They are a kind of "write only" memory, which was advertised by mistake on a technical magazine, which received a number of requests for more details on it and the editor had to explain how this mistake had happened.

The older OCZ Vertex Plus is performing substantially better then the Samsung. I took it off this laptop and put it a a second disk on my older SUN WS as a swap disk.

My data are those of the hdparm tool of Linux.The performance of the Samsung 840 is vastly inferior to the one advertised.

One pilot locked out of the cabin, no message sent. This looks like a repetition of the first Malaysia plane disappearance..Suicide?

Samsung 840 250 GB gives me about 100 MB/s on this HP 635 running SuSE Linux 13.1.Much better performance of an OCZ 120 GB, on my SUN WS which gives more than 200 MB/s as second disk. The first is a 1 TB hybrid Seagate 2.5 inches which gives the same performance of the Samsung although it spins at only 5400 RPM.

I just ordered a new power supply using this laptop. The old power supply installed by SUN worked eight years. Hats off to SUN, now Oracle.

I had a short last night on my SUN WS,2008 vintage. I thought it could be the power supply, so I took it off and installed a brand new 500 W power supply on my shelves. Dead on arrival. Now I have to order a new one. Computers are useless without electricity.

In the case of any failure the pilots would have signaled a mayday. A DC 10 lost all three engines and was crash landed in an airport saving half of the passengers. A DC 9 had its engines shut down by rain and landed on a highway. A Tupolev 154 lost physically an engine taking off from Linate airport (I heard the thud from nearby Mondadori building) and the pilots made a turnaround landing.
What strike me is the pilots' silence. Were they unconscious or killed?

Looks like somebody was flying it. The pilots or somebody else?

The descent rate was about 3000 feet/minute, which is quite normal, says the captain.

The Alitalia captain says that in an emergency the pilots must launch a radio call and insert a code in the transponder which automatically signals the airspeed, elevation and heading of the plane to the flight controllers, also to avoid collisions with other planes.

Yes, but the French copilots stalled the plane. An Alitalia captain says that there was no mayday. Why?

Yet another sad day in aviation Tullio.
A passenger plane Airbus 320 crashed in the southern French Alps. The plane, which is reported to have had 150 people on board, was en route from Barcelona to Düsseldorf.

Can't see a cause 24 year old plane but Lufthansa maintenance,Hijacking?

Buona notte Julie Almeno tu scrivi in italiano,mentre i miei amici italiani non entrano mai in questo Italian Cafe. Io sono triestino e mi piace il caffe' di Haiti e Columbia piu' di quello brasiliano.

I forgot to mention Ingemar Stenmark. I don't know much about football players but Niels Liedholm was a member of the Grenoli trio, with Gunnar Nordahl and maybe Lars Gren.

There is not much we in Italy know about Sweden,besides the Nobel Prizes, Ikea, the ship Vasa and the Vasaloppet.There was a movie with Alberto Sordi depicting the Italian ignorance of Sweden and its people, maybe "Il diavolo". A few people know Cristina di Svezia.I remember reading a book "Kristin daughter of Lawrans", but I don't remember its author. Or was it about Norway?

I saw Tina on tears in TV. But she is a strong girl and maybe this defeat will make her abandon the idea of leaving the races. Kudos to Nadia Fanchini, best timing in second stage of giant slalom and to Marta Bassino, a promising youngster, fourth in the first stage. And kudos to Giuliano Razzoli, an Olympics winner,silver medal in slalom.
