its not that they die easily. flash ram be it ssd, usb key, sd card etc all have a limited number of writes. a higher iops drive should last longer then a lower rated drive. sppeds and iops aren't guaranteed. its up to, not that it will.darksusperiaWhat he said. The first generation SSDs to hit the consumer market was a brand new technology that the manufacturers barely had figured out yet, the rest of the industry even less. Most of the scary looking and extremely detailed "how to tweak your SSD so it will work right"-guides you can find online have their origins in a dark and distant past when TRIM wasn't invented yet and wear leveling was in the ameoba stage of its evolution. How power management of SSDs was done is the stuff of nightmares... Now that the technology has matured, you can if you want tweak them to get the most out of your benchmarks, but to use it every day and enjoy it, all you have to do is plug in the thing, install your OS, make one or two small changes, and... done.

Do SSDs die that easily? :( No, they don't. Modern SSDs are sturdy, and rarely die. They are temperamental about power settings and drivers sometimes, but die easily? No.

You know those big plastic turtles that are sandboxes for kids to play in? One of those in the garage (which was accessible from the house).br0kenrabbitShould have had at least three, better yet, six. Cats do not like having company while they do their box business, nor do they like sharing their box with other cats. So his cats used the plants out of sheer relief they had finally found a litter box that was only their own. That's basic Cat Psychology 101, and if the owner had bothered to learn how cats live when left to their own devices, he'd have known that.
lol that's on the owner then. I've never, in my life, had a cat that did its business outside of the box.Pirate700I have. He was seriously pissed, wanted to make a point, and most importantly, no one knew he had been locked in the bathroom for 12+ hours. I take full blame for that incident, the poor thing did not lock himself in there after all. And I thank him, deeply, for picking the shower stall and not the rug as the target of his "incident". The shower stall was rather easy to clean.
Or, you know, the cats piss in the potted plants as often as they do the litter box.br0kenrabbitPirate is right about the owners being at fault. No cat would ever choose potting soil over sand for their toilet if they thought they actually had a choice. Tell those cat owners to start cleaning the litter box more often than once a month. (I'm actually a cat person. The dog was my husband's idea.)
Yeah I was referring to indoor dogs. One of the my old buddies had two indoor labs and when you walked into their house, the smell would hit you like a slap to the face.Pirate700EW! Our lab gets baths the moment she starts to smell bad, exactly because she does live inside the house with us. She goes out in the backyard when she needs to, but 99% of the time, if we're home then she is in the house with us. We got her because we wanted a dog for company, it would defeat the purpose to lock her in a crate or yard. Also, she would make huge heart-breaking puppy eyes of misery at us if we did that, and those things should be illegal, or at least registered as deadly weapons.
To be fair to dogs, since they don't regularly bathe themselves, it comes down to lazy owners for them smelling like crap (which goes with that reliance thing again). You can certainly tell a dog house though when the owners don't regularly wash them. Good LORD, those homes smell like ass. :lol:Pirate700Nonsense. It goes with the dog thinking the dead bird he rubbed his back all over when he was rolling on the ground in the park smells like heaven, combined with lazy owners. A lot of dogs actively seek out stinky stuff and try to smear it all over them, it's up to the owners to remind them that they don't need to conceal their scent for hunting purposes anymore, and to bathe them when the reminder doesn't take.
As much as I like dogs also, it really is amazing how many basic instincts dogs lost in their domestication in contrast to cats. I'm not sure they did. Look at how they act when surrounded by humans who have no idea how to treat them or train them. More likely, they simply kept the "must please the pack leader"-instinct on a much higher priority than the others, as mots pack animals would. And I have one dog and two much older cats, who both were here before the dog. One of them taught the puppy the very first day that when a cat hisses and lifts a paw, it's time to move backwards. Fast.
[QUOTE="Rhazakna"]Cats, definitely. I have neither the time nor the inclination to take care of all the sh*t dogs need done for them. With cats you feed em then they do their own thing. Perfect pet.Pirate700
If you say we don't need automatic weapons we don't need cars that are capable of unsafe speeds. Both have no place in society, or at least in America where you legally can't surpass 70mph.FightingfanYou can in my state, and in many others. But the other point is kind of valid. No one needs a car that can drive 200mph just to get to work.
