Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, the world’s third largest producer of hard disk drives (HDDs) said it had shipped one million perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) hard drive after six months of regular production. Hitachi expects to produce more than four million PMR hard drives by the end of 2006.

“The transition to perpendicular recording technology is essential for continued growth of the hard drive industry, which is why Hitachi invested significant time and resources to achieve a solid product in the Travelstar 5K160,” said Shinjiro Iwata, chief marketing officer, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.

Remember remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.

Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!
A penny loaf to feed the Pope.
A farthing o' cheese to choke him.
A pint of beer to rinse it down.
A [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG] of sticks to burn him.
Burn him in a tub of tar.
Burn him like a blazing star.
Burn his body from his head.
Then we'll say ol' Pope is dead.

Hip hip hoorah!
Hip hip hoorah!

Any1 live near a council estate? I do, they are supposed to be poor etc. but what annoys me is the fact they have 5 days around the 5th where basically every house spends like 2000 in fireworks and they start as soon as it beginning to go dark and end at like 10pm. The fact that the cat went missing annoys me and that it just doesn't stop for agggges and aggggges...I'm sat here with a headache now! It takes a lot to do that (i'm a hardcore music fan) and I think they just chose the loudest possible. Rant over :p

My neighbours round here can't put on a decent show. They just send 1 firework off every 10 minutes, which makes the dog bark for ages each time! :cussing:

I took my daughter to one of the organised displays. She loved the bonfire but fell asleep 5 minutes into the actual display!
