If you buy/register Opera, there is no ad. ;)
Yes, but why would I buy a browser if I can get one for free?
If you look carefully, you *can* use it for free and no ad... ;)

You mean, if you search carefully. Yes, I know, the Opera on Win95 has no ad. ::)

If you don't want to use Opera, that's OK. I just like taking any opportunity to sing Opera's praises that I can (pun intended). ;D

Wow, you guys all are blowing me away. ;)

I have an AMD K6-2 350 MMX (equivalent of a PII, I think), 128MB RAM, 7GB hard drive, an ATI Rage LT Pro 4MB card, and Windows 98 (dunno if it's SE or not).

Yeah, I wish I had the money for an upgrade. :P

Actually, my computer isn't that much better than yours :-\

It may be crappy, but it does pretty much everything I need... mostly because I don't need anything fancy  :S

Ok, I guess the who’s “you know” is bigger then whose thing only sort is interesting. Though my NMR wins!

I think it’d be lots of fun to see pictures of folks PC’s... being a Tec I’m constantly amazed by how folks keep and set-up their stuff.  

We have only Prof at my college who became so concerned that her PC (with important research on it) was going to be moved that she drew all over the it (mostly personal phone numbers and such) so that it could never be moved to anybody

Well, there's this midi-tower next to my computer desk, above that is a 17 inch LCD monitor. Besides that (literally, so to the side of it), on my computer desk, there's a M$ ergonomic keyboard and a Logitech dual optical mouse. Below the computer desk, there's lots of cables lying around, from both the new and the old computer. (In case you wonder why the new pc isn't in the computer desk, it's because the old pc still is.) 8)
The main reason why I bought a new pc was because the old pc couldn't play the newest adventure games. I had to resort to my work laptop to play Syberia! :o

My PC setting isn't that interesting... just a regular computer desk ;)

My computer is old, but I'm not going to upgrade it as long as I don't have any games or programs that require a stronger computer... right now it doesn't look like I'll be upgrading for a while :P

I am considering buying a CD burner though... but I don't know if the computer would be able handle it. Last time there was a burner on it, it hardly ever worked properly :-[

Was the CD burner a good brand?  Did your computer freeze a lot, or did the burner just always screw up and make "coasters".  ;D  Did you try using a different brand of CD-media?

I have a big supah-spiffy desk that Harrison bought me for either Christmas or my birthday, I forget which. In addition to my monitor, tower, speakers, mouse and mousepad, and printer, I also have my stereo, my CDs, most of my tapes, some computer books, my computer CD wallets, some stray game boxes I keep around because they look cool, and I still have room left over on top of it! (Well, when my cat isn't walking all over it, hee.) It's got a keyboard tray, one little cabinet on the left where I keep my printer paper and software manuals, a little cubbyhole on the right where I have my scanner when I'm not using it, and the power strip, and a drawer where I keep random things like my dictionary and thesauri and pens and bus schedules and whatnot. I also have a printout of the Sid Meier Alpha Centauri tech tree on the side wall. I totally <3 it. :) I'll take a picture tomorrow, I think.

Now if only the computer itself was as cool as my desk! :suffer: ...it's actually not a bad computer, to be honest... but I'd like to get something I can use for making DVDs, and I'd love to actually be able to play a few of the newer games out there. :P

Peace & Luv, Liz
