It was when I realized that my computer had no internet connection.. no dial up no nothing. Then I got a new comp. Then it was when I realized that 64mb wasn't enough for visual basic.net to be run. Then I got a new comp. And then here I am now...

I realized it when I would right click My Computer and then click properties. It always said Pentium 3, 128MB PC-133 SD RAM, my hdd only had 12.7GB on it, I had windows 98, a Video card made by SiS with 8MB memory on it. Yeah I think that's when I realized, I need a new computer.

Or as some of my friends do, they build a new system everytime a new OS comes out from Microsoft.
