Re: filmscanners: yet *another* low cost way to avoid the future
This is getting downright silly. How do you know upgrading to an
LS-4000 (even if it had SCSI interfacing) wouldn't bring your system
down? I don't see how you can even risk leaving the room is your whole
livelihood is dependent upon your system being 100% reliable.
I don't have a "production system" but even I have about 5 functional
computers here (and numerous non-functional, as well... most were given
to me). I've a 486, a pentium 100, a pentium 75 and a 386 laptop, and
my main system, a Celeron 500. Seriously, if you have only one system
which can never go down you had better be running Linux (;-))...
Heck, even your washing machine will need some downtime while you
convert it into a breadmaker! ;-)
