2/8     A Berkeley Style peace protest in Australia: (from
        \_ I love it when hippies support mass murderers. It's got such a
           long tradition.

2/8     What is a good deal for external firewire (IEEE 1394) hard disk
        right now?
        \_ is the answer to all computer questions of the
           form "what is a good deal for X computer thing right now."
        \_ $50 external enclosure from compgeeks or newegg or wherever, and
           then use whatever IDE drive you want.
        \_ You know you still have to plug in the external drive into
           the wall, not to mention lug around the AC adapter.
           \_ no, many can get power off the firewire bus.  -tom
           \_ fyi, most notebooks have the small firewire port, which
              doesn't deliver power
           \_ not for 2.5" HDDs.  there are some 3.5" HDD enclosures that
              can run everything off bus-power, but they're much less common.
              Even if you do need an adapter or a power cord, a drive
              enclosure is still more portable than carrying around a PC...
              \_ I believe you can get usb->ac dongles
                 \_ not quite. there are, hoewver, USB->DC and PS/2 DC dongles.
           \_ Can you carry a hard disk alone onto a plane?  Don't they
              sometimes require you to show it can work as a hard disk?
              \_ I tried that and they made me go into a little room with
                 no windows where a 6 foot tall federal agent named Hilga
                 forced me to strip.
        \_ So, what's a good 2.5" HDD brand that runs powered off firewire?
           I keep seeing these no-name enclosures.  I know the Iogear runs
           powered off USB 2.0, though I haven't tried it.
           \_ 2.5" HDD brand or 2.5" enclosure brand?  Most enclosures are
              about the same; just make sure you get one with an Oxford 911

           \_ the next guy on a skateboard to spit on your windshield
              could well be me.
              \_ Unlikely.  I don't drive in the slums.

        includes as much of the building as possible. doesn't
        seem to have any and I've tried looking elsewhere. Anyone
