~$250K is the "new" true starting 6-figure income
$100K isn't sh*t nowadays (eg. IC physical design jobs have been hovering around $100K since 2000. Don't tell me inflation has not taken its toll in the last decade and a half)
Otherwise I'm peachy with my customized Win7x64 installs.
I take it you've never tried Pecan Lodge in Dallas, or Franklin's in Austin?
I do this for all "new to me" (ie. new or used) drives. It better pass two rounds of back-to-back sector scan + zero fill without so much as farting in SMART, or I don't use it.
