    Rhodopsin! Works @ 77 deg above absolute zero - temp of LN2 :)

    Funny thing, reading the bits resets them, so after reading a bit, another laser needs to set the state back. God love progress!

    Good find :toast:

    Yea, that was all part of the quantum state back then, not to mention the clothes. Hahahhaaaaa

    Crazy stuff.

    The 80s where the time of the real thinkers IMO

    I grew up around the oil tech power. You name it, I seen it before.

    SDD is one that I didn't see.....

    BUT I have seen test ram drives before. The HDD they had maxed out at 1GB, but getting data to them was slow. They did start to work on for a while pure RAM hardrives, before they gave up on $$$$$ issues:(


    What I see in ten years
    SDD the new internal HDD

    no more CD no more DVD no more of that
