    contemplating contacting her to inform her of true meaning of CPU acronym.

    judging by the archaic animated gifs, i pray this site is at least 10 yrs old.

    Cant wait to read the intermediate and expert level guides!

    the C.P.U. (or 'motherboard' as it is more commonly known)
    A C.P.U.'s speed is measured by the amount of busses it has.
    There are three main types of chips, Celeron, Pentium and A.M.D. There are no distinct differences between the three, just different brands
    Every Hard drive has a unique IP address.

    /edit/ I just sent her an e-mail asking her to either correct it, or remove it

    When i read your quote's i thought you had to be kidding. I didn't read anything she wrote down there. But she really did write it. Found another one, apparantly you can steal someone ip
    Some hackers however, have found ways to steal peoples IP address by using special virusses called trojan horses.

    I just lost 1000 more brain cells just reading that, Thanks. Central Programming Unit Wow and all this time I thought it ment Central Proccessing Unit, and that a CPU is a Motherboard, not a chip that is seated on the MoBo. Holy molly give this kid a job at Microsoft. LOL

    I think I will use that site for future laughs... Im really suprised that this kid was able to make this joke of a site.

    I don't think it is.

    the standard amout of R.A.M. for todays home P.C.s is about 512 mgb of R.A.M.
    Hard drives come in a range of sizes, but the standard for today is about 80 gb.
    10 years ago, I don't think 512 mb of RAM or an 80 gb hdd was even practical.. Unfortunately, I think this site is moderately recent.

    This page made me cry. My eyes hurt so bad from the colors and information
    I'm 128 bits of awesome packed into a 64 bit address space.
