Today Seagate announce the results of a magnetic recording demonstration, setting a world record of 421 Gbits per square inch (421 Gbit/in2). The achievement is the equivalent of storing 4,000 hours of digital video on your PC. What makes this all the more impressive, is that it was made possible using perpendicular recording heads and media created with currently available production equipment.

At the demonstrated density level, Seagate expects the capacity ranges to result in solutions ranging in 40GB to 275GB for 1-and 1.8-inch consumer electronics drives, 500GB for 2.5-inch notebook drives, and nearly 2.5TB for 3.5-inch desktop and enterprise class drives. At 2.5TB capacity, a hard drive would be capable of storing 41,650 hours of music, 800,000 digital photographs, 4,000 hours of digital video or 1,250 video games. Seagate anticipates that solutions at these density levels could begin to emerge in 2009.

it's one that comes with dreamweaver. i knew normal frames were out of date but didnt think iframes were.

Will have a long list of thumbnails and dont really want to have a long page as the actual photo will be at the top. dont want to go near normal frames so thought iframes would probs be the best option.

EDIT: need not panic, the numpty that i am has found the problem! i forgot to close the iframe tag of, oops!
I'll post when i've finsihed the whole site to see what you lot think.
