My one and only PC is patchwork. It's a 350MHz Pentium 2 with 320 MB of RAM, some old parts from my previous PC and things I added lateron. I shall maintain it until it falls to pieces. And I still own my good old Commodore 64. I spent many hours programming it in assembler years ago, I still do so occasionally. It recently broke down for the third time in 18 years, but I intend to repair it again!

Nice! What operating system do you run? Much of the open-source software is great on such old machines.

And I know it's a typo, but 'lateron' sounds so much like the next chip from Intel :wink:

So you think it was a typo? Well, being a moderately good English speaker, I thought it was English! :wink:

About the old machine: Windows98 runs well on it, for as far as Windows runs well on any machine. It's not out of date.

I have installed a boot manager and some RedHat Linux version, but I haven't found the time to make myself familiar with Linux yet. :o

OK, not criticising here, but I think you missed the space between 'later' and 'on', hence 'lateron'. Oh, this probably doesn't make sense to anyone except me, but that's how I saw it.

Well, if it works, keep it. I appreciate that learning Linux takes a while, so I just count myself lucky that it counts as work for me, so I get a whole 40 extra hours a week to play :D

Oops! I didn't mean to to be pedantic or teach you English!

I suppose I failed to explain I had already realized my error. I meant to say I mistakingly thought 'lateron' is proper English.

That's OK. No problem.

It amuses me how we can tie ourselves up in knots over this English stuff. And I ought to know better, being as English is my first and so far only language :wink:
