Finally got 2GB

This is because I want to exercise this memory...because the purchase experience didn't go entirely smoothly.

The day after I had paid for the memory, eBay cancelled the auction and deleted the seller. This had me really worried. It seemed to be taking forever for the item to arrive, I didn't even know if it ever would.

But, it eventually did materialize. I waited for the weekend to do the memory swap.....but it didn't work.

First time I booted, it said the PC3200 memory was only 266MHz (instead of 400MHz)....adjusted the DIMMs, it then reported them as only 333MHz...and worse it reported memory errors. The machine does slow boot....

I was mad.....>:-(

So, I went on to PayPal and opened a resolution case....and blew off the rest of my weekend, trying to keep my mind off of everything. XX(

It was difficult, later I saw an response to send it back for exchange, etc. So, I sent it off and next day the seller called me to confirm that I had sent it and that I would take exchange of memory. And, he then sent off the replacement memory.

Last night I found it in my mailbox. 88|

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
