in thread A decade in the Monastery

I'm going from memory, and may well be wrong. It was an old laptop at the time, and was maxed out, or close to it, on (then very expensive) RAM. The point is, by 2010 standards it was incredibly puny.

    Hey, tell me about it:)

    My first disk based system (mid 80's) was an Amstrad CPC 6128 with 128K RAM, 160KB 3 inch floppies and 4MHz processor.

    I remember the Commodore PET, where FOR I=1 to 32767 : NEXT was considered an infinite loop (time wise)
