suthrnrunt: the_rhino: I would like to plug and play my hard drive into all of their ports

well you might have a problem there with your old IDE ribbon dangling harddrive... they are only compatible with SATA and USB 3.0... and if they are going to be using adapters, they'll be using them on each other.


Some fairly new motherboards still have a single IDE connector.
You're right, though, I suspect they are only there to let people import data from legacy hard drives.

Is it wrong that I was hoping for a re-issue of an actual 197x pinup calendar from say, Siemens?

Nah, USB to PATA adapters do that. I used my PATA connector to add more optical drives for ripping my DVD and CD collection. 5 is enough right?

pecosdave: I know I'm sort of a loser for pointing this out but I had that exact same magnifier/light and the battery pack for my original Gameboy also.  Yes, I occasionally played on the shiatter.


I had the same one as well. Honestly, that wasn't the first thing I noticed about the picture.

Real men would compile in Fortran 77 on a VAX system pinning variables into memories and spawning call back loops.

Funny you should mention that ... my dad did a bunch of Fortran statistics stuff back in his day. Not joking around now. Yes, you guys are real men. I really really miss my dad.

You haven't heard of pussy whipped German dudes or the word Stehpinkler? While I do know the Hamburgers who taught me German do talk differently than the rest of the country, I am fairly sure neither the former nor the later are limited to HH.
