  • The problem with technology is all the moving parts. What fails on a computer? The hard drive. The fans. The CD/DVD ROM drive. Bearings wear out. Heads crash. Things get bent. Dust gets in places dust should not be.

    Someday, hopefully soon, things like FlashROM will get fast enough and cheap enough that hard drives and dvds will go away and cheap read-write storage will finally be solid state.

    Someday, hopefully soon, CPU manufacturers will take a short haitus from the endless pursuit of making processors faster and faster so we can all play Extreme Unreal Doom Tournament Skate Park 2009 at 1600x1200 50fps and instead spend a few moments making them draw less power, generate less heat, be less polluting and, here's the kicker, not require any more damned fans.

    Until then, suffering.
