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. gary > > Kurt -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org For FBSD list: http://transfinite.thought.org/slicejourney.php The 4.98a release of Jottings: http://jottings.thought.org/index.php _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
