View Full Version : Hard Drive Prices?????????????????
What the hell has happened to HDD prices crazy? Is it for Christmas I will have to buy elsewhere they have doubled and then some CRAZY!:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
Really? I've heard there was a little bit of rain in an area where a large majority of them are made. For some reason, they seem to have stopped production due to the trickle of water coming through the doors and windows.
The prices are changing almost hourly as they do not know what's happening with demand & supply.
With the water will come dysentery and cholera as well as the occasional crocodile, homelessness and starvation. My intended hard drive has gone from Â£64 to Â£109 but is Â£143 elsewhere. So which would you rather have, a few quid on your HDD or the flood. We should count ourselves lucky.
Unfortunately there is a huge shortage of hard drives due to the floods in Thailand and this has severely affected prices everywhere
I knew there was a Dabs article, went looking for it last night but couldn't find it.
@jenna_dabs, looks like there's still a small problem with the realative links to the images on that page. Looks like they're using a local file structure with \'s instead of /'s.
The link's now working
Hi Sharon, nope it's still showing "wd-thailand-factory-flood1" instead of the three part image which includes the drowning 4x4/van(?).
The html needs to be changed from "\Images\1\merch\vendors\dabs\thailandfloods\wdimag es1.jpg" to "/Images/1/merch/vendors/dabs/thailandfloods/wdimages1.jpg".
Weird, I'm double posting for a reason (sorry).. In my previous post, the the last paragraph I'm seeing a space here:
The html needs to be changed from "\Images\1\merch\vendors\dabs\thailandfloods\wdima<here> ges1.jpg" to "/Images/1/merch/vendors/dabs/thailandfloods/wdimages1.jpg".
however when I try to edit it, there's no space. Interestingly, I've not put a space before the <here> in this post but there's one there when I preview it ???
Edit: The space keeps moving!
