Comments: More memory and faster video


Today Esme and I went out to buy some hardware for our computer. I already had upgraded the computer with an extra 256M some time ago, it originally had just 128M. However, when I was using the computer I still managed to make it swap a lot.

Read the rest of More memory and faster video.


Oh wow! I'm happy for you getting more RAM and new video card :D So you have 512 + 265 MB RAM now? I didn't know you're into game(s) at all. I used to play strategy games a lot, but not for some time now... i have nVidia GeForce FX 5600 here and i dont think i ever used it for "good graphics demanding games" (maybe Colin McRae rally)

512 + 256 MB, so 768 in total. It's hard to believe that I learned to program on a computer with just 16 kilobyte (!).

I play rarely games. Some time ago I played some MSN puzzle games a lot (like Alchemy) as you probably remember. But I think Quake, and Quake II, are the only action games I actually finished, and even more then once.
