  • Once a Geek always a Geek

    When I lived at home in Hawaii I was the family Geek. If any family member had a problem with their computer, they came to me. I even built several computers for them and myself. I have been away from all that for over 5 years, so things have changed.

    A friend came to stay with us, she has a computer like none I have ever seen before. She was having trouble getting it running after moving it. The computer is only 4 inches wide, 13 inches deep and 12 inches high. I was amazed that they could cram so much computer in a case that size. Luckily, after reseating all the cables it started working. It looks like technology has passed me by when it comes to computers. My computer seems like a huge dinosaur compared to hers and hers is many times faster than mine. Hers boots in 5 seconds mine takes 2-3 minutes.

  • I take it that you are talking about a desktop computer as notebooks, netbooks, ultrabooks and tablets are much smaller. Kaiser Permanente, my HMO, has had such computers is all of the exam rooms for the last 5 years. They allow the doctors great flexibility in finding resources that they need. I believe the ones I've seen are made by Dell.

    The original Mac Mini was 6.5 x 6.5 x 2, contained an optical drive as well as a HDD. It was first available in 2005.

    • It's a desktop Falcon Tiki. I want one but can't afford it so I'll have to stick with my old dinosaur. Maybe I'll save up and upgrade dino so it's as fast as her tiki. Right now I can barely play The Sims 3 and have a lot of lag.

      • The Falcon Tiki looks like a nice system.
