In which case - why the need for an alias?
I don't have an alias - I really don't know why you would think I need one confused

Here's an interesting one. A silent PC, the size of a paperback! Might be useful for any of you "system integrators" out there! smile

Wonder how much they go for? US$ 285 doesn't sound much, does it?

It's made in Haifa, in Northern Israel. Interesting.

Check-out this one. Who has a million songs in their collection? I don't think even Bruce Springsteen has cut that many tracks! smile

But " ... read-write head of a hard drive two thousands times smaller than the width of a human hair". Well, that is amazing! Makes you wonder where it's all going to end.

Well, judging by the growth in the size of operating systems and application software on the average PC in the past 15 years, we WILL need terabyte hard drives just to do the same in the future as what we do today! frown

Bring back DOS. Now you're talking, Jon. But surely the most exciting thing about nanotechnology is the prospect of tiny tunneling machines (etc.) toiling away through the blocked arteries of Obese Britain? Yeah, let's hear it for the fattest nation this side of the Atlantic! smile

Don't worry Huw, no-one's blaming you, Mate. Nor anyone else, by the look of it!

Don't forget that we live in a "no-blame culture" now, where individuals don't have to take responsibility for anything! But that's OK, because Nanny is there to look after us. smile

Who was it who said "stop the planet, I want to get off"?
