Disk drives suck less than they did a couple of years ago. Which is nice


since 1996 or so, the only drive I've had going wrong (apart from a seperate IDE controller which went in 96 ish) was a maxtor 40GB, and that was pretty much my own fault because I ran it in a 'quiet' enclosure without the metal heat sink brackets, it overheated and started developing errors. mostly running 500GB sata western digital blues now (apart from my hitachi 2TB external). the annoying thing with two IDE western dig's I have is they can't be used on docking stations because of the jumper configuration.

You were told to clean up our systems, not delete 8,000 crucial files


I mean more about compatibility, an email with an image sent will generally show up with the image visible, a hard drive from this system will generally work with that system (provided they are both sata and so on)


I swear computers now are where they _should_ have been 20 years ago.
