Re: Reminds me of...

Man, I remember the i-RAM... Always wanted to get one, then saw how much it cost... unpopulated. I'd love a more up-to-date version that could hold a more meaningful amount of DRAM now, as battery tech and the cost of the DIMMs are much better than way back then. Mind you, you're only one extended power failure away from losing everything on it...

I do recall a similar drive that used a CF card and capacitors to back up the DRAM in the even of a power failure...

(One quick Google search later)

Aha! it was the ACARD ANS9010... And apparently they still make it. I may even see about getting one...

Edit: Never mind, still the same old one, and only uses DDR2... bleah. So much for that.
