The Millennium Falcon is one of the most iconic ships in the Star Wars universe and as such, is probably one of the most well known.  The hunk of junk that Princess Leia was so surprised to see Han Solo and Chewbacca providing her safe passage in, actually made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs making her one of the fastest ships in the galaxy.

Originally the Millennium Falcon was known as YT01300 492727ZED, Han and Chewie made a few modifications to their prized possession, a freighter that has a rich and varied history.  She has gone by many names in the past including Stellar Envoy and Bat-Falcon, until Han Solo won the ship in a game of Sabacc from Lando Calrissian.

The Millennium Falcon has fought in many pivotal battles including firing the shot that destroyed the Death Star.

 

Take good care of her, Solo. That ship saved my life quite a few times over the years.

    say… I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get anything
    done.

  4. One thing I’d really like to say is the fact before obtaining more laptop or computer memory, look into the machine directly into which it can be installed. When the machine is running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory threshold is 3.25GB. Using more than this would basically constitute any waste. Make sure that one’s motherboard can handle this upgrade amount, as well. Good blog post.

  5. I have really learned result-oriented things by your web site. One other thing I want to say is the fact that newer laptop or computer operating systems have a tendency to allow more memory to be utilized, but they also demand more memory space simply to operate. If a person’s computer can not handle extra memory as well as newest program requires that storage increase, it usually is the time to shop for a new PC. Thanks

  6. Thanks for helping me to attain new tips about pcs. I also contain the belief that certain of the best ways to maintain your laptop in best condition is by using a hard plastic case, or perhaps shell, that fits over the top of the computer. Most of these protective gear will be model precise since they are manufactured to fit perfectly on the natural casing. You can buy them directly from the vendor, or via third party sources if they are intended for your laptop computer, however don’t assume all laptop could have a covering on the market. All over again, thanks for your ideas.
