Work today involved buying a new DSL modem and router and configuring them to work across the entire building. This was basically an eight-hour troubleshooting session. I saw a Best Buy ad for 1gb sticks of RAM for $35 and decided buying a couple would brighten my sour mood. They were surprisingly cheap, RAM is the oldest part of my computer, and I could use some more now that I'm designing full-page magazine ads for the DeltaPlex(!).
It sounded too good to be true, and it was. I bought DDR2, which I learned after a struggle, is not compliant with my DDR-based motherboard. At least the engineers shifted the pin a few millimeters so I wouldn't be able to turn it on and fry anything. I just couldn't win today.
