    Can't believe I haven't been on this forum in 10 years.

    I started coming here in 2004 then disappeared around 06'. Surprised my account is still active. Anyone still here since then? If so, what's up. If not then hello.

If the box says 256 minimume then its misleading. If I had 1 gig ram then it would not have worked. Does any...
