The Daily Grind: How old is your gaming machine?
The other day I was perusing my digital photo albums to look for pictures for Mother's Day. It was then that I spotted unboxing photos from my current desktop computer, and I realized that I had purchased this sometime between the births of my first and second kids. That put the computer's age in the four-plus range, which stunned me. Is it that old? I've been thinking about upgrading for a while, but I didn't think it was already outside of the three-year lifespan that I usually ascribe to my main machine.

I guess I didn't notice because I've never had problems running MMOs on that computer (a newer graphics card certainly helped). It does concern me that there might be a day coming when my system requirements are sub-par, however.

How old is your gaming machine? Do you have a top-of-the-line 2014 model or are you playing World of Warcraft on a TRS-80?
