    Gurus,

    Any of you out there have a laptop with a solid-state drive as your main
    hard drive? If so, how do you like the performance?

    That wasn't my question.

  4. Maybe you could find the answer in your magazine?

    (Do you own the domain name spin.com? If not, you are abusing it,
    causing spam to be sent to the real owner's mail server.)

    I do not own the magazine. I choose the name randomly.

    BTS is trying to teach you some net 'orientation' or savvy or
    netiquette.

    Some politeness in usenet is to communicate as well as possible and to
    not be rude or harmful to others.

    When you choose a domainname (the part on the right side of the @ in
    your From) for mungeing your email address, you should choose a
    domainname which is invalid (now or in the future) rather than one that
    belongs to someone else now or in the future. spin.com belongs to
    someone else -- you don't want the usernames there to get the spam you
    are trying to avoid by not using your own address.


    Also, when you reply to a post such as BTS's, you should either properly
    attribute the persona you are replying to and then trim away everything
    you aren't replying and then properly context your reply remark under an
    empty line under the words you are replying. You should do that to help
    us understand what you are thinking about when you are typing your
    words. When you type your words up there on top without putting them
    right under anything, then there is no context for magazine or name to
    help me know what you are talking about.

    Oops. I left out the 'or'

    .... you should either structure the attribution, with trimming and
    context,

    -or-

    alternatively, you can paraphrase or summarize who said what in your own
    words to provide a context or meaning for what it is that you are
    replying to. Almost everyone finds that properly structuring the -
    attribution - trim - context - works much faster and better; more
    efficiency

  8. That's what I thought. You need to change it so the Usenet spam
    harvesting bots don't grab it and send spam to the spin.com server.

    Use: for your munge instead. Yes, exactly like
    that.

  9. It's anywhere from usable to slightly better than a regular drive. The real
    gain is the reduction in power requirements... thus longer battery life.

    Any of you out there have a laptop with a solid-state drive as your
    But don't solid-state drives have fewer lifetime read/write cycles
    (approx 100,000) than a regular hard drive? In a practical sense I don't
    know if the average user will ever hit such limits.
