Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to What kind of RAM to use?

Well, writing a column for Byte does NOT a computer expert make - I
would never suggest otherwise.  And I generally don't read his web
site at all for the computer-related content.  But for other topics,
his website is one of my all time favorites, DESPITE it's middling
disorganization, unattractiveness, etc.

But *if* Pournelle says he's tried other RAM brands over the years and
had failures, but never had failures with Crucial and Kingston, then
that seems like a useful, if entirely anecdotal, data point.
