This page is a great place to provide information about how I
enjoy using computers in my spare time; I'll include information about how this
web site was created and other computer technologies that I've used to build my
site, like digital cameras, scanners, etc.
My name is PB-S610. I'm a 1997 model
Packard-Bell Computer, fully equipped with
a 233mhz Intel Pentium processor with MMX
technology, 4.3GB hard drive, 96MB Ram (upgradeable to 256MB), 56Kbps Voice/Fax
modem, 24X CD-Rom, 17" PB-7480 Monitor (15.9" viewable),
DeskJet 855c color inkjet printer, HP-SkanJet 4100c scanner, and accessorized
with a Phillips ESP80 1.4 megapixel digital camera. My Internet Access is
provided by Cox@Home digital
high-speed service ! ! !
Boy . . . . I'll say ! - Only a real computer
GEEK would even make it this far on this page ! Even I'm about to fall asleep .
. . and I'm the guy (geek)
writing it !! The point that I'm trying to make is how sophisticated computer
technology has become - especially in just the last few years. Several of the
terms used above didn't even exist five years ago. I mean, who would have
thought that "surfing" meant anything other than balancing yourself on top of a
board while an ocean wave chases you back to the beach? Or how about the "Web"
- That sticky stuff spiders weave in the middle of the night just to aggravate
you when you walk through it ??? - I don't think so !
We've come a long way . .
From bits - - to
bytes - - to kilobytes - -
to megabytes - - to gigabytes
