"64 Bits ONLY...."

Post by fern » Tue Sep 30, 2014 4:04 pm

Death to those that ONLY produce for the rich people that cannot tolerate a computer one week old.
Death to those that even not being rich fall to every novelty in the shells...

This is a gypsy malediction and very strong.
Beware.

Only if you deliver 32 stuff you can save your souls
This was my last warning.


from my rumanian palace regards

O powerful castellan,

May I meekly ask how old is your computer?

Don't know how old it is, but I'll bet it has "Made by Mattel, it's swell" stamped on the back. :)

But seriously, even new smart phones are 64 bits.

Well, I have several:
An Armada lap-top from 1998, loaded with W95. No used
A Vio lap top around 2003 or 4. loaded with Ubuntu. No used.
Another lap top around 2005. W8. Scarcely used.
A desk top armed by me, internals of about 2007 or 8
another one, HP bough second hand, around 2009
a tablet y that I almost never use
Desk top are loaded with W7-

I just play chess, see internet and write. Why should I need something else?

No, he said he had w8 on a 2005 laptop. He could have done the install yesterday, for example. Still a 2005 laptop.

Yes, as simple as that....
I forgot to mention that in my family they does have last things in comps that I purchase them.
It is me the one that was raised in an age when the idea was to fix things, not to throw them just because a new one was available.
I cannot beat that tropism...

Bob:
I drive a 1999 car because it runs very well, so I cannot imagine a reason to expend money to get a new one. You are of my age, you should understand me...
