Careful Reg - Mind your PC

"The random 4KB figures are even more extreme; up to 25,000 read IOPS but only up to a niggardly 2,500 write IOPS."

Well done in describing write speeds as niggardly. The fact the word has rendered many a journalist, politician or writer jobless, does not deter the ever adjectivally adventurous REG.

And yes, before you accuse me of being part of the "PC Brigade" I am very aware of the etymology of niggardly, but it still has too much controversy to use carefree.

As long as we can look forward to queer performance, blond chip rating and handicapped video rendering frame rates. Walk that tight rope!

Sparks fly over electric shock dealing Dell laptop


Inspiron 9300 had the same problem

I have an Inspiron 9300 bought back in 2005. Ever since it has shocked in some places. The edge of the screen lid and the outside edge of the USB ports.

It was the inconsistency of the shock/tingling that stopped me from reporting it to Dell. Sometimes it would go weeks without shocking. Plugged into the same power supply, socket everything, then one day there was a reminder POW!... What was weird was if I plugged the same power brick into my newer inspiron 9400, it doesn't shock? So, you have to question why their solution was to replace the bricks

I think Dell could sell it as a feature. Certainly, it wakes you up better than a cup of coffee and as for falling asleep and dribbling on the keyboard, that would be just a death wish...

Incidently, is this the source of the spark for battery fires last year?
