    closer.

    now hold a penny in front of the computer and snap a pic with the penny and the computer in the same photo and you'll have a penny pic.

    Do you use the computer for something special or is it for daily use, I just ask because that seems like overkill.

    If your insulted by the comments in your other thread or even here, you really might want to check out the /Yourself link before it gets too rough.

    Otherwise take it with a grain of salt and move on, most of us have heard enough BS and learned to question anything that sounds too good or in this case too much of a good thing. If your too new to know this was going to happen, I would suggest doing some serious reading before posting...

    By the way you did not post the operating system??

    remember:
    "its not the size of the tool, its how you use it ;)"

    oh spec: do you get a lot of pussy from that? do chicks line up for miles asking to see your "tool" :naughty:

    No, they liked to flock to my Trans-Am and my old Ducati when I had it. (do i have to post a pic of this shit too?)
    Now that I am engaged, those days of "playing the field" are long gone.
    You reach a certain age and realize bragging about pussy to your friends isn't as cool as it was in high school. You'll get there, don't worry. :bigthumb:

    speaking of tool, nice lyrics in your sig.;)

    According to Microsoft:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315335&Product=winxp
    The recommended RAM to run Windows XP is 128 megabytes (MB). The minimum is 64 MB, and the maximum is 4 gigabytes.

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=286463 (XP PRO Specific)
    128 megabytes (MB) recommended (64 MB of RAM minimum; 4 gigabytes (GB) of RAM maximum)

    Architectural component
    64-bit Windows Virtual memory 16 terabytes
    32-bit Windows Virtual memory 4 GB

    Virtual Memory
    This is a method of extending the available physical memory on a computer. In a virtual memory system, the operating system creates a pagefile, or swapfile, and divides memory into units called pages. Recently referenced pages are located in physical memory, or RAM. If a page of memory is not referenced for a while, it is written to the pagefile. This is called "swapping" or "paging out" memory. If that piece of memory is then later referenced by a program, the operating system reads the memory page back from the pagefile into physical memory, also called "swapping" or "paging in" memory. The total amount of memory that is available to programs is the amount of physical memory in the computer in addition to the size of the pagefile.

    Windows 2000 Advanced Server supports a maximum of 8 GB of RAM.
    Obviously the 2003's Enterprise and 64-bit OS's can handle more... But unless he is using them he is at the least wasting the memory. (I have been told that 6 gigs on XP Pro will not even boot but I have never tried it - W2k Stand alone will boot but only show 4 gigs..)
