My System Specs

Default

Before I got my quad I was using a Pentium III 600MHz running 98SE, 128mb ram, 32mb vidcard, connected to my cable modem via a USB cable. I started hanging around HWC because it was one of the sites that wouldn't hang the system, the google ads were the one problem and I had to keep hitting the refresh button to get them to load. Old Faithful still runs well but I'm glad those days are done...

Actually, the ad on the bottom of the forum is only supposed to display to unregistered users. I'll look into that tomorrow.

The only place it shows to registered users is when they are directly viewing a specific thread, on the rest of the website there is no ad showing at the bottom.
