Dumped the IDE hard drive results this morning. CF was done a couple of weeks ago. Graphical:Text version:
CF worth it? Oh heck yeah. No sounds whatsoever. Feels weird now to have a spinning disk in there. Also, if something goes wrong, it's a dual slot adaptor, not like I can't put another card in there to get another bootable card for another application. Or if it runs into trouble, pull the card and put a new one in, but the Industrial variants have a MTBF of 1 million hours, so I figure I have a long ways to go.
Mac details: Oh yeah and I dumped MacBench 4.0 onto the hard drive, I wasn't about to run it off the network or CD.
