    Are all PSU power cables the same?

    They are the same, so you can use the other one.

    Couldn't agree more with the last part of the sentence. But as someone who likes driving, I don't like the idea of removing the driver completely. ---------- Driving can be faster than public transport, but that really depends where you live. I live in a small town so it takes about 15 min to get to city center by car, and 20 by bus. Difference isn't massive, but it is faster.

    Not everyone can afford to rent or keep a second vehicle. Also even if something is rare or a one time thing, people like to be prepared for them. I mean, do you NEED airbags in your car? No for the 99.9999% of the time, but you will be really grateful to have them for that 0.0001% when you need them to keep your nose pointing outwards, instead of into your skull. When a new phone comes out and it isn't water resistant, people bring it up as bad point (which it definitely is for some people), but how many people actually need the water resistance and use it daily? Don't get me wrong, I am guilty of this. I have a saying for when someone asks me why I need feature X on a product Y, and I say "Point is to have it, not to use it" for that one time you actually need to use it.

    I agree with you that it is an exponential curve. Where our opinions differ is time period over which the curve is plotted, and our current position on that curve. But I did enjoy reading your lengthy comment. In my opinion (using processor analogy) we are at Nehalem, but there are still Sandy Bridge and Skylake to go through. Electric cars are good enough and usable, if you are satisfied with good enough. Others don't want to make sacrifices and are waiting for new generations to come.

    True, but they weren't really mass production vehicles, those came around 2010-ish. Anyway, that's just my point of view. We will see what will happen in the future.

    While I love traditional ICE cars, I am not completely against electric cars, they have their place. The main problem I see is that people are pushing them forwards even if they are not ready. Don't get me wrong, Teslas and Nissan leafs are not bad cars, they just appeal to many people yet. I mean it took us about 100 years to get regular cars to point where they are today. You can't expect electric cars to do same in 20. They simply need to be around on the market for some time and they will progress naturally. As more and more people buy electric cars, more and more will eventually end up on used market and new people will get to experience electrics at a reasonable cost. When they do they will be more likely to get another electric vehicle next. Currently it looks a bit like the beginning of the RGB crayze, when everyone just glued RGB everywhere they could, and it was awful. With time situation got better and now we have RGB that isn't just pure vomit.

    I just put 50% as a placeholder, I'm sure in reality it would be lower. I guess in USA electricity business is privatized, while in my country it is still run by the government, and knowing how we do things in my country, that isn't an impossible scenario.

    They will find a way. For instance, they could tax at the time of sale, so, lets say you wanted to buy $5000 solar system, but they put 50% tax. You would have to pay $7500 for that system. The $2500 would go to the government to "fill the hole" from not selling you electricity. As an example, several months ago, or a year, I don't remember exactly, there were some events that happened and the price of crude oil went down globally. As a result fuel prices everywhere went down, except in my county. Fuel went up in price that week.
  9. If you are that concerned, just delete one from one drive and see what happens. If nothing bad happens, delete the other one as well.
  10. What power supply do you have in the current system, as you said this one was lying around the house / spare? You can use this one, but I wouldn't use it for long, like few months till you can afford decent unit, something 40-50 dollars, 500W.

    ^^ this. The original person I replied to said that EVs will push people at installing solar panes and windmills for themselves to make electricity to fill up the car. I just pointed out the action that government will take after.

    And what will the government do if people start making their own electricity? They will put a tax on it, so you will have to pay tax, because you are not buying their electricity directly. Aaaand there goes your cheaper option.

    Not practical, nor cheap for a gag, but IBM Beamspring

    Weird diskmark results with MX200

    Have you installed Crucial's software? If you have it has an option to use your RAM as a cache for the SSD, so that is what is producing those way higher than they should be results.
