Now all we have to do is convince the bloody disk manufacturers that
they _really_ should not be charging 4 to 5 times more just for the
privilege of putting a SCSI board on the drive.  AFAICT the level of
difficulty in implementing SCSI vs ATA is moot so, from my limited
view, there is no reason for the price diff.  I can buy an IBM 45G,
7200 rpm IDE drive for AUS$450, the same number of bucks gets me a
9.1Gig, 7200 rpm SCSI drive from Seagate - that sucks.  I like SCSI, I
want SCSI but, oi vey, the premium.  Bastards.
