Storage sale SHOCK: WD to buy Hitachi GST


opposite view, from opposite world?

Really? How many WD drives have you had fail that quick? I've been using primarily WD for over 10 years (also used Maxtor, Seagate, Samsung and IBM / Hitachi during that time) and I've only had 1 of the WD drives start to fail (on SMART at least) while others have over 6 years uptime. Maxtor / Samsung just didn't impress with either speed or noise, IBM / Hitachi have the deathstar range and Seagate tended to write data in a manner designed to fragment a drives contents as much as possible. As a result I've stayed with WD, however I fear Hitachi could easily bring their standard of drives down.

How so?

Standard CIDR notification, a /16 network has a subnet mask of which is a Class B network.

Or are you refering to the original designation of Class address spaces whereby everything above is a Class C? (up until multicast)


/16 is not /24

"After all, nothing from the WAN should be using the standard class C reserved addresses -"

That would be a Class B, not a Class C.

Because it'll force decisions to be made based on a pesons gender. That's sexist. Be it supposed positive sexism or whatever. Don't get me wrong, I suspect a lot of the decisions are made for the wrong reasons at this point anyway and I find it far worse that anyone should need to consider putting something like this forward in the first place.

A pint isn't always a pint.

I can't believe no one's mentioned the difference between the US and UK pint... 7 US pints is a little over 5 1/2 in the UK... 5 1/2 pints in 4 hours.... that's not going to have much effect on anything for those around 13 stone.
