This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

Things that amaze me

These things amaze me. I don't believe they should work, despite empirical evidence to the contrary. I use three out of four of these on a daily basis, and have even used all four simulataneously on occasion. Oh well.

I just want to know a little more on the story of how you used a CPU, Hard Drive, Car Engine and Airplane simultaneously. Am fully prepared to be amazed. :)

And that would be why one must always proofread one's posts. LOL! (Hangs head in shame)

It's easy! You just have to use a laptop while in an airplane and... um... driving up and down the aisle?

Its for the man who REALLY needs to get to the washroom!

Hard drives..my question is why do they fail so frequently. Turtle Boys/Computer Nerds harddrive bit the dust last week and I've had many go to hard drive heaven in the past. Sigh.

Depends on which ones you get, quality plays an important part in all this. But remember, hard drives are essentially spinning spindles which sit multiple physical platters with read/write heads sandwiched in between and suspend on arms and flooded with gas.

They also contain on-board controllers which can fail, too. In the olden days, controllers were actually cards you plugged into your PC.

As well, heat will kill hard drives. If your computer overheats, you can kiss your hard drives goodbye. I've seen many drives go this way.
