IMG_0015 Yesterday I put 2 gigs of RAM in my computer as a late Christmas present to myself, giving myself 4 gigs total.

I think back to the first computer my dad bought 12 years ago. It had 8 megs of ram and a 1.6 gig hard drive.

My current hard drive checks in at 300 gigs.

It amazes me how much things have advanced in that time.

And yes, my computer’s running much faster now.

Dude, my first computer had 1K of RAM. That's right, ONE KILOBYTE. 1,024 bytes of memory. It had no hard disk, and its CPU ran at 3.25 MHz. You kids have had it too easy ;-)
