Can you imagine a Windows XP computer so darned laughably old and grizzled that it only has a half gig of RAM and only 37 gigs of harddrive? And get this: NO SOUND since 2004 when the Sasser worm somehow took the sound from my computer.
Talk about computer illiterate!!
Now imagine that same computer, still running SP1.
Yeah. Everyone on this board right now, is prostrated out on their office floors all over the world, laughing their 8sses off. Some of you are in acute danger of suffocation because you are laughing so hard at my plight.
You've heard of Darwinian candidate for stupid, but you've NEVER heard of someone like me ever before.
Well there's always a first time.
Why am I still using such an OLD, ARCHAIC computer? Maybe I should use an abacus?
I can't afford a new computer. I got vacant houses all around me on my block. No, I don't live in Detroit. I'm just plain poor.
I know it's real hard to imagine.
Everyone in America has a desktop computer with at least 8 gigs of DDRAM and about 850 gigs of hard drive. And they have not had to learn to make do with no sound on their computer for over 6 years. I read voraciously because I can't hear a thing on presentations to save my life.
Some folks are toting around laptop computers with 250 gigs of hard drive and about 4 gigs of DDRAM.
Then you have me with my humble old anachronism from 1325, a computer so old it is STILL RUNNING SP1!!!!!!
Amazingly it still runs.
Oh what should I do?
I have about 20 gigs of free memory. Do I stand a chance in a billion years of actually being able to successfully update my computer to SP2? I've heard that SP3 is a HUGE file.
Or should I just get off the Net ASAP, go back to reading print books and forget the Internet until 2070 when the economy finally recovers?
EDIT: Amended the title to something a bit more useful lol
