I remember back in 1984, I had a Radio Shack Color Computer that could run a very early version of Flight Simulator. But the sim required 32K of system RAM back then. Not 32 megs or 32 gigs of memory, mind you -- but 32K. But my computer only had 4K of memory -- that's 4096 bytes. I simply couldn't afford 32K of memory. And if inflation continues, I may once again be in that predicament.
