Comment I don't know about "Archival" grade or not, but... (Score 1) 385

for personal use, I still access many of my generic "CompUSA" branded CDRs from 1997 that read just fine and I have many others from different manufacturers that are still working fine.

At work, I create several CDs per week and I've never encountered problems with them after 4+years of use.

Concur on the case.

I lived with the OEM fans for 2 days then sunk $219 into the Noctuas (~$22 per fan at the time and I got a total of 10) and now the thing is whisper quiet, even with 8 fans going.

Also, The hot-swap drive bay door had a hinge pin break off and, when I initially contacted them about a replacement, they wanted to sell me the whole front panel for $175!!!

Have never been "happy" with the case but it does do its job so I haven't replaced it yet.

I purposely avoided naming any "one" religion, and also purposely underestimated the number of extremists. Everyone knows there are way more than 40-45k people out there actively planning your (and my) death over "words in a book". The point is, (besides being above your head), that even when using an absurdly, laughably low number, it still equates to over 40,000 people who truly, firmly believe that it's okay to "kill for god"...

Don't get your panties in a bunch.

Because for every million or so religious people who don't force their beliefs on you there are probably 10 people who are "extremists". If you count up the number of followers of "big three religions" prone to violence, you're looking at probably 40,000-45,000 people actively planning to kill you over the words "god" used when he said "Love your neighbor as yourself"...well, he said that if you're of the "christian" persuasion. Don't kill me, bro!
