I'm king of the world!

I feel like such a manly man right now. I just managed to change the ram in this laptop without causing the computer to break or doing myself any severe bodily injury. That last part is not an absolute guarantee. The last time I tried to change the ram in a desktop back in Chicago I accidentally set my hair on fire. This might be the only full blown success I've ever had in this area. It's for that reason that I usually never open up a computer of any sort if I can help it. It has never gone well before.

I had been thinking about picking up a new laptop with some of the great deals around black friday but couldn't justify the cost, especially since this one is less than a year old. As a compromise, I found a deal on ram and picked up an upgrade for $15 (after a $35 rebate). I had been running into some performance problems lately with opening too many windows in firefox and getting lag. I'm hoping that this will fix the problem and that it's not a processor issue. I hope to be able to play Starcraft II on this sucker when it comes out. I already placed a pre-order for it at Circuit City and assuming they won't go out of business, I should pick get it near the release date. It's the only time I've bought a computer game within 6 months of its entry into the marketplace. I usually end up waiting nowadays until it's in the discount bin if at all. With all the DS and PSP games, I almost never use the PC for gaming.

Anyway, I'm overjoyed about the ram thing. I'll probably update in the next day or two as to whether there's any uptick in performance.
