18 December 2012 - 05:14 AMYup you can only use 4 x 2gb memory sticks (or two 4gb sticks) (RAM should be used in pairs)
Your ET1331G-03w System Specs
Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 8GB
Also it depends on what type of OS you are using. If its 32 bit it wont use more than 4gb of RAM anyway so getting more is pointless.
You can find this out if you go to the Start Button (the windows icon in bottom left).. Right click on Computer and select properties. It should tell you your system type in there.
This is a thing you should certainly get: OS (Win7 I guess) 64bit ... other wise all above 4gig is wasted money. The ram slots are paired (mostly two white colored and two black colored ...could be blue or red too, depends on the board) Make sure u use the same brand in the pairs (2 the same in the whites, 2 the same in the black ) ... other wise you could get a piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

14 December 2012 - 04:29 AMAs the calender in my example only operates to a minimum unit of a day then a millisecond error would have no noticeable effect and it would take an extremely large number of these occurrences to make the calendar inaccurate. I agree that, if we were looking at producing a calendar which was required to be accurate to the level of a chronometer then that would be a different matter and in which case you would be correct.
Also there is no specific requirement for a calendar to be directly related to the rotation of the earth, we chose to do so because that is how the calender as we understand it evolved and it fits into our daily lives (or to be accurate - we choose to chart our daily lives by it)
you said you wanted to make a calender for infinity ... that is a long term calendar...no?
14 December 2012 - 01:36 AMOf course you can write a calender that goes on forever. A calender is just a numerical series to represent the passing of time. All numerical series can be extended to infinity.
Assuming a starting point of 1st January 0000 and using our current system, once we complete the first cycle (i.e we reach 31st December 0000) we then repeat the cycle but increase the year series by 1 so that it then becomes 1st January 0001. This cycle can be extended an infinite number of times as we can never reach 1st January infinity.
Obviously the universe will have ended by that time (I'm ignoring more complex physics theories of space time.)
Of course not!
There was this big earthquake that slowed down the earth rotation for a few miliseconds. There, your calculations is already wrong.
