SCSI

i hate scsi.

true it’s faster than ide. but it is so much easier. i have a raid 5 that lost a disk. i have to replace it, and because it is a raid, striped across three drives, i get to rebuild the whole damn thing.

don’t get me wrong, for a server that requires 15k rpm, scsi is the way. but for a workstation with a user sitting at the controls, there are far greater limitations on access response. please, give me some ide drives, and larger ram sticks with better fsb.

damn scsi.

i guess on the other hand i could look at it as job security
