    Thank you, but I'm affraid it will not calm me down.
    It is very nice though. I am also very sad that I was not around when Windows 1.0 was released. I should've been in my 30s then and be in my 60s today.

    I agree that if the wish included unlimited funds (in today's dollars, Windows 1.0 cost $216, and a low-end computer was in excess of $4000), it would be cool to see the dawn of personal computing in person.

    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    dude.. please. computing is over, personal computing at least. in the future ypu will have something similar to thinclients. a machine that gets its processing power via remote connection. cheaper, faster and way easier to control by the GOVERNMENTS.

    there are many other ways of accessing such an age - in this world through memories, visions, dreams, research (of past times, your own or someone else's, in a sane state of mind or less so), sometimes even in the future if similar cycles follow, perhaps in a near future (through rebuilding of civilizations after major cataclysms, that aim towards the digital stage or computing) or far in the future (witnessing such events after many reincarnations), by getting reborn in other worlds that may have just entered a similar stage, etc.

    way easier to control by the GOVERNMENTS.
    or so many of them thought for thousands of years, yet control keeps slipping through their fingers, for it is not theirs to have (they may wish for it and then experience suffering when their expectations are not met and cause suffering while trying to reach for it)

    I sold a laptop and a cellular modem today

    All I need to do now is not spending the money in fancy gadgets I want but don't really need. When I first got a job I thought that wouldn't happen to me, but it seems I'm not invulnerable. I have to move out this year no matter what... something will work out.

    You're telling me lol. I ordered a keychain the other day, and bought 20 dollars of extra items to skip on the 3 dollar shipping costs...
    It's all stuff I can eventually use, but still. Damn you amazon!

    "We buy things we don't need, to impress people we don't like get free shipping." -- Tyler Durden[citation needed]

    I never have anything shipped home and always pay cash. Not abstracting things and having the item(s) take some effort from my side to get, as well as seeing "real" money go away in the purchase, helps me keep these spendings under control

    I did a house cleanup last month. It was pretty amazing to see how much stuff I own that I never really used, and in a few cases didn't even remember having. There is always some small reason to keep each and every item (it brings back memories/I "may" need it in the future), so I had to be harsh with myself and filter aggressively; one of the items for sale is my first laptop, which still works great after six years. In the end, though, it feels good to get rid of things I don't need and make some room in the process, which is an upside.

    Anyway, yesterday I sold a Sony Vaio which I never used, and I already have buyers interested on a netbook and a mobile phone.

    What I have already sent you is most of my collection; there are some more programs and games, but they're spread over multiple folders in a few disks. If I can find the time to fetch them all, I'll send them your way.

    True. Sadly you're stuck with the now-useless item after the realization, but hey, life's hard

    Buy smart. If that happens to overlap with expensive, then so be it. Remember that 1. it's not just what you've got, it's also how you sell it; 2. prices are partially influenced by how much sellers think you'll want to pay.

    ok, try this: has there ever been a time when a cheap item was better than an expensive item?
