How Do You Backup 20TB of Data?

Steveftoth Re:Hmmm... (983 comments)

It also didn't work unless you had high quality floppies. Many ones I tried it with were write once, read never cause the data degraded on the other side since the disks we not rated for double sided.

PlayStation Home Beta Opens to the Public

Steveftoth Re:Oh God... (206 comments)

FYI, Xbox360 runs windows, a stripped down version but it's still windows.

Windows NT originally ran on both PowerPC and Alpha CPUs as well.

Anyway, keep the flame alive.

IT Vs. the Permanent Energy Crisis

Steveftoth Re:Exactly. (285 comments)

not if they use a laptop, or a decent cheap computer which is what most people need anyways, not the 300W+ monsters that seem to be the norm these days for anything with a video card that is near the high end.

Most laptop power supplies are like 100->200W at the most. And they charge the battery as well as let you use the computer, so if you've got a full battery then it's probably less.
