LOL, comparing the size of our puters manhood huh????



Poor me.... I have one 2 Gig drive with Windows 2000 and Office XP, plus a few smaller Apps on it and a 4.3 Gig running XP and current favorite game or too. Most of my other stuff is on CD so I am not too worried about the size although I would like to do an upgrade sometime, but my system works so it isn't a priority.... Besides the wife always wants some thing if I upgrade, last thing was a dining room suite, groan......



I may be running small drives but at least they have a dynamite package...
