  2. Happy Birthday Grawk!

    Happy Birthday Dan!
  3. 30T SSD big enough?

    Bear in mind that when I mentioned Bad Robot Studios, I used that as an example of someplace with the unlimited budget to jump on these as they're being released. I think we're talking over $10k while it's on the bleeding edge. But, it will apply downward pressure on the rest of the market. I paid about $700 for a 2T Evo 850 not too long ago and OWC has Micron (Crucial) 2T ssd's on sale for under $400.
  4. Samsung has unveiled the video studio's dream storage unit. How many would Bad Robot need? https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/2/20/17031256/worlds-largest-ssd-drive-samsung-30-terabyte-pm1643
  5. Happy Birthday Aimless1!

    Happy Birthday and get well soon!
  6. Fuck in snow

    Mikey, I can see that these folks aren't impressed with our puny NW snow. Me, I was dancing around on my deck when it really got going! Don't worry, the old girl should handle it just fine. Just keep an ice scrapper in the trunk.
  7. What are you listening to Part the Third

    Gotta admit that I'm not familiar with these (in any format). I'm hoping for a thorough review Peter?
  8. RIP some fuck or another

    Very sad. Condolences to all.
  9. Fuck in snow

    Woke up to the first snow I've seen in a long time! It only stuck around for a couple of hours but it was exciting for someone who lived in San Jose Ca for the last 35 years.
  10. Happy Birthday Colin!

  12. Happy Birthday EdWood!

    Happy Birthday Ed! I hope your cardio issues have responded to treatment. Don't be such a stranger or just post here more often. Enjoy the day!!!

    Yup, that's right up there! I started looking at the surface it's sitting on. Basement floor would be my guess? And, aren't those real sutures? Maybe this freak is helping to pay his way during a surgical rotation?
  14. Deals

    That is awesome Brent! I did look at this last night and went away pining for the Janus Collection. I use a lot of storage for stuff like sample libraries so I keep an eye on the prices of SSD's. I've been stoked at the way the price of these devices has been dropping the last couple of years and it looks like Crucial/Micron is going to turn up the heat. 2T Micron 1100 for $387.99 at OWC! I bought a 2T Samsung Evo 850 about a year ago for around $700 and that was a great deal. The Crucial was around $600 at the time but I went for the extra 2 years of warranty (5 vs 3) on the Sammy. https://eshop.macsales.com/item/Micron/DAK20T0TBN/
  15. Happy Birthday Thrice!

    Yoo-hoo Calling Trice. Happy Birthday Stephen! I hope things are going great for you.
