        battery-backed ram sound great for the time being!

        if not now [this minute], then relatively soon, i'm guessing
        within a few years somebody will have a solid-state device that emulates
        the current mechanical technology.  it will wind up being considerably 
        faster than the current drives and suck Much less juice.  

        oh yeah, and in a few years *every* computer will have a battery back up
        --not just our laptops.  after some N minutes everything will be saved.
        much less lost data due to sudden power outtages.
