Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Stating What Should Have Been Obvious
Just because a computer is five years old doesn't mean that it won't benefit hugely from an extra gigabyte of memory. I can't believe it took me so long to make the move. Of course, I paid hundreds of dollars less than I would have a few years back. But think of all the hours of frustration I had waiting for the machine to execute tasks. The most surprising thing is how much quieter and cooler it's running now.

I think we play such interesting games with our computers. We dance around them hoping that we can manipulate them into doing things (or not doing things) until we convince ourselves to pay for something that will fix the problem.

It is almost like we forget that they are machines and can not be manipulated in some ways. I feel like this is even more true now that I'm working in a software company.

Right. I mean, I've known for a long time that memory might help the problems I've been having. But I preferred to dream about new machines instead of spending $100 to make the one I already have run the way it should.
