Our laptops at work are a little shy on memory and with Visual Studio w/ReSharper/Sql Server/IIS going all the time the hard drive light basically never goes off. On top of that, our laptop model has a reputation for hard drive failures. We’ve tried to ask our IT guy for RAM upgrades and been told that the upgraded memory would be too expensive, end of story. Jeffrey finally got fed up this morning and found a pretty reasonable price on 1 gig memory cards at Frye’s. He explained it to me this morning as being like the “Tell, don’t ask” principle in code. I’m just going to go buy the memory now, and tell them about it later when I turn in the expense report.
