    But, of course, that's not even a guess. It is the
    equivalent of a five-year-old making up an invisible
    monster to explain the mess in his room.

    What a wonderfully mature response.

    Of course, the fact that this IS a Usenet groupOr means
    that one can always review the entire thread before
    jumping in with both feet in one's mouth...unless, of
    course, that's simply too much trouble for you.

    Or has this simply not yet occured to you?

    Please feel free to do so. Also please at least try to imagine
    the degree of mental anguish that your "filtering" of my posts
    will cause me. I have no idea how I will manage to carry on,
    and yet, somehow, I suspect that I will.

  4. Bullshit. I suppose that you think that the FET is the modern
    equivalent of the Deforest Audion?

    Freescale has ONE lousy MRAM part, a lousy 256k * 16 at $22.51 each, per
    thousand. they are overpriced, and require magnetic shielding. Talk
    about a "Boutique Part" It would take eight of them to replace a single
    flash memory, and the price takes them completely out of the picture.
    You lose, it would NEVER pass design review. Its too expensive, takes
    too much board space and requires special shielding, yet has nothing on
    the positive side. OTOH, the "Capstore" SRAM that was sold by ZMD was a
    very useful part that I put into a design that is on the International
    Space Station. http://www.zmd.de/pdf/CapStore.pdf

    You are too dense to realize that EE times is a "gee whiz"
    publication, like Popular Mechanics and the "Flying Car" articles they
    used to run. yes, it COULD be built, but there is no valid reason to do
    it.


    If you like MRAM so much, why don't you put 4 GB of it in your PC?


    So, once again it seems you are the DOLT, dolt.

  5. In real years, or marketing years? I guess that you like to let
    marketing people blow smoke up your ass?

    Maybe he IS a marketeer. Sounds like one; knows lots of words, but doesn't
    know zip.
     

  7. I doubt that he's smart enough for marketing, even though that is
    near the bottom of the corporate food chain. Maybe he's the Janitor at
    EE times? Janitors get a lot of smoke, too.

  8. I think he's talking about this
    http://www.eetimes.com/news/latest/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=199501146

    From it
    and this
    Their home page at www.accessopt.com isn't exactly confidence
    inspiring and product specs hasn't been updated since 2005. Given the
    comment in the article that they *need* 8 million in near term
    funding, I suspect they might be talking up vapourware in order to
    raise funds just to operate.

    Although seriously, the 16x OC768 comment is irrelevant because that's
    refering to the networking module's speed, not the optical storage.
     
  9. You're assuming there are analogous parts, which there might not be so
    your dream photonic PC is likely impossible at this point, at least in
    the vague terms you described it. So until you have a better idea of
    what/how to achieve this, I'll say consign it to the attic storage.

    Anymore, Janator at EE Times is likely one of the more respected
    jobs. At least one presumes they do an honest day's work, rather
    than lay on their back with their legs spread.
     

  11. At least his being a janitor would be an honest day's work.
    Something he can't do on Usenet. :(

    As well as an E-1 grade, holier than thou piece of shit can, I suppose.

    Because that is not the application it is meant for, dipshit.
    Hardly.

    It is really sad how you react to being found uniformed on a topic.

    First, you deride the publication (which is not as you describe, btw),
    then you deride the products in it.

    Real good, Terrell. Par for the course for an asswipe that posts a
    picture of a donkey EIGHT times in one thread, all because you dislike
    the person you are having your "mature" discourse with in the thread.

    Great job, asshole.

    You lost. Get over it.

    The technology comes from JPL.

    Are you gonna put them down too now, boy?
     

  16. Yawn. Look at the thousands of ideas they have pumped out since
    their inception that lead nowhere. It is a research center, ad their
    job is to test theories. Some work, and some don't. Think "Tax funded
    Edison Labs".

  17. Look in the miroor and take the "I'm an ass" sign off.

  18. Gee, you don't get along with anyone but Radium, do you? That speaks
    volumes about your character.

    Michael, it looks like you've snagged another Dimbulb nym.
     

  20. It doesn't matter, he went into the bucket as of last night.
