Working on making MySQL run better on new hardware means.... new
hardware :)

I remember buying a super computer for $1.5 million in 1997 that had
far less capacity then this machine.

I got it for around $8K total (nearly half of that was for the Kingston memory... 16gigs).

What are you looking at for solid state disks? Come August/September I am going to pick one up to test MySQL on.

Yeah. It's a shame memory is STILL so expensive.

We're basically just going to wait every few months and re-price SSDs. The higher end ones are still to expensive. Getting there though......
