It's ALIVE!!!

Ripped 'er apart and cleaned everything out. Added new Arctic Silver thermal compound, put the new drives in and added the new vid card.

Don't judge me, I don't hunt, or fish, or sports ... I geek out, so this is my snow-machine, my 4-wheeler and a powerful workhorse to get everything I need done.

I can't believe I NOW have the SAME storage capacity that the shuttle data silos held after the data was beamed back to earth.

I got a chance to see these monsters while working at PanCanadian Petroleum. Each Silo held 6 TB of digital tape data on individual tapes and PanCanadian had 2 silos that they were in the process of replacing. There were I think 8 readers total (4 ea). and these 2 silos were married so that a tape could pass through to the other to be read if all the tape drives in one were in use!

So yeah, Digital Dr builds custom PC setups for whatever purpose you require. I source only high quality parts and use the best components and accessories for my builds. Call me or drop by for a demonstration if you'd like to see it in action!

It's so nice when doing research to be able to have all the screens open that I need! I love my little command centre.

Now I can get a suntan and have supplemental heating for my living room! :p

Have a great, awesome, spectacular day my friends!
