Deskstar Wars(part I):
Luke: I need a new PC, Ben. But I'm having trouble deciding whether
to spend the extra for SCSI or just get IDE.
Obi-wan: Luke, clear your mind! Don't be tempted by the dark side.
Luke: But it's a lot cheaper!
Obi-wan: That's just what the Empire wants you to think! Look to the future.
How will you connect a scanner or CD-R? Surely you can't tell me
you're willing to use an ATAPI tape drive?
Luke: Why not? Lots of people use them. How bad can they be?
Obi-wan: This is worse than I thought! The Emperor is very powerful.
You must go to Degobah at once. Yoda will rekindle the fire
of multi-tasking within you. R2 - Keep him from buying
anything until he's seen the light.
(To be continued...)
Beware the March of IDEs!
Individually we're scuzzy, together we're scum!
Don't forget - The early write eats up the WORM!
No sir, the terminator will not make your SCSI bus stop running.
Yes, I'm afraid that even single-ended SCSI busses need terminators at
User#1: I just bought myself a new CDROM drive.
User#2: Is is SCSI?
User#1: Of course not, it's a really nice one!
Cheers, DISCLAIMER: I didn't do it.
