Nope, it was your attributing quotes to me that were not mine.

I did. 4GB is the minimum that *I* recommend. Do you not see the difference?

That one is easy to solve. Sell or give it away and get a new(er)

8 years is pretty much the end of the road for computers that start

loves tinkering with ancient tech.
