    Reddit thinks of SSDs as cheap RAM

    SSD as cheap RAM... RAM from the late 70's early 80's... with a short lifespan. SSDs are GREAT for ROMs but extremely active data will murder them. "It’s not necessary to build a scalable architecture from the start." This is a BAD idea from personal experience, unless you're a kid with rich...

    Did you know a 3rd world trade center tower fell on 9/11?

    Taking a couple years off... College

    Maybe people are finally starting to realize almost all educational institutions are for-profit in one way or another, and the people running them care more about making money than education. There's a lot of things you can learn without needing college/university, especially thanks to the...

    Various Computer/Server components and devices (Some are FREE) -- Shipping from Canada

    What is size of your Monitor?

    1 - 24" 1920x1200 60Hz 3ms TN+ LCD 1 - 19" 1280x1024 60Hz 6ms IPS LCD 1 - 19" 1600x1200 75Hz flat CRT It's funny how the CRT has superior colour and contrast, was cheaper, and is much older... although it's a bit out of focus, need to tune it.
