Especially for tecchy folkies.........

A simple story of Bible folk..............
And it came to pass after these things that God did test Abraham. And He 
said to him, "Abraham!" And Abraham replied, "Hineni (here I am)."
And He said, "Take your computer, your old computer, your 286, and install 
upon it an operating system, a new operating system, Windows 95, which I 
will show to you."
And Abraham rose up early in the morning , and saddled his ass. He loaded 
his computer, his old computer, his 286, on the ass. And he took two of his 
young men with and Isaac his son,. And he rose up and went to the place 
where God had told him, there to find Windows 95.
Then on the third day, Abraham lifted his eyes and saw Windows 95 from 
afar. And Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the ass, and I and 
the lad will go yonder and load Windows 95 on our 286, and come again to you."
And Abraham took his computer, his old computer, his 286, and laid it on 
Isaac his son. And they went both of the together.
And Isaac spoke to Abraham, his father, and said, "My father." And he 
replied, "Hineni, here I am my son."
and Isaac said, "Windows 95 requires far more memory than a 286 has, how 
will it possibly run on your machine?"
And Abraham looked at his son, his only son, whom he loved, and he shook 
his head slowly, and perfect faith and with unswerving trust and belief in 
the Almighty, he said, "Fear not Isaac, my son." 
"..........................God will provide the RAM."
