  • Well THAT all sorted itself out now DIDN'T it!!! ...

  • LOL you're dang skippy it is, you old-timer!!       ...
  • Am I still the oldest participating* user?   Murbot, wake up! Murbot!!   Heck, it's been awhile since we talked about this but.... oh nevermind, all of you old farts are probably all dead now.   ... * it's been a wee while, I realize.
  • Oh buddy, if I had a tower I'd totally look into jamming an eSATA card into it and using those enclosures... as it is, I'll be dropping back into IDE just to have a dependable drive that's faster than the one built into the iMac (plus the LightScrib…
  • Hey guys, This is an update, for anyone else who wanders down this particular path... So today my SATA to IDE host adapter arrived and so I slipped hooked it up to the drive, bunged the drive down into the enclosure and fired that contraption up…
  • Oh my golly, I missed Fellowship's message Wow, how long has it been? And with a new little boy?!! (or was that one of y'all's doggie threads?)
  • We actually covered the Watermelon thing over at AN one time back in '05, here's the link to that story.... but of course it was something from back over here at AI... though it must have been from pre-blackout (unless there have been subsequent thr…
  • 'Burb, we were trying figure out how to tell you this... but the whole "AppleNova is Down" thing was just a ruse. Have fun over here at AI, they're really swell people and they'll take care of you and everything!! Um, you don't mind if we keep a…

  • Hassan was living in London and had a penchant for having his really nice bicycle stolen every so often. The details are his own, but needless to say you don't want anything you love to be kept near his bicycle.... And as far as the server fix g…
  • I'm unfamiliar with how the write speed of optical devices coincide with bus speeds... this setup would have data pushed out at Firewire 400 speed, through IDE, translated into SATA, to a 20x DVD burner.... if it works at all I'll be fairly astonish…
  • Oooo, thanks for the comparison talksense101, I was wondering if someone could give me an idea if I'd take a hit on the performance of the SATA drive. I wonder how long it'll be before the jam is broken on getting 5.25 SATA-ready enclosures on the s…
  • ::bump:: I think there's a way to use the enclosure.... Last week I opened up my order from NewEgg and realized that I'd made a blunder... the 20x DVD burner I'd purchased was SATA, but the enclosure I'd purchased was IDE. What a dummy I felt.…
  • Last year I was at the local renaissance festival and was stunned to see a little gang of sheep tripping across the hill nipping at the tourist-trampled grass, looking mildly cross at a whistling noise floating through the air. I was all like "What …
  • #1 does a good job of hitting key words with bolded type, and the image of the steamroller is good, but some people aren't going to read deep enough to find out that it's about web design (even though it's mentioned in the banner area). #2 was ac…
  • Ha!! Yes, we have beer, motorcycles and hard drive reformatting lessons from time to time. And then there's my Poo Log. (spotty results today gang) Hey.... What's with all the pop-behinds.... are these coming from AI? Is that something new? ::…
  • You don't even know!! All these whippersnappers running around here are really driving that point home! We're like an ark-ship that went zooshing off into the great beyond to settle new worlds... on our "planet" we have a custom of making BEE…
  • Well, I sure do hope that the current crop of active AI users aren't too ticked by us old-timers dropping in like this... so unexpected, and during the holidays at that! Thanks you guys. We should make you a cake or something when we get our house b…
