freeware? is that those things you need for windows?
Are the solid state drives drop-in replacements for a standard hard drive? (on my laptop). That would probably rejuvenate and extend the life of my machine quite a bit.
afaik they just have usual pata/sata interfaces. most probably sata interaces will be more common these days.
maybe a CF adaptor will suit your needs too?
a good 90% (or above) of SSD drives available are SATA-II or better.
good old plug-and-play interface
...rumors of dell bying amd?
Well...mine is old enough that it has a pata interface. The ssd are either too small or outrageously expensive. Sooo....I'm kinda outta luck. My job situation is such that it would be unwise to spend any money on new equipment at this time. The laptop is just a luxury anyways.
try putting an USB stick inside or such
some soldering, there you go.
The company my wife works for decided that they needed an Internet connection.
After some searching and questioning of neighbors, they settled on DSL from a local provider. After some back'n'forth with the provider, the day finally arrives when the DSL is supposed to be turned on. The DSL modem had already been shipped and had arrived at the office. They go to plug in the modem and can't get it to lock onto the signal no matter which wall jack they try.
This is a very small company with only a part-time IT guy who only works third shift, and the DSL needs to be active ASAP. Thus, my wife asks if I could help.
I grab some tools that I think I'll need: punch tool, RJ11/RJ45 crimper, RJ45 line tester, tone generator, and a small bag of RJ45 connectors. I get there and, lo and behold, the modem definitely won't train no matter which jack I use. They have a "patch panel" in the adjoining garage, which is basically a mess.
Anyways, after sorting out what's what, I realize that I need to use the tone generator to tone out which pair is coming in from the junction box on the side of the building into the office, and which pair I can use inside the office to connect to a wall jack for the modem to plug into.
The problem: the tone generator I have only has an RJ11 jack. This is great as long as I have a another RJ11 jack to plug into, but leaves me with no way to connect to the punch blocks in the garage or the junction box outside.
The solution: A quick trip to Radio Shack to see what they have. I end up getting a modular telephone connector (one of those big plastic blocks with an RJ11 jack on one side, and four brass posts on the back) and a pack of test leads with alligator clips. Plug the tone generator into the modular connector, attach one end of the test leads onto the modular conector's posts, and the other end to the punch block. Voila!
The smack my forehead moment: After toning out everything I needed and punching down the right pairs, I go to put the tone generator back into its carrying case and, lo and behold, there's a pre-fabricated adapter with an RJ11 plug on one end and test leads with alligator clips on the other!!!
Let this be a lesson to all those who have never done this kind of work before.
Make sure to unpack everything first! You never know what you'll find that you may need!
well, they just command the local police via the usual whinings about copyright violations, but as that article points out, it seems to be working pretty well.
Some observers are also suggesting that there exists a clause in the AMD-Intel cross licensing agreement that would cause that agreement to terminate if AMD is acquired.
Smile baby Smile!
