But seriously. No, really... seriously! I DID have to whittle RAM for this old P133... If you've ever worked on older PCs, you know that back in the early nineties the case and motherboard manufacturers' tolerances were REALLY shitty. This old piece was no exception - the little humps in the DIMM slots don't quite match up properly to the little notches in the DIMMs themselves. So after fighting the little bastard for half an hour, I finally pulled out my Victorinox and carved notches in the DIMMs to match the wrongly-placed humps in the motherboard slots.
I've done a LOT of impromptu sheet-metal work to make things fit in an older PC before... but swear to god, this is the first time I ever whittled a part to fit. Sigh.
