  1. I keep retired drives until they die. I even have an old IBM 3.2GB drive in an external usb case(never use it though, since thumbs drives are far more convenient). I have friends and family with computers built using my old hardware with various old drives in them, including some IBM 75GXP's. Yes, those IBM 75GXP drives are still in use to this day!

    When did Eugene and company sell out?

    Well, this is good news. I used to frequent Storage Review, and this forum, until the site became a ghost town, as some have said. I sure hope it does come back, as good or better than it once was. I miss some of the arguments;)

    Should I RAID?

    You ask about RAID 0 here? I say that's flamebait. I vote for BAN Don't listen to these no-raid-0-goonies. Try it, you will like it. And post your question at a forum where users have experience with raid 0.

    Important Clinton Facts To Remember

    How gullible people are. Here a list of alledged "facts" but no sources credited. It bogus guys.
  7. Don't you be saying this crap to your republican friends, they would accuse you of being a liberal and kick you out. One little correction. GM last year got more money from the Government in Grants and tax subsidies than was paid out for welfare recipents over the last twenty years. Also, unemployment is paid for by businesses, not tax money. The government just administers it. http://www.corporations.org/welfare/ http://www.progress.org/banneker/cw.html http://www.citizen.org/congress/welfare/index.cfm

    Picard it's a new member, chill. Sorry about Picard he is very eager to jump on people neglecting common courtesy, his posts are puerile and usually absurd, allow me to apologize. Welcome to SR, many of us are very helpful, expert, and friendly techs. 210318[/snapback] And who are you quoting here. You have not been here long enough to know me so well.

    R.I.P America

    Well stynx, I think everybody knows about the Patriot act and how it stomps all over the right to privacy. There have been many stories in the news about people being arrested for speaking their mind. Don't get caught wearing a t-shirt with a message on it being critical of Bush in a public place, you will go to jail. Didn't there used to be an ammendmant guarenteeing free speech. It seem so long ago, I can'd recall. Many have also heard about people being arrested without charge. Just the other day, a 16-Year-old girl here in Michigan was arrested while waiting in a public place for her mother to pick her up simply because she had no ID on her. Cops now can make there own rules, it seems, since there is no law requiring citizen's to carry ID(Don't confuse this with licenses for oprating equipment). The Supreme court ruled just recently that local governments(as in city, but of course applies to levels of government) can take any land they want, and not just for public use, but even to then sell to private parties. This is all general knowledge. If you would just read the news occasionally, you might become enlightened the world in which you live.

    styx looks like a homophobe. You know what homophobe's are really afraid of, don't ya? This notion that liberals would stand against the burning the rainbow flag is very silly. Liberal means free, numbnuts? Liberals support free expressions. It's those darn elitist conservative republicans that are working to take freedom, aka liberty, away. Here styx, read the definition of Liberal: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=liberal&db=* I still don't see how one blow job is worse than 10's of thousands of inoccent lives destroyed in an alledged war on oil, er..I mean terror.

    Looks like troll bait. I vote for ban
  14. Of course I'm not serious. Except that I do think bush and is the most evil person ever to run this country. But apacolypse? No, just food for thought. Hence the link to the definition of gullible for styx

    THE LAW IS THE LAW

    Just one little correction. Our govenment needs to represent all the people, not just the majority. When one group rules over another, that is not democracy, that is communism, in the former Soviet Union sense. I hate to think that is where we are headed, though there is a lot of ugly out there. Given that the topic is not serious, have a grain of salt.

    That's gotta be supercaff wearing the bowling shirt.
  18. LOL, typical republican response. He does not have the intelligence to think of a rebuttal, so he offers an ad hominem argument. That is, a personal attck on the person while offering nothing to rebut the content. Oh, you probably don't even know what rebuttal means. http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=gullible&db=*
  19. What do we have, Plagues(ie, aids, sars, ebola, west nile, etc) Hurricanes, Earhtquakes, tsunami's, famine, war, etc. Yeah, sounds a lot like the apacolypse, as discribed in the Book of Revelations. If Bush does get another term, or any republican gets the next seat, it's nailed. The mark of the beast looks a like like an elephant, the symbol for the republican party.

    You've come to the entirely wrong place to ask about RAID. You are lucky a flame war has not started (YET) The site is frequented by non-raid o goonies. They being quiet now for some reason.

    Bush Threatens America

    happens all the time... I think he just made a grammatical error. I don't see any problems with the Grammar. Definately does not look like a grammatical error. It does, however, look like a freudian slip.

    Bush's State Of The Union Speech Redeemed

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,126124,00.html Bush's Uranium Claim Gets Some Support ...A British report concluded that Bush's statement and a similar one by Prime Minister Tony Blair (search) were "well-founded." In his speech, Bush had attributed the uranium claim to the British government. A Senate Intelligence Committee report found inadequate evidence that deposed Iraqi President Saddam had been rebuilding his nuclear weapons program. It cited various reports, however, that Iraq had sought uranium in Africa. Thus, although Bush cited only British evidence that was determined to have been inconclusive, other intelligence files clearly contained other inconclusive evidence of the truth of the claim... ...Bush, in his State of the Union address on Jan. 28, 2003, used the uranium intelligence to help make the case that Saddam was pursuing nuclear weapons. "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa," he said. That claim came under scrutiny after the International Atomic Energy Agency determined that documents purportedly showing Iraq buying uranium from Niger were fake. After Wilson's op-ed appeared, the White House said including the 16 words in the State of the Union was a mistake because the assertion was not well enough corroborated to merit mention in a State of the Union speech. The British have maintain consistently that their intelligence was not based on the forged documents. But the Senate committee disclosed other intelligence suggesting that Iraq was pursuing uranium. The committee cited separate reports received from foreign intelligence services on Oct. 15, 2001, and Feb. 5, 2002, and March 25, 2002. The State Department doubted the accuracy of the reports, but the CIA and Defense Intelligence Agency had more confidence in them. Though Wilson reported to U.S. officials there was "nothing to the story" that Niger sold uranium to Iraq, the CIA and DIA were intrigued by one element of his trip. Wilson had said a former prime minister of Niger, Ibrahim Mayaki, mentioned a visit from an Iraqi delegation in 1999 that expressed interest in expanding commercial ties with Niger, the world's third largest producer of mined uranium. Mayaki believed this meant they were interested in buying uranium. The British inquiry said it was generally accepted that Iraqi officials visited Niger in 1999, and there was intelligence from several sources that the visit was to acquire uranium. "Since uranium constitutes almost three-quarters of Niger's exports, the intelligence was credible," the report said. The Senate committee also described various reports about Iraqi attempts to buy uranium from French, British and unidentified foreign governments... backs up everything I said. thx.

    Bush's State Of The Union Speech Redeemed

    If new info backs up bush's statements from years ago, yeah, makes bush feel good, but it does not change that fact that he knew then that the info was not reliable, and still cited it as credible. How do you know the new info, which again comes from Bush's administraion, is credible? You don't. Everybody seemss to forget, the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, etc, are all part of the executive branch, which Bush heads.
