And speaking of Micropolis,

I have a Micropolis 1GB drive downstairs that we got back when the 1GB size came in a SCSI or PATA-IDE variety at pretty much the same price. (I think the diff was like $20)...

I really wish SCSI hadn't gone so high in price like it did or I'd have stuck with it.
It seems to me these days that SCSI is way out there rather than just being worth a few extra bucks.

Oh well.
