Went out to dinner with our Western Digital rep last night. They really want to push the Raptor drives. I have one in my personal system ( a pre-engineering sample ), but I'm going to hit them up for another one that I can buy at a reduced rate for more home testing. We went to a seafood place called "Seastar" in Bellevue. It was OK, but I didn't really like it. Too croweded, too expensive, and the crab pasta thing I ordered tasted like brine. I couldn't even eat half of it. At least I wasn't buying (;

Oh, think twice about every buying from Directron. I ordered a 9800SE video card from there, a very specific one, but they sent me the wrong one. When I complained to my sales guy, he proceeded to call me stupid and that I didn't know what video card I ordered. After my next nasty-gram, their customer service people contacted me to quiet me down, and long story short, they don't have the card they advertise, and I'm getting a full refund, no restocking fee, and they're paying shipping. Regardless, I'll never buy from them again.
