Mark Brown writes "Tom's Hardware is live-testing DDR2 memory products in order to determine whether memory manufacturers submit cherry-picked products for reviews. 'GeIL DDR2-667 that was claimed to be purchased performed worse than the review samples they got: 471 MHz for the review samples vs. 421 MHz for the retail memory.'"

    Oh, my, what ever will we do? Maybe the memory manufacturers should divorce and marry other companies.
     
    In other words, set their affairs in proper order...

    I never trust specs on any product I buy. For example, if I buy a hard drive the first thing I do is open it up, shake all the bits out it and count them. If they don't add up to exactly what is listed in the spec, I return it.

    ARTHUR: There! Look!
    BEDEVERE: What does it say?
    GALAHAD: What language is this?
    BEDEVERE: Brother Maynard, you are a scholar.
    BROTHER MAYNARD: It is Aramaic!
    GALAHAD: Of course. dg41 of Aramathea!
    ALL: Of course.
    ARTHUR: What does it say?
    BROTHER MAYNARD: It reads ... "No way by dg41 (743918) on Wednesday April 12, @02:35PM (#15116780)"
    *EXCITEMENT*
    "No way, there can't be anyone making dishonest or cheap mem... PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
    ARTHUR: What?
    BROTHER MAYNARD: "The PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA..."
    BEDEVERE: What's that?
    BROTHER MAYNARD: His computer must have crashed while typing it.
    BEDEVERE: Oh, come on.
    BROTHER MAYNARD: That's what it says.
    ARTHUR: But if his computer was crashing, he wouldn't bother to type "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA". It would just crash.
    BROTHER MAYNARD: It's down there typed on slashdot.
    GALAHAD: Perhaps he was dictating.
    ARTHUR: Shut up. Is that all it says?
    BROTHER MAYNARD: That's all. "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA".
    ARTHUR: "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA".
