*nod* It's _all_ perspective and application. While you can
substitute a fast storage device for almost anything there are a lot of
times you need space more than speed.

So we'll be getting the results sometime over the next 72 hours? ;-)
I met a lone man in the desert, a traveling priest, Nicholas D.
Wolfwood. He smiled and then he told me that I'm a troubled man. Faced
with his all seeing smile there was nothing I could say in my defense.
Did I meet this man because I was destined to or, was it simply by a
small jest of God? The man's name is Nicholas D. Wolfwood, a traveling
priest I met in the desert. - Vash
