DNA is binary data.

G-C = 1
A-T = 0

I fail to see how this could work outside of "We have a lots of bits. We don't know what they mean, but there are a lot."
Yup.... maybe place a header on a cluster of them but traversing to find the packet in a liquid will be hard.

ReRAM, Memristor, PRAM, racetrack, etc... some of these technologies ARE available already.

The issue is the mass production and adoption take time. This is really really really complex stuff.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

DNA is quaternary. The Double strandedness of DNA is like RAID 10.

I like my hard drives shaken, not stirred.

Current: '00 Nissan Primera P11-144 QG18DE with tons of little mods and upgrades thumb.gif


If you're overclocking and something hasn't crashed while testing yet, you aint pushing hard enough!

What ever happened to those holographic cubes that were supposed to replace Bluray?

Terry Gilliam has already seen this coming.

In the movie "The Zero Theorem", data is stored as different colored liquids.

So the green tube the character is holding contains petabytes of data.

Will my data evaporate if my rig gets too hot?

I can see the next OCN help thread.

Exploiting predictable changes in particle configuration with temperature is a novel idea but....

You can fit 8 microSD cards in a tablespoon now: (128GBx8=1TB), even 8 NAND packages (8x 8x128Gb) wouldn't be too far from fitting in a table spoon.

Yeah.....i still play WC3 TFT, so what....
