  1. Actually, small hard-drives produce very little heat. I un Chris Diefer’s I8kFan utility on my XPS Gen2. Among its many other features, I8kFan allows me to read all of the thermistors in a Dell laptop. Guess what’s always the coolest sub-system in mine. Yep, the HD.

  3. Hi guys,

    Great show as usual. On the subject of using Flash memory as a hard drive, I thought the was a limit to the number of write opperations you could do to flash memory? I can understand this not being a problem on memory cards, (I think the limit is pretty high) but on a memory disk used for an modern OS I would be worried that this could become a problem. Imagine how many time something like the swap file would be writen to!

    I have been using a very old Compaq Aero laptop for ages that I fitted with a 256mb CF card and CF to IDE converter insted of its Hard drive, it runs the Old DOS based Psion emulator, so I have Word Processing, Spreadsheets, DataBases and Calendar on a device that has a real size keyboard and screen, but with a battery life of over 8 hours. I like to think it’s the kind of device Psion would have ended up making if they had stayed in the market.

    Cheers

    David
