Although it is still in perfect working condition, my 4-year old PC is a senior citizen by technology standards!
I realized this a few months ago when my PC broke down. I had a wonderful technician (Thanks, Annamanila!) fix it. But he suggested that I upgrade my PC memory to a bigger one, so that it can easily accommodate all my blogging paraphernalia, games, and gazzillions of photos.
So I started making calls to almost all shops with “PC” on their names. Unfortunately, I learned that my motherboard version (I forgot the geeky term they used) is on the brink of extinction. Therefore, my memory upgrade won’t be that easy.
After several calls and hearing the same thing over and over, I gave up. Maybe I will just wait for the next conk out. Hopefully, by then, I’d have saved enough to buy me a new laptop. For now, I am content with my senior-citizen PC.
