No one is excited because it's an OCZ drive and TD rebate.

To be fair I haven't had a OCZ drive fail on me yet. The two failed SSDs I had were Western Digital and Mushkin. I've never dealt with TD rebates in the old days but had very good luck within the last couple years.

So Ricochet hasn't had any problems with OCZ drives and after recycling years old rumours about TD rebates actually says he's had good luck with them.

Wonder why he didn't write a positive note?

~ $0.50 / gigabyte SSD seems rather good to me.

I'm only pointing out why this hasn't gotten the attention it deserve. ~$.50/gig for SSD is hot. My own personal experience is only anecdotal that wouldn't persuade a lot of people here who had sworn off OCZ and TD.

No need to remind them of old prejudices.

I'm a Brit and I am s-o-o-o tired of Americans talking about bad British food which is based on decades old memories of US Servicemen from WW II.

Which reminds me - anyone want to tell me of the glories of American Cuisine?

This is warm. I got this drive a few weeks ago for $99 AMIR at Tiger Direct. It's been great so far.

Something is weird happening. I ordered this morning and it's already has a tracking number. However, it says UPS but the number has no letters in it and it looks more like a USPS tracking number.

Errrr... I was in London in 2000 and ended up eating McDonalds because the local food was so disgusting. Was planning to stay a week but left after 3 days to go back to Paris.

Paula Deen made a heart attack inducing hamburger by putting a burger between two Krispe Kreme doughnuts. KFC tried to up the ante by using breaded chicken in the place of bread for a sandwich.

America brings the heart attack into cuisine.

You're welcome.

UPS Mail Innovations®? Basically shipper hands it off to UPS, who transports it to your local post office, which then delivers to you. It is a cheaper way to ship since UPS is good at moving ground freight, while USPS is good at hitting all addresses daily.

The KFC Double Down is actually pretty tasty. Yes, I've eaten one. It is skinless chicken breast meat, which is reasonably lean. The entire sandwich is supposedly 540 calories according to their site, and 610 calories (330 from fat) according to their nutrition guide. Either way, you get a tasty sandwich that keeps you feeling full (all that protein) for a long time.

As a comparison, a Jack in the Box Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger officially has 907 calories (499 from fat) though some third party sites report it as over 1000 calories. No, I've never eaten one with bacon, but I've eaten scores of the normal Ultimate Cheeseburger years ago.

It's cheap but it's also less reliable. I have an SSD that has gone missing right now that disappeared at the hand-off.

Newegg sent me something by FedEx/USPS. Took exactly 7 days from CA to MA. Fine by me for Free Shipping on a very low value item.

Tracking shows arrival on Tuesday Dec. 18 now. I hope mine does not go missing. Dude that would suck and it might take forever to get the money back.
Thanks.
