Re: ULTRA ATA/100 announced

On the plus side, I have seen both hot swap IDE and more than 2 devs on an
ide channel. On the minus side, the only reason they worked is because
IDE was too STUPID to notice. <grin> Both scsi and ide have their places
and their uses. When I first played with IDE it did some odd hundred
kbytes a second, and scsi did 10meg/s. Now it's 100 to 160, so IDE has
done alot of catch up, however there's still alot more to go before it
overtakes scsi. It'll be intresting, but for now they both have niches,
and will for as far as I can see.

That is an announcement for another day.
        Once I perfect the disconnect...
        Selection queue...
        Service request interrupt...

You will hear about me.....
It took me 6 hours to think it into reality.
Then another 6 weeks to make it functional.

If I tell you everything I have up the old sleeve, then the surprize is

Again you have to do more than think outside of the BOX, it must be done
without one.
