    Wd740gd Ps Sluggard

    Regardless of the cause, there is nothing practical to be done. In Narch I will replace The WD with an IDE Seagato 200 GB. It will be no trouble finding a home for the 10K doggy drive - someone already wants it.

    Yes. Several hours were already consumed on this issue. Three different procedures were utilized, each with n=5. In each case the %RSD5 values for both the WD 10K drive and the 15k.3 were ~1%. The variances were so small and equal that there was really no point in running ANOVA, etc.

    Good grief. How can one define slower except in terms of time? For example, if a single operation that thrashes the scratch disk hard takes 2 minutes with one drive compared to 2.5 minutes with another drive, then the latter is slower. The issue is apparent in virtaully any operation where the scratch disk significantly exceeds the available RAM.

    Perhpas I was not clear, as the post was on a worse than usaul finger day. But it was specific. Why does the WD 10K drive perform so poorly compared to a 15k.3 when used as the PS scratch disk, all else being equal? B

    Holy crap, I'v done it now!. Tonight I dorpped the haard drive on my barefoot. How can I tell it it is damaged? Thanks B.

    Dropped Hard Driver

    Why is everyone so literalla? I did not mean juggling like an acrobat, rahter, I interchange many drives. At 3AM, I was tooo tired and foolish to hold two drives at once. Anyway, is it likley to have sustained more than 350Gs of shock falling 30" (75cm) onto the FOot? Does the removable enclosure help? Thanks, Eric

    ^^^ Any other ideas? Is it about time to ditch the WD 10K clunker? B.

    Dropped Hard Driver

    Well, I can tell by the little blood on my right foot that the ris biologoicla damage. But you should know that is not my concern. Charles: I wish I knew which drive it was or if it has the FDB. I could narrow it down to three, perhpas two. I was juggling around four drives in the removable enclosures and do not know with certainty. Bettis

    Does PS have a defragmentation policy for teh scratch disk? I never heard of such a thing. I think each file is 2GB max, then another file is created. When PS closes they are deleted, so there is no fragmentation. Defiler, Thanks, I sent a PM. Eric
  11. uh, how? I was hoping against hope that it would be fast enough to replace a 15K.3 and get me by until the 15K.4. I was wrong. Performance is rather odd, perhaps as a result of the firmware. It is very fast in some areas and yet poor in others. Timed task RSD seems to be higher than with the 15K.3 as well. Maybe it jsut doesn't like my system. Anyway, for now I'll probably keep the 10K WD drive for use a temp/WIP folder.

    15K Futures

    Is the any hope for an ew 15K.4 drive within hte next few months? It has beeen over a year sinc e the 15.k.3. With ever faster processors and DDR, the bootleneck is now in teh hard drive for the first time in a few years. I really can;t stand it so slowly any more. If this kkeps up I may need to reconsider teh fricking RAID 0 again, not used sinc the days of 3x45 GB 75GXPs on a FT66. I don't whant that noise and hassle but the hard dirve imnprovements are very deppressing these days.

    15K Futures

    Is therea ny hope for as new SCS drive in teh current lifetimes? Whereis Seagat in all this? Do they have the major technical difficulty in increasing the capacity or what? B
  14. It is rather dissappointing IMO.
  15. Thanks. So basically this WD 10K drive is sort of useless in my system. I might get one just for testing. I'm sure someone would buy it a few weeks later. B
  16. Do those borads support the TCQ?

    The Problem With Drm

    EX1. There is no copyright just because your photo was more artistically original, so any number of people can take similar photos at the same or different times and make a profit. EX2 and 3 would generally be infringements if the photo was essetially a copy. However, it might be acceptable to photograph a work af art if thre were other elemnts that differntiate the photograph from the original work of art. For example a person standing in front of a wall mural may be condiered as a separet work of art. However, that can be a gray area. You really should buy a book like this instead of speculating. Also keep in mind that publishers are often conservative and may request releases for photographs that may not absolutely legally require a release. B

    Just For Fun

    It depends on what is meant by frequaent use. I have an ancient 160 GB D540X that is still used about one a month for offsite backups and an 80 GB Barracuda ATA IV that has not been used in about 4 months. The oldes tdrive I currently use daily is a 36 GB 15K.3 purchased in late 2002. It is hard to believe that the 15K.3 is so old now and that I have added a dozen IDE drives to my system since then.

    The Problem With Drm

    Photographic copyright laws are long established and primarily do not change whether or not the image is captured and/or reproduced by digital or other means. If your photo was legally taken then someone else cannot use it for any purpose without your consent. By definition any photo is copyrighted at the moment it is created. The copyright generally belongs to the photographer unless sold or transferred. However, if the subject is private property photographed without permission then the usage would be limited. For example, you could display the photo on your website or elsewhere if the purpose of the photo was non-commercial, i.e., would not be used for advertising. The photo could also be used for editiorial purposes unless the accompanying text could be deemed defamatory. An example of a definite no-no would be to display a photo of the building adjacent to an article about crack houses. An article about beatiful homes of the Northeast would be fine. Also, if the building were only a small part of a larger scene, such as the skyline of a major US city, then one would be OK in using it for multiple purposes. There are many legal books about photographs and their uses. The bottom line is that it is always a good idea to get a release if possible. B

    P-ata Dirve Converted

    I'm sure they will, but what is the PD? Another reason for a converter is that there does not appear to be a normal IDE version of the WD740 or WD360 series. Or maybe I am missing something?
  23. LOST6200

    P-ata Dirve Converted

    The benefit is not related to performance. I have ~3160 GB of P-ATA drives and want to add about another 800 GB in Q1'04. However, I do not wish to buy any more of the P-ATA drives which will eventually be obsolete. There are no free PCI slots for extra SATA controllers.

    1.25 Vs 1.33 Crt Monitor Aspect Ratios

    Most displays are physically closer to the 4:3 ratio. Get out a ruler and measure the actual image size.
