I thought IBM was getting out of the HD market?

Yes, they are, going into a joint venture with Hitachi.

Above all, get one with a good warranty!

This is a good point. the WD have 3 years.

Thanks for the input,
As for IBM - as one of the most inovative companies in the field, I think its sad that IBM is loosing its credibility in the HD market...

check this out, to see what IBM done about that: http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/2002-12-02-hard-drive-deal_x.htm

About WD - check this out : http://www.storagereview.com/welcome.pl/http://www.storagereview.com/articles/200205/20020529WD800JB_1.html

WarPig,
First - love your sig.

Second - I had bad luck with maxtor as well (five years ago...), and I currently have 40GB IBM which is very fast, very quite, but have 2K bad sectors....

you didn't mention Western Digital, why is that ?

1. What HD to buy? Dec 16, 2002, 09:42 shul
 
Hi all,
I need some help here. I want to buy a new hard disk, I need something around 80GB, reliable, quite and fast (at that order).

Suggestions? bad experience?

The current HDs to choose from are: western digital 8MB cache 80GB, Seagate 80GB, Maxtor 80GB ATA 133 and IBM 80GB.

I got about an hour to choose ( I have a pretty good idea what I am going to choose, but I don't want to bias anyone :-)

shul

... on the same note, you can always give the option to use old link format on the "Customize" panel.

9. Re: The suicide bombe game Dec 7, 2002, 13:04 shul
 
By saying "it's a bit of a simplification" I was referring to your analogy between suicide bombers and the Hiroshima bombing, I don't think comparing between WWII and the current terror acts is relevant on any level.

I am very happy you found a game that suits your taste, but that doesn't mean you can ignore what it stands for.

Hyatus, I am really sorry you feel that way - but pretending such views does not exist is not something I can do, as you might have noticed, I am not the one who started this debate.

The suicide game is similar to a game about dropping an Hydrogen bomb on Japan. Killing civilians, that's bad right?

That's a bit of a simplification , don't you think?

4. Re: The suicide bombe game Dec 6, 2002, 13:22 shul
 
Seeing that people are keeling each other all the time, with conventional weapons, no matter what nationality they have, but only a small group is using the suicide bombing method, I'd say that almost all of the other games don't kill "arabs" but some sort of an "enemy" (in Max Payne , for example, you kill americans, in SWAT 3, you kill almost every nationality on the face of the earth... )

So I fail to see the argument. If there was a game where you kill innocent Arabs I think it should be condemned as this game is.

9. Re: observation on popular threads Dec 5, 2002, 13:12 shul
 
but as of this writing the top commented threads are ~83% OOTB-related...

Had the same thought earlier today ( I am not from your side of the world, so "earlier today" is equivalent to your 2am or something...)

It is probably both things... one of the OOTB had a completely non-related thread about what games can one play this days...

He even posted some notes about the above link in his site...

December 05 2002 update
Great Googly Moogly! I thought this nonsense was finally starting to peter out, but it seems that Blue's News has posted this page and the traffic is going through the roof again. I guess I'll post their link above in the Left Justified Single Cell 425 Pixel Width Table of Fame.


... looks like you bluesnewsed his site, blue :-) ...

Hey,
Thanks for the answers :-)

Anyway, The T-Shirts aren't *that* long on the market, are they? since 97?? five years ?!?!
And Blue doesn't wear a T shirt in the picture... so this whole "T-Shirt" hinting business is not to the point...

Blue,
What kind did you try? Because "disastrous results" doesn't even come close to describing what I get when I shave against the grain... (and shaving with the grain doesn't really cut it... does it ?)

The problem you pose is so easy to solve its absurd :-)

Simply run the simulating computer on the moon.

anyway, I got thinking about HHGTTG ... maybe we'll get to know what is the question.... (yes, I know *this* computer is only a weather machine...)

Thats odd cuz i was getting 25+ on my voodoo2/333 mhz/65mb ram.

Are we talking about the same test? the one with the weird fog thing? It didn't move on my machine (but I ran it on 586/90mhz back then)

but a very early version of Doom was leaked also.

.. I didn't have a modem back then, so I didn't know about that... so this makes at least 3 times that had happened, hmm...

(now we need to check if commander keen leaked...)

It seems that no one recalls, but a very early version of the quake 3 tests leaked also....

It was the same thing, Carmack said it was only "hardware tests" or something, it ran in 3 FPS on a voodoo3.

This is starting to look like an M.O. more than a "random act of an employee"...

14. causes for a headache Oct 21, 2002, 12:49 shul
 
Guys, I hate to break it to you, but there are other causes for a headache, overworking is only one...

blue, please check that:
1. your monitor is less than 3 years old (if its CRT)
2. you don't have some sort of caffeine addiction - this is actually a main cause for headaches, if you are trying to stop the habit
3. you drink (non alcoholic) enough
4. you haven't eaten anything you might be allergic too
5. you have no allergies
6. your eye site is fine

.. See? there are many other explanations...

but I do think blue need some rest (and don't go to MrsBlue's parents! take a vacation somewhere)... Hell, what wouldn't one do to take over a web site...
