    Yay, I've made Google usable on a 80x25 display.

    Edited:

    If I can find a good API for google search and Gmail, I will so make them nice to use on my old PC.

    because lack of buying power. Stock is lower, manufacture costs are expensive due to lack of bulk and it's easier for stores to sell it without losing money to sell it for more.
    I know all that
    I'm still pissed that I'd need to spend $50 on 2x 2GB.
    I might just ask some friends if they have some spare DDR2 they're not using.

    Hookey is boring. Read a book. Namely a short stories one. Namely Call of Cthulhu.

    fucking hell why is DDR2 so expensive
    My mom wants me to build a new computer for her for the cheapest I can do
    I have plenty of spare parts except for a cpu cooler and RAM it seems..and 4GB of DDR2 is nearly $50 or more. I could buy a new motherboard for that much...
    Thought you were looking at bad stores but after taking a look

    The fuck, I just bought 4GB DDR3 for like $28. Why would DDR2 be more expensive then DDR3. Should it not be the other way

    And once again i miss the fact that there is a new page. Ah, might as well keep the post

    Hockey is where you hit pucks with sticks, then drop the sticks and beat up the people you hit the puck to.
    Books are better.

    It's just supply. Very little DDR2 is being manufactured, if any at all. Low supply for the systems that still need DDR2 = higher prices.

    Well...

    I had started writing a big post on process nodes and die sizes and shit (seriously, it was like a page long), but then I noticed that they have DDR2 being made even today at the same process size that DDR3 is being made on, so it can't be that.

    It's probably just supply/demand. It's a smaller market with fewer competitors, so they charge higher prices.

    A woodchuck would chuck no amount of wood since a woodchuck can’t chuck wood.

    The wood chuck can chuck wood, but the amount is not determined.
    Amount of wood a wood chuck can chuck >= 0.

    Oh hey, I have a question for y'all.

    What's a good AV program for the Mac? With the recent boom in Mac malware (macware?), I figure I should at least know of one *before* I need it. I probably won't run it in the background constantly, like I do on Windows, but I figure I should have one at least ready to install when the inevitable happens.

    ClamAV has a Mac port, there's a Kaspersky for Mac, and Avast! has a Mac version, though it seems to be a bit less feature-rich than the Windows one

    Last time I used Clam (on Windows XP), it sucked. I got more viruses while using it than when I ran with no AV on Vista. It's fast and light, and probably great for corporate email/web proxy filtering, but I don't trust it for desktop protection.

    Bookmarked the other two; I'll DL once I actually suspect I have an infection. I'm probably just being paranoid.
