Brief amature history of PCing - not serious
Year about 1993, on a 286 perhaps, I spend an hour downloading a tiny fix via land line. The I spend an hour installing and getting it to work. Two hours an I am back on Gardenweb - or whatever - did we have Gardenweb in 1993?
[Then time passes.]
Now it is 2013. with a fairly new HP. I turn the machine to the message that they are sending me 5 upgrades and almost a half hour later it says it is installing 8493 updates! Two hours later I am back on Gardenweb.
[What happened in 20 years?]
---The computer is about $2000 cheaper - and it plays DVDs.
---I don't pay AT&T a monthly fee for a land line.
---I can go to therapy for two hours and let the machine fix itself,
