    Memtest shows 1 error on the 20th pass

    Who do you buy your ram from and how many errors do you have? If ZFS needs a lot of ram, why not just max out mobos, ram is supposed to be making the largest difference? Thoughts? Happy Thanksgiving!

    No, not from Mac to PC, but from Camino nightly's to Webkit nightly's I have to say -- Safari is one smooth browser. Camino was nice, but Webkit feels much more mac-like.
