OK brainiacs, we've got an IT cold case for you: Fatal disk errors on an Amiga 4000 with 600MB external SCSI unless the clock app is... just so

Buster

I'm going to guess it was dodgy Buster chip. That controlled the Zorro III bus in the A4000, and was quite buggy. The earlier revision 9 buster was pretty bad, revision 11 fixed a lot of faults.

Re: It's not just the 25%

If your a company director, your not self employed. Your an employee of your company, who can draw a salary and receive dividends. Self employment is for sole traders or people in ordinary partnerships.

Re: From a safe distance. In proper safety gear

Ignition has recently been reprinted. Its an excellent tome, with an intro by Isaac Asimov.

The fuel in a super draco system is one of the less hilarious fuels. Ignition details more, and some of the safety precautions and tests devised. Apparently the proper safety gear for handling chlorine triflouride is a good set of running shoes.

Re: Samsung would get a standing ovation

Theres a reason I'm still running 4.4.2 kitkat, rooted with crapware removed or disabled. Partioned SD card and a phone with optical zoom.

If samsung (or anyone) made a phone with optical zoom I'd buy it. But no one wants to do it a price that isnt more than a months rent.

Any suggestions for SD card brands? ive never managed to get brands other than Sandisk or Samsung to partition succesfully and not die in a week.

Doctor, doctor, I feel like my IoT-enabled vacuum cleaner is spying on me
