Besides, if I'm honest I like my Amiga's to be as heavy as possible. I don't like anything that's light, as light stuff to me tends to feel cheap. It's just a matter of personal taste.
The sarcasm was about having a drawer full of dead cf cards. I find that not very plausible unless your doing something to the cards they weren't designed for (and would likewise kill a harddrive). I understand people wanting ide. I just don't buy into the "cf cards isn't realible" stuff.
Like the fact that people wanting cdrom on their a500 to make it a cdtv can't do that with the cf card slot.
