A couple of years ago, I was attempting to help my nephew get a game 
(Wolfenstein, I think) running on his father's PC. Not enough memory. 
He went out and told his father. Know-it-all brother-in-law came and 
wanted to know why it needed more memory, there was 200 megs free on 
C: It was difficult to explain to him the difference between hard 
drive and RAM without making him look like a dork in front of his 
son. I didn't succeed. He still doesn't talk to me much. ;-)
