I can't wait until this level of speed actually becomes affordable. A 1.28TB SSD is music to my ears.

Yea, that will be nice...

I don't know why you call this an SSD, since it is not a drive in the normal sense(Can't boot from it).

It will be affordable in just a few years... the problem is, it will be competing with slower drives that hold a petabyte. Heheh
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
you are terrible at math. at the most optimistic view, doubling storage capacities each year, and stretching your "few years" to 4 years, you *might* be looking at 32TB. My opinion, maybe 6-8TB would be realistic by 2012.
a petabyte is 1024TB. At the most optimistic view, it wont be until 2022 - and for some reason, I think hard drives as we know them won't be capable of storage densities that high. Probably some sort of holographic storage media. *shrug*
It's ok 3vi1. I get your humor. Also this is the company are little dancing queen Woz is working for now right?
And, unlike Bob, you're terrible at getting half-joking references to petabyte drives that were promised three years ago.
The point of the joke was that even if the price comes down, it won't compete with other slower technologies. That will almost certainly prove valid.
PS: As someone that's been programming computers for 27 years, and had a CS degree for 19 years... I'm pretty sure I don't suck at math and am aware of how large a petabyte is. Thanks.
So 3vi1, what you are trying to say here is that if I were to paypal you money...you would be willing to do all of my C# programs for me for the rest of the semester? (1 a week for about 8 more weeks)
hehe... I just finished writing about 30,000 lines of C# for a modular SNMP polling/reporting system I created. I'll be happy to look over anything if you want my input. :p
why couldnt you boot from it? essentially the bios would just pick it up as an add-in controller, which is just hardwired to SS chips that the controller will translate into looking like a harddrive -- essentially making it fully transparent to the system.
It's not custom unless your the only one who can boot it.

I want you to input my program...start to finish
