I've got a first gen Corsair Force F115 here that was the boot drive on my first Nehalem rig, its firmware went away about a year ago.

It is a brick.

The reviews for this Corsair drive are terrible. One of them recommends getting a samsung instead.

Quote
Cons: It dies alot. I've had to RMA this drive 3 times. First time it died in 5 months, second time it died in 8 months, third time it died in 4 months.

I was running newest firmware and all the SSD win7 tweaks: trim, ahci, moved temp/page files, no sleep, etc

Corsair customer support is lacking. This last time I RMA'ed my drive they sent me back a refurbished drive WITHOUT the friggin mounting bracket that was originally included, so now I have no mounting bracket and a unreliable refurbished drive... for shame corsair... for same!!

Get a samsung

Other Thoughts: read the reviews on the samsung drives.. they are worth the extra money.

yeah well, we didn't know all that at the time, lol

running Samsung NVMe boot drives now

Samsung isn't the only company that makes good or reliable SSDs. I have a bunch of computers in my house, all with non-Samsung SSDs. I outfitted all the computers in my office with non-Samsung SSDs a couple years ago too.

Out of them all, I've only had two die - a 32GB and 64GB. They were both pretty early models with SandForce controllers.

With Samsung, you're mostly paying for the brand name IMO.

Perhaps I should go to bed early and check the charts between 3 am and 6 am my time. That is usually when the really big volume moves happen.

Any idea what's the reason behind the extra-pump of Monero?

No idea. Some people are blaming the pump on anticipation of the Monero V fork, but this pump is too sudden for that.

Check out Altered Carbon (read the book before watching the show)
I realized I already had it. I got it a long time ago after reading good things about it on Reddit, but I never got around to actually read it. I think it'll be the next SF book I read.

Quote
or even more original Schild's Ladder (both published in 2002).
This might be a bit over the top for me. When plots in fiction get to the point of having so much cutting edge science as a founding element, I'd rather read an actual essay if I'm interested. With a work of fiction, you never know the boundary between genuine and made up unless you're familiar with the territory. I might give it a tentative skim.

Didn't knew there was going to be a fork. I only have a few moneros and I have them on an exchange as there's no hardware wallet support for it (yet). Should I move them to a software wallet to benefit from the fork?

No. The fork is called Monero V. Basically, claiming coins on the fork will compromise your own privacy and likely the privacy of the entire Monero network. Anyway, the forked coins will probably be near-worthless.

Compromise the privacy... but... but... free money?!

I hate hard drives...fickle, delicate beasts

No freaking kidding. HDDs are obsolete relics from the 20th century second millennium.

It's time to move on from moving-parts contraptions. glass-bulb technologies and other fragile inefficient garbage.

I've been using SSDs since the days of IDE (PATA) and have never had an SSD fail.

I originally got into SSDs for performance (used HDDs in RAID-0 and RAID-5 before that), backing up to HDDs. It was the HDDs that actually failed. I was mainly seeking fast writes and reads. The extremely lower failure rate of SSDs was just a bonus.

What's the longest time you have used an SSD for? I thought they were supposed to wear out faster than HDDs.

I'm pushing 5 years on my oldest one, and  it has been flawless.  Pretty sure I've never had a HDD last that long, or even close.  My newest NVMe Pro is ridiculously fast.  Friends don't let friends HDD  Wink

Was your oldest one a cheap brand, an expensive brand, or a mid range brand?

All Samsung.  The old one I'm assuming, as it is in a sealed Samsung laptop...
I think lately Samsung came out a latest model of laptop, that's I'll wait it before I buy.

Not really free money.  You are selling the transaction history for that wallet (handing over the keys) for valueless tokens with no means of exchange, no wallet code,  no names and no answers.  Better to ignore it.

All my moneros are on an exchange right now so.... no tx history to protect. But, if it is valueless, then there's absolutely no point to claim it of course. In fact I don't use to claim my forks (except BCH which I have profited handsomely for a shitcoin) but I would like to be in position for a later claim if I decide it to be worth. If that means temporarily moving to a software wallet before the fork, it's ok.

I do agree on the not being free if you are giving out your privacy.... but, even if that were the case, my privacy would also be on sale "for the right price". It's just a matter of numbers adding up.
