"The Unipod does offer IDE access that outperforms the internal IDE interface"... :cooldude:
I'm told that the PC hard disks tend to wear out faster because it's system works the HD harder to retrieve both files/programmes and system instruction all from the HD. :rolleyes: As I understand, RISC OS is more 'Efficient' with it's instruction in Flash Rom, hence the HD doesn't need to work harder giving RISC OS HDs (generally speaking) a longer life span. Therefore, in the article statement I mentioned first, would a high performance IDE in this Unipod work the RISC OS HD faster, thus giving it a shorter life span? :blush:
Finally, does a much larger memory (like the 192Mb RAM, 60GB HD in the article) installed on a computer, increase the :sparky: speed performance of the machine?
Forgive my comments for I am not technically computer minded, :bowdown: just putting together info as I try to figure all this out! :wink:
Moving tributes to Paul Vigay flood in Hundreds of heartfelt tributes have been paid to popular RISC OS advocate and ISP owner Paul Vigay, who was found dead off the south coast on Friday morning. Close friends described civil liberties campaigner Paul, 44, as "kind, sincere and patient" and "an extremely clever deep-thinker". 4 comments, latest by harmsy on 2/3/09 9:43AM.
