It is a nice blogging solution, but that default theme is killing me. I think it's called Kubrick right?

Yes. It's pretty plain. Not really ugly, but so boring.

However, I'd take 100 default Word Press installs over 10 circa-1999 Geocities pages.

Well, my southern neighbour, I'd check again if I were you, prices have gone down considerably and if you're Dutch languaged you might be able to understand and order these: http://www.zercom.nl/index.php?p=35&f=1&s=1&a=13570. It is even in Eindhoven, and if you're close to the border it might be handy to visit as well.
The only question I have, is the CL of 5 an disadvantage to the CL 4 I see advertised as well for Corsair and other memory?

actually I'm french languaged..well I do undestand the article but I saw some upstairs saying it can ben nice to change only one chip...I do not find where in the article they're saying that...

maybe two 1GB are now a bit more affordable but isn't it a bit stupid to throw away my brand new two 512mb? I'd like to keep one...

I don't know if in Wallonia it is just as populair to sell on second hand sites as it is in The Netherlands and Flanders, but if you can sell with a bit less than new (approx. 2/3) it might be interesting for a lot of people to buy your memory for their MacMini, Macbook (Pro) or other laptop machines and it is off your hands. Of course you can start with 1 stick of 1GB and buy another one later, but are you able to get a matched pair later which is exactly the same? I wonder if their will be heavier memorysticks later of, say 2 or 3 GB and the acMini will be able to use that?

Try to make an ad here: http://www.2dehands.be/ and http://www.kapaza.be/. They are Dutch languaged sites but if you put an advert in "Francophone" I guess most Flemish people won't mind and buy anyway.
Good luck! Smile

Going back to the review itself, I found the hard drive comparison results very interesting, especially the way that hard drive performance deteriorates as the drive fills up. This leads me to a question related to my own setup. I partition all my drives into two volumes, which allows me to run utilities that require the unmounting of a volume for repair or optimization (e.g., DiskWarrior). My question is how partitioning of a drive affects performance. For read/write performance which matters, the percent fullness of the drive or the percent fullness of the volume?

I'd ask in the forums testing these harddrives, isn't a forum linked to:
