Nice. I've had good direct-to-manufacturer RMA experiences with Seagate, WD and Corsair myself.
i guess the keyphrase here is DIRECT-TO-MANUFACTURER.

now where can we buy these bargain intel enterprise SSDs? :D :D :D

Mine too, along with a CDROM-drive, but it wasn't an SB card though. It was a no-name brand soundcard but still used a Yamaha chip.

Intel's Optane drives on Ice Lake Xeons are so fast they're causing XFS on Linux to kernel panic.

Here is a directory of suppliers of covid medicines,  medical supplies and equipment,  rt-pcr services, list of hospitals, quarantine facilities, etc.   Just navigate through the different tabs of the excel sheet.    Credit goes to the creators of this directory whose names may be found on the first tab under Gen Info.

What an incredibly cool project!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-1_JwlHO-8

A Pilot Spent 17 Years And 40,000 Hours Building A 1:3 Scale B-17 Flying Fortress

Every part is bespoke, and everything works. It even flies! Although of course the cockpit is no longer accurate as the pilot barely fits himself into the space originally meant for an entire crew.

That thing resurfaced a latent memory for me. Watching Spielberg's amazing stories at channel 9. So a gunner situated in that clear bubble was trapped. I think a landing gear got stuck, the only way for the plane to land is to sacrifice the dude. Anyhoo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItnJbsljcE4

Someone bought off all of Caselabs IP and looking to build them from Sweden.

I hope they succeed as I always wanted own a Mercury S8 but [/size]I can only imagine how much of an uphill battle this is going to be as Caselabs has always been a niche brand.

Super Metroid FAQ by nemes1s. The guide has justified paragraphs, but is typed in a monospace font and does without any extra spaces. It's made justified by the author's word choice, sentence structure, and punctuation alone.

Nice that there are still people who make these and even more awesome that people read them. Usually most go to YT for these guides.

How cool is this? Atari ST that's been in daily use since 1985! They really don't build 'em like they used to
