    yea i store 90% of my files on my 20gig secondary lol. I figure the OS on the terra with stored stuff on the 20gig is faster then everything ont he terra. The 15 gigs is between the o/s and the networked computer's files.

    So you *are* talking about storage! The above quote applies then.

    Well, you'll definately be prepared for the future when full-length DVD's in quality 100% accurate to a televsion will load on your computer instantly. (through a hard drive)

    i got bored a while back and posted this at another forum
    Subject: Scientific Pr0n Calculations
    Ok, im bored, i wanted to know how long in time 1PB of porn would be. So heres my calculations----70.9mb(porn)/14.0166667mins(lenght of porn)=1073741824mb(mb in a pb)/X mins(lenght of 1pb of porn). And Einstein would be proud of me for doing this because as soon as WD comes out with a 1 pedabyte hard drive we'll all be able to watch 403.87 years of our favorite porn movies.

    Well, you're right - mostly.

    The current MAME set is around 4gb.
    The next release will add about 3gb of games to it. (keep in mind - few new games per release)
    The games that are starting to be added are getting bigger fast.

    I'm going to quit talking though, because this thread has swerved towards piracy in fast forward mode.
