Yesterday I wrote about the hard drive shortage due to the flooding in Thailand (here)… At the time, we were not actually feeling the affects, however, 24hrs later, we sure are! The same terabyte SATA drives which sold for 60 dollars back on October 3rd, are approaching 140 dollars each today, and many vendors have sold out of them. Those …
