Scenes from work, do I need a bit upgrade edition...

(a little background - we use a piece of firewall software on Windows machines at the college I work at for students to connect in the dorms. The software only runs on 32-bit Windows, and a girl brought her computer in because it wasn't working. It turned out she had 64-bit Windows installed on it).

computer tech: The reason it wouldn't work is because you had 64-bit Windows. The software is designed to work on 32-bit Windows, which is what most computers are, so we had to remove it and make an exception in our firewall so you could connect.

freshman chick: So my computer doesn't have enough bits?

computer tech: No, actually yours has twice as many bits as most computers...
