I vaguely remembered Bill Gates saying that 640K ought to be enough for anybody but I thought he was talking about money.

My wife's machine could use a WinPatrol license if she wins while I keep doing my own Linux patrolling.

I wasn't sure if the answer was nail or toe but since neither one was offer I would guess it is D. tail.

BTW: There is one question that is tricky! It's not the answer you think!

Certainly not the answer I thought it was!

 

And don't forget I can't say whether you win or not until two people answer correctly for a given question!

Question 7 - D - None of the above.

ESET

 

"Do you realize the pain the industry went through while the IBM PC was limited to 640K? The machine was going to be 512K at one point, and we kept pushing it up. I never said that statement — I said the opposite of that.

Thanks, Corinne. No, I did not see anything since - I've been checking my spam folder and had the eset email address you gave added to my contacts list. I will check my windows live (alternate address I listed) and let you know ,,, no, nothing there either.
