    Danno, I saw that happen a time or two, once that I really remember was just before the deadline to turn an assignment in. I really felt badly for that guy. We learned to use multiple rubber bands to keep sections of the cards together, to speed up debugging and to make sure that the cards weren't ever scrambled.

    I also remember when I went to purchase my first PC with a hard drive. It had a 5-MB HDD, but it was upgradable to 10 MB. The salesman asked why I would want to do that because "there's no way you're ever going to fill up a 5 MB hard disk drive." LOL!!!

    That doesn't surprise me at all. I've been told that SSDs are going to be cheaper to build than a platter-based one and the consumer expection is that they'll pay more for the SSD's performance increase. So Apple gets more profit if they so choose.

    Woody, I just went out looking around after @Whiskeyman mentioned some things and pretty much everything I looked at was SSD. I have a few years left before I need to make the investment. I have a new laptop and tablet, but looking at the iMac models for 2019 surprised me, especially after reading the article about how you could save money upgrading memory and such yourself. The big RAM number really surprised me.

    Ive been a Mac user for over 4 years now, my old one got wet and I had to downsize from 15" to 13" and its a learning experience. The old one still works I just have to use a remote keyboard. I was super hesitant to get a Mac, now we are a Mac household. Just got Adobe Lightroom so lets see where this journey takes us
    Nikon D-610 , Nikon 200-500 mostly
