@RobertQc Lol. Look at that price. I can't remember for sure, but I think I paid almost $200 for a 2 gig stick of ram!!

There hasn’t been anything in the past like that, as others mentioned, Public seems to stick more towards adding bonus data or other features to other plans as an incentive.

Then there is the thought that such a deal would bring in customers who are otherwise using 7-11 and Petro Canada mobile.  This brand has gone stale in recent times.  They watch what Chatr is doing and respond.  It doesn't hurt to try something different and be a leader again.  They can introduce the SMS add-on and see what happens.  They can withdraw it any time.

I like it. Ok public mobile. Do it! GO! @Alan_K Be a leader, get us some Add-On Promotions / SMS Add-ons... please and thank you Smiley Happy

Sigh, so many bins of "old" computer stuff that I should have sold when it was worth something. Anyone need some 72 pin SIMM's? Smiley Sad

 

 

 


FPM or EDO?  And are the contacts gold or tin?  Way back, there was talk about needing to match the contacts up on the SIMM modules with the type of contacts on the motherboard.  There was much debate at the time on it, but I believe it's fair to say that unless you're still using one of these computer systems, it really didn't matter. 

 

I also remember all the talk about the timeframe for the life of a CDR and how they would degrade over time.   The blank manufacturers didn't want us to know this at the time, but those 100 year life cycles really depended on optimum storage conditions.  Over time, I found that CDRs started becoming useless not because of the lighting or the color of the disc, but because the outer layers would start scratching up too much to be read, or even the layer would started peeling off. 

 

I miss needing to match those 72 pin SIMMs up in pairs.  At first, when I saw 'SIMM", I thought we were talking about SIM cards and it took me a moment to realize that we were talking about RAM modules.
