New Computers

Now that I've got my hearing aids, and I'm between trips to Milwaukee, I thought this would be a good time to update my computers. To that end, I bought a new laptop, and have just ordered a new desktop.

The laptop is a Lenovo 3000 Y410. I bought replacement RAM for it, which I'd love to install tonight. That'll give me 4 gigs of Ram.Remember when 4 megs was a lot? Shoot, I remember when 4K was the norm.

My new desktop will be a DellDimension 9200. They're saying the estimated ship date is May 26, I'm praying it's earlier than that.
