    New RAM just arrived.

    After waking up with coffee & ciggs., I'll install it.

    In case I get electrocuted or the computer explodes, I'll say bye in advance.

    Got it installed.
    Cleaned the fan as long as I had it open.

    Half way through the operation a bomb went off.

    I set up 3 gallons of wine to ferment.
    The lid on 1 was too tight.
    It blew up with tremendous force & noise.

    It un-nerved me.

    Now I'll cleanup the mess...

    Oh no. Ive seen and heard that before.

    here are the steps to fixing your issue:

    1. Change pants. Its much easier to clean up when you're not walking funny.
    2. DO NOT get on your hands and knees with a straw to clean the floor
    3. Sing "whistle while you work" disney song while occupied. No reason for this but if you could video it and upload it to youtube, hits will be in the 1000's
    4. Enjoy new ram!

    We all have our minor problems.
    After all it's a small world.



    I am still grateful for your pictures of a Gateway computer.
    Once the side was off it was easy.

    I used to have an Emachine.
    The innards were the same.
    Adding the RAM was simple.
    Videos play better now.

    Another thing I noticed was CPU usage.
    It dropped a lot.
