A big move for the A. Fuller hosting company. ;-)

At the end of the month, when my loot from a small contract arrives, I'm
going to my local vendor to buy a pair of 1TB drives. After I install them
and the USB 3.0 card to drive them, the plan is to use Acronis DriveImage
to image my four current drives, then wipe them clean and lose the current
multi-boot setup completely. I'll set one OS (Win7 Ultimate 64-bit) as the
hard disk boot, but also create at least a couple of bootable USB sticks,
one for each OS -- Server, Win7 Ultimate, and Ubuntu. I have been led to
believe that using USB 3.0 and bootable sticks, one can decrease the bootup
time to under a minute. That would be truly nice!

Prediction is difficult, especially of the future.
