At a previous job, there was a company director who insisted, no it isn't folklore, that his CD drive was a coffee cup holder. He ruined 3 CD drives in one month.

Who got fired ? The PC tech who told him to stop doing that.

I wasn't the PC tech at that job.

Hi Carl. Seems that you need to lessen the job criteria, there will be wider chances to grab one. Who knows luck is on your side.

Today I joined the stand up comedy competition for the hospital 20th anniversary.
No luck as the winner using slap stick joke instead. Confusing jury weren't doing their homework I think.

Wow... well, if I were that tech, I'd have explained (nicely) to him how the drive tray mechanism was designed to support a disk, not a coffee cup. But, if he preferred to use it as such, then just let him authorize the purchase of a case of CD/DVD drives so they could be rapidly replaced every time he breaks them. THAT would have been the PC thing to say.

Fools who insist on being fools should be allowed to do so if they have authority. It's foolish to even try to correct them. Eventually the folly of their ways will catch up with them.

Last night, I installed an SSD+HD hybrid drive and installed a fresh copy of Windows. I just finished loading up SP1 and SP2 onto it this morning. I then booted up and timed how long it took.

Previously, from a cold start to the desktop where I could actually start being productive (meaning start-up processes have finished), it took about 5 minutes. Now? Try 1.5 minutes.

The great thing about a hybrid is that you get near SSD performance and a lot more disk space for a lot less. I snagged a Seagate Momentus XT 500Gb for just $60 (after rebate) shipped. I wasn't ever planning to buy Seagate again, after experiencing two HD failures on some older Seagate drives, but the reviews have been very positive after the latest firmware revision. I'm hoping the thing turns out to be the gem it makes itself out to be thus far.

I have just brought this Vista Laptop from ebay.

Acer Aspire 3055WXMI Laptop 2GHZ 1MB 80gb Windows Vista | eBay

I will use it maninly as a backup machine for checking my emails/forum etc when my main PC is either not working properly or busy doing something. It is something I have been intending on getting for ages, but I haven't been able to afford it before.

I will be looking at B&Q, PC World and Currys websites for jobs shortly.
