Subject: [midatlanticretro] Solid State Disk
This may not be sufficiently retro for this group, but I'm on the
for a Solid State Disk with a 50pin SCSI interface.
I know they were made, but when they were made, were horribly expensive
(like $2000), but now I'm hoping to find one in the used market that is
a mere 2 gigs or so, and useless to anyone but someone like me.
I'm working on a "upgrade" for the machine that runs my website
), and figured that a solid state disk would be
less prone to failure than a standard HD. Unfortunately, I'm also
planning to still house my website in a "Sparc Lunchbox" form factor,
which limits me to a 3.5 inch, 50pin scsi drive.
Failing that, the other solution would be a crazy hack involving a
flash-based thumbdrive, a USB to IDE converter, and then an IDE to SCSI
converter (since I can't seem to find a USB to SCSI converter directly).
Anyhow, thoughts, comments, and
