*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.

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
