Not sure how to get in touch with Ajay but, the 64-bit Win7 part is free! If he just installs a 64-bit version of Win7 from a friend or whoever, he can use his "32-bit" CD key and use it perfectly fine. The CD key is for Home-Premium or Ultimate or Professional, NOT specifically a 32 or 64 bit version. Hope that solves at least one problem! =)

I'm one of those who threw in the towel on the pixel chase, but I can so readily identify with the author.
I built all my own machines from about 2000-2009. After that I went store-bought because it just wasn't worth all the extra effort to me, but I'm happy for those that do. Without them, the progress of technology wouldn't happen and we'd all be using Pentium 3's.
Love the article.. I feel your pain.. I'm listening to my 2008 build machine grinding away right now (just how much cat hair CAN a motherboard take..??) and know I'm not far from having to do the upgrade dance.

Nicely written article.
To this day I sit with a knot in my stomach after replacing RAM and cards etc. That tense minute where you power on and pray it will all work as it should!
I remember my Mum bringing EAW back from England for me. It was a repeat of the above scenario. Installing it and then praying it would work. I haven't played it in a very long time but I can still feel the elation of seeing those Mustangs lining up and taking off for the very first time.
