    People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.

    Dang, if you used 64GB ones, that's quite a bit of space (Also over seven grand lol)! I haven't played around with jump drives much, but can you RAID, or JBOD them?

    You can, but since thumbdrives usually don't have write-balancing, it's generally not a good idea to use them for constant use. At that point, you'd be better off using SSDs. 64x64GB thumbdrives (assuming RAID0 or JBOD) comes to ~4TB at a ~$7400, whereas the 250GB OCZ Solid Series, which are nice and cheap at ~$630 each, equivalent capacity would come to ~$5000, and while not stellar SSDs, would almost definitely be faster/more stable than thumbdrives.

    Thank you sir (Hope I did the Rep right)! Wish I had the cash to burn to setup something like that. Just for the novelty of it! Great conversation piece I'd imagine!

    Well lets see. I have 6 external drives, 3 external dvd burners, iTouch cord, joystick, headphones, 3 single cf card readers, 2 printers, 9 jump drives, and a usb fan. That leaves 23 open for other stuff. HMMMM....
