Alright another bit. Hopefully this is enough to get this over the line with the upgrades. You can never have enough memory, disk space or CPU power. So lets get those upgrades.

Cheers,

SSD's. Nah just joking :-) My last purchase in that area didn't work out too well.

If you can give us a quick total so we know if we've got there. Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? LOL

I seem to recall Matt was going to yank a couple of them because they were being problematic.

Jon.....
Your $10.00 donation is very welcome here. If that's what you feel you can or wish to donate, that is just grand.

I have been trying to impress that upon folks......
It's not like you can't show up for the party unless you have a large amount to give. It only takes 9 more just like you, and hey...we got another c-note in the kibble bowl!!

Thank you Jon.
