Thanks to the brilliance of Carleton’s step-brother and a Knoppix disk, we were able to discover that my computer’s ailments were due to bad RAM (unfortunately for me, it was the larger stick of RAM). We swapped it out with another smaller stick we had available, just so that my computer won’t hurt itself trying to run Windows XP on 128 MB of RAM, but I’m still glad to find that was the problem rather than something wrong with the cpu itself.

I still think I spend too much of my free time on the computer, though (even though I spend considerably less time on it than I ever have, that time in proportion to my overall amount of free time is much higher, and thus it is a much bigger nuisance.)

One thought on “Whew!”
