On the other side of the silliness, Jerry Pournelle was insisting (probably from the 1980s) that hard disks would soon be overtaken by SSDs - Solid state beats moving parts everytime. I have no idea if he gave up before it happened.

I did buy one of these - which I could ill afford. The performance is scary. Starting up Reaper with all the VSTs and stuff used to take over a minute. Now maybe a second or two. SATA III is barely up to the bandwidth.

SSDs by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #6 Mon Sep 02, 2013 at 06:05:06 PM EST
We're replacing our top end HDD arrays with SSDs at $EvilBank.

MBW's new ish Mac has no HDD, only SSD storage.  Give it 5 years and every low end PC will be SSD only.  Those buggers are quick.

and it blows my fucking mind to think about it, that ancient fucking Romans were forward-thinking enough to import fucking water buffalo to Italy. Why not bring fucking tigers too, while you're at it, you adventurous bastards.
