people keep saying that maybe the next cryptocoin is going to wreck the ssd or the memory market, and i hate these people so much. decentralization getting coopted by a bunch of loons is such a tragic thing unto itself, but to have these loons also all be committed to consuming disproportionately massive amounts of computing resources is such a pathetic drag on the rest of us.
the Seagate Exos X16 16TB drive i've had my eye on has gone from $320 -> $380, and a bunch of places are out of stock. Amazon price is way higher right now.
it's a 2 year old hard drive at this point, and i feel like i could hold off. but i am indeed quite very much running out of space. this could all blow over,
