Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother:
A girl is allowed to be crazy as long as she is equally hot. Thus, if she’s this crazy, she has to be this hot. You want the girl to be above this line. Also known as the ‘Vickie Mendoza Diagonal’. This girl I dated. She played jump rope with that line. She’d shave her head, then lose 10 pounds. She’d stab me with a fork, then get a boob job. [pause] I should give her a call.
Thing is, SSDs are so scorching hot that I’m willing to put up with their craziness. Consider that just in the last two years, their performance has doubled. Doubled! And the latest, fastest SSDs can even saturate existing SATA interfaces; they need brand new 6 Gbps interfaces to fully strut their stuff. No CPU or memory upgrade can come close to touching that kind of real world performance increase.
Well. Seeing as I now have on and off site backup. It’s probably time to get an SSD.
