Title: Greetings.

Hello thar!

Well, I've been lurking the forums for a few days, and errr... Thought I might as well bother to make an intro here before it was too late =P

Where to start?

Oh right..

Well, I ain't going to reveal my name IRL, but you can refer to me as N73VDK (Name which originated back in the day when I was a dev for the Symbian S60 platform (Maybe that will explain the reasoning of said name xD.)) In any case, I'm from Madrid, in Spain... (Although I was actually born and studied a few years in England.) I discovered Whited00r rather recently due to a post on Lifehacker (Or was it Ars Technica?) And I must admit I'm rather impressed so far, not only with the actual firmware build, but also by the rather chillaxed, friendly, and helpful ambient in the forum, you rock, and I'm glad to have joined. ^_^ 

TL:DR : Hey!

Why, thank you Sir. Should admit though... The hard drive is bottlecapping my system like crazy (As mentioned previously this is used primarily for gaming (ie: Battlesation)) When I get a job and save up again, I'll probs be getting an SSD.... Hopefully...

A 1.5TB drive isn't enough? O.o

Storagewise? It's enough for now... But in IT, there never is an 'enough' especially in gaming, lol.

But no, the bottlecap is caused by the access speeds, an HDD is simply too slow when compared to an SSD, this is very noticeable when stuck in loading screens, or how long it takes to open/save/edit large files.
