save up stuff to do on John’s machine when he gets home, which means that sometimes I don’t get to do whatever it is because he often uses his pooter for work in the evenings.
We need a new machine. And a new printer. Just a board, CPU and oodles of memory would do it.
