Need some punctuation there? I've been away from my email for a few days,
and this gave me a headache. :)

Weird Stuff in Sunnyvale CA had some 3ware 8-channel cards for $200
earlier in the month. That's not too bad. And considering that *DENSITY*
for cost is still better in IDE (as in gigabytes per inch/per power
connector), if you're more interested in price than performance, or if
your requirements are for a low footprint array, IDE RAID can be viable. I
haven't seen 72gb SCSI 1" disks under $100 lately.  I have seen 80gb IDE
1" disks under $100. And I bet 8 80gb IDE disks use a lot less power and
space than an equivalent amount of space in 9gb half height SCSI disks
(which are about the only way to match that price footprint handily).

I've got a couple around here somewhere. Still settling from a weekend in
SoCal, but I'll see if I can find something.
